Downdraft tables are used to capture plasma smoke and fumes. A blower pulls air out of the enclosed table below the plate. The smoke is ejected out of the bottom of the kerf at a high velocity and as long as enough air is being pulled through the blower, very little plasma smoke should escape. MultiCam Canada is a licensed distributor of Sideros Downdraft Tables. Sideros Engineering offers a range of sophisticated high quality downdraft tables. Sideros offers four different types of downdraft tables for plasma, oxy and laser cutting operations:
