Laser cutters and engravers call us often about unbearable odors the laser cutting machines emit while cutting. They use a CO2 laser beam to cut many materials such as wood, acrylic, plastic, marble amongst others. The smells are a common issue in this industry and the solution is rather simple.

Unfortunately, the replacement filters that the cutting and engraving machine manufacturer provides are very expensive. This is not true. With a little bit of know-how, you can make a similar filter for much less money.

Activated carbon is a very cost effective way to remove the odors from cutting. Purchasing from a leading manufacturer like us, General Carbon, will save you substantial money. We supply high quality carbon at very reasonable prices. Purchasing a higher quality carbon will save you time and money in the long run as it lasts much longer and does not require as frequent changeouts. We suggest that you use a 4-millimeter pellet, GC C-40, or a 4×8 granular coconut shell activated carbon, GC 4x8S. We have had many repeat customers for these products.

Please contact us if you should have any questions, or would like pricing on these products.

Thank you.
