Getting on the Mark at IMTS
Several of the manufacturers that we represent will be displaying their products and introducing some technology at the International Manufacturing Technology Show September 12-17 in Chicago.
If you are heading to the show be sure to stop and visit our friends at:
Protection from foul hammer blows achieved with Safety First Stamp Grip and other hand stamp holders. These traditional products are made for rugged applications where quality is key, and safety a priority. Options include:
Now more than ever companies are looking to protect their workers from workplace hazards. TBH offers the broadest range of products in the industry to cover your industrial filtration and extraction requirements.
Over 25 years of experience, coupled with our modular design provides us with the knowledge and flexibility to ensure that particulate, vapor, and fumes are removed in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
Various industrial processes can cause hazardous, toxic vapors, gases, aerosols and particulates that can be harmful to your employees’ and customers’ health. Even non-toxic substances affect workplace quality with dust and odor nuisance and are dangerous to your employees’ health.
Adding a fume extractor or filtration system to your facility can eliminate many of these hazards. Here are some of the applications where TBH provides solutions by removing toxic, hazardous and damaging by-products.
BF-Series: Basic Filtration
The Basic Filtration, or BF series for short, contains all essential functions of a filter and extraction system as a compact base model. The systems of the BF series can be equipped with various engine concepts and filters. The proven modular design of TBH with its many advantages is used. The differential pressure display monitors the saturation filter. All systems of the BF series have a particularly energy-saving blower, high negative pressure and powerful control electronics
GL-Series: Green Line
The GL series stands as "Green Line" for particularly environmentally friendly air filtration. We specifically have designed it considering the protection of the environment by programming it to require less power than usual extraction systems. The energy-saving and noiseless blowers used are barely noticeable in noise-sensitive environments such as laboratories and offices. It is possible to save up to 65% energy.

Leading Marks will be featuring several products in our display including the Max USA BePop (labeling) and TBH (filtration). Join us at booth #520 as we highlight the products available to enhance workplace safety.
Avoid workplace hazards and accidents by making sure:
It’s a New Year with new regulations for manufacturing. Are you in compliance for the Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for General Industry effective June 23, 2018?
So, you ask, why would Leading Marks ask this question? It’s a good time to talk about the products offered through Leading Marks that aren’t marking. Many of the product solutions have a foundational tool that is multi-purposed.
Take the impact press, that is the core component for the pattern labeling package offered to the casting industry. This same unit can be equipped with tooling for light duty bending, crimping, forming, riveting, staking, and other applications.
Machining components that need marked takes tooling to make the part. The Tapmatic Tapwriter head is an example of using the core strength of the organization that provides tapping heads to machine shops and expanding to another process that can be done in-machine. Tapping attachment options include: self-reversing CNC tapping attachments, synchronized tapping, tension compression tap chucks, self-reversing manual tapping attachments with pre-selective torque drive, quick-change adapters, accessories, cutting fluids and dispensers.
And the Hexacon soldering irons, did you know that a soldering iron is the base tool of a branding iron? Simply add an engraved marking die and you can add a variety of impressions to leather, wood, and other materials. But the strength of the Hexacon line is their heavy-duty soldering stations, and the variety of options between their pencil soldering irons.

Fume extraction systems on the other hand, are a complementary product to the laser marking systems to help maintain the systems for optimal marks and make for a safe work station. Soldering also has the potential to create toxic environments where with the addition of fume extraction becomes a safer work cell with better air quality. Particulates in the air come from many processes, and often cannot be seen but over time results as a hazard for the worker.
As companies are faced with new regulations, like the silica standard, their desire to maintain safe work places causes them to evaluate potential hazards for off-gassing and clean air. Many shops are equipped with full service dust collectors. However, the toxic fumes resulting from various processes like laser marking & welding, soldering, machining and others, benefit by installations of dedicated systems at the point of process. This provides more protection and higher quality air.
Should you find you need assistance to improve your manufacturing processes for marking, soldering and machining, and improve the safety with the equipment – including air quality – let’s identify the solutions Leading Marks can assist with. Get in touch with us if you have any questions!
