All general workplace safety rules should be followed when operating the printer. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure compliance with all local, regional, and national regulations. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the user to ensure that the system is installed and maintained properly by ETEC.
People who suffer from skin sensitization problems, asthma allergies, and chronic respiratory illnesses should not be deployed in the preparation process.
Safety data sheets (SDS) for materials used in the printing process are available either from ETEC or directly from suppliers. Read and understand the information provided in these documents prior to attempting to operate the printer or handle any media.
Important: Make sure the extraction is sufficient. ETEC recommends an air change of 25 m³/h per m² effective surface of the laboratory per EN 16798-3 or 3.2 m³/h per m² per US ANSI ASRAE 62. Check local requirements.
For accident prevention, make sure all operators wear suitable protective clothing:
- protective gloves
- safety boots
- laboratory coats
- safety goggles
- dust mask during post-processing
If you are injured while operating the printer or handling media, refer to any first aid directions included in the material SDS. If a minor injury occurs — such as cuts, bruises, lifting injuries, or other related injuries — generally accepted first aid procedures should be followed. If a serious injury occurs, procedures for contacting emergency first responder personnel should be immediately implemented.
