New KEMPERbeats extraction hood with integrated Bluetooth speaker sets new standards – effective occupational health and safety thanks to increased capture rate.
Vreden/Stuttgart, November, 2019 – Switch on your smartphone, connect to the extraction hood via Bluetooth and hear your personal playlist while you work: KEMPERbeats ensures employee motivation and health protection at the same time during welding. KEMPER has developed an extraction hood that sets new standards in welding fume extraction for the individual design of your personal workplace. It not only makes it possible to listen to music, it also increases the degree of detection of hazardous substances during welding. In addition to other new developments, KEMPERbeats met with great visitor interest at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart.
Extraction hoods are the most frequently used technology worldwide for extracting harmful fumes, particles and vapours directly at their point of origin during welding. KEMPER GmbH went one step further with its new extraction hood: "With our new development, we are thinking beyond pure extraction", explained Björn Kemper, CEO of KEMPER GmbH. “KEMPERbeats creates a pleasant working atmosphere for welders, increases employee motivation and, ultimately, also productivity." At the same time, the solution encourages the use of extraction technology. And companies send positive employer signals to their employees regarding the workplace design of the future.
KEMPERbeats is an additional feature of the new KEMPER extraction hood. Behind it lies a special handle with Bluetooth loudspeaker. This allows employees to network the hood with any end device during their work and listen to their music even while the extraction system is running. Thanks to the individual music selection, welders can design their workplace according to their personal preferences. The loudspeakers are designed in such a way that employees at surrounding workplaces are not disturbed.
