Absolent Air Care Group specialises in filters that purify polluted air from oil mist, oil smoke, gas and/or dust generated from various manufacturing processes. With Semcon’s help, the company is now developing the next-generation modular carbon filter for air purification based on a patented concept. With the help of user studies and expertise in areas such as product design, mechanical design and flow calculation, Semcon’s team has been looking into how to improve handling of the new carbon filters in terms of aspects such as ergonomics, air flow and production technology.
Stefan Banér, technical lead and project manager at Semcon Studios, said: “With a more efficient carbon filter design, more filters can fit into each compartment, or module, and with the help of user studies, they are also easier to handle when emptying.”
Semcon Studios is Semcon’s cross-functional development department and serves as an extended R&D department for the customer. In this project, Semcon is in charge of technology advancement based on the customer’s needs and is contributing with expertise in project management, industrial design, mechanical design, ergonomics, flow calculation and production technology. The project is expected to run until mid-2022.
