Safety Solutions for the Metal Industry

You can rely on personal protective equipment from 3M: for more than 100 years, we have been developing effective and individual PPE solutions for the metalworking industry.

From steel works to aluminium smelters, from welding works to lead recycling: we understand user requirements and work together with them to create a safe working environment. Through innovations, we ensure a high level of both safety and comfort in demanding work environments. The metal industries are faced with a multitude of dangers, identifying those hazards and the best protection solution is not always easy. 3M can help to support you through this process and help you make correct decisions based on your needs.

  • Metal Production

    Metal Production

    Things are really hot here: In iron furnaces, iron ore is used to extract pig iron. Extreme working conditions prevail so it is essential to completely protect your employees. 3M offers you optimal integrated heat protection solutions so your employees can work safely and productively.

    Case Study: Lead factory

  • Metal Fabrication (semi-finished products)

    Metal Fabrication (semi-finished products)

    In metal processing, the liquid metal is first cast as pigs, ingots or slabs. The further processing of the pigs takes place in the foundries, with the iron being smelted again. This casting process produces extreme heat and flying sparks: personal protective equipment, which can consistently cope with the high demands and provides full protection, is indispensable.

  • Metal Fabrication (finished products)

    Metal Fabrication (finished products)

    From metal to finished product: the basic material then undergoes further processing in all kinds of industries. These processes all involve typical metalworking tasks, such as welding, cutting, turning, drilling, milling, planing. At 3M, we provide suitable PPE for each of these applications and workplaces, providing your staff with effective and reliable protection.

Typical Hazards

  • airborne hazards

    Airborne Hazards

    Welders are well aware of the complex risks and dangers inherent in their work. Heat and flying sparks are obvious. But what about process-related pollutants that welders are exposed to every day? Are your employees fully and effectively protected against all health hazards? We help you identify the risks and find suitable solutions. With respiratory protection solutions that not only protect but also increase efficiency in the workplace.

Top Metal Fabrication & Production Applications

Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes, most commonly welding. It is a value-added process that 3M understands well. From abrasive discs and belts to industry leading welding PPE - we are here to help.

  • Casting and Deburring

    Casting and Deburring

    Fettling or deburring ensures reliable and even removal of flashing on metal workpieces. Sparks, splinters and particles fly. Personal protective equipment from 3M reliably protects your employees from these hazards.

  • Welding

    Welding

    Effective all-round protection is needed against all kinds of risks. 3M provides integrated PPE which combines comprehensive eye, face and respiratory protection in a single system. The innovative welding helmets from 3M enable welding results combined with great wearer comfort and safety.

  • Grinding, cutting, polishing

    Grinding, cutting, polishing

    Sparks fly, particles pollute the ambient air, not to speak of the noise. When cutting and grinding metal various health risks arise which require comprehensive protection. 3M knows these requirements from practical experience and has developed integrated PPE systems to measure.
