Lasers can be hazardous. Therefore, laser applications are categorised in different classes. Class 1 means the environment is safe in regards to laser radiation, whereas Class 4 means the risk of exposure is high and certain precautions must be undertaken.LMIAB offers solutions for guaranteeing that the work environment fulfills current safety directives and norms.
Laser safety is something that has been overlooked for a long time, not receiving the attention it needs. Today laser safety is taken much more seriously, and continues to become more prioritised therefore demands are rising.
Laser processing technology in all sorts of industrial segments today is perhaps one of the fastest growing technologies. The staff at LMI AB has been involved since the childhood of laser technology and has a deep understanding of the pros and cons with the technology. Unfortunately, a downside of the laser is that the security aspect is often neglected and doesn't recieve the same attention as other machinery, despite the hazards involved with using lasers.
Today, there are regulations and rules on how security needs to be handled when using lasers. Wherever lasers are used professionally demand that the equipment fulfills requirements in Arbetsmiljöverkets regulatory documents AFS 2009:7.
As a company focusing purely on laser technology, we are naturally very keen on laser security which is taken seriously. LMI is a partner with Lasermet, a world leader in both industry and medical laser security.
