New: Coolant Display

The grindaix team has developed a Coolant Display. This enables you to read out the lubricoolant exit speed on almost all lubricoolant nozzles.

Attach the pressure sensor to the nozzle, upload the grindaix characteristic curve, read out the data on the electronic display - DONE! This is possible because grindaix generates a characteristic curve for every lubricoolant nozzle, by means of which the interplay between lubricoolant pressure, lubricoolant exit speed and lubricoolant volume flow can be displayed clearly. - more

Research

Grindaix is affiliated to the Light Alliance industry working group. Light Alliance is a research and industry association concerned with the manufacture of metal products using 3D laser sintering.

In the future grindaix will produce specific components for the lubricoolant system using generative manufacturing methods. We are obtaining the know-how required for this from this specialist committee, the only one of its kind in Germany.

In early 2014 Laserzentrum Nord GmbH set up a new industry working group for laser production methods for function and weight-optimised components. The focus of this group is a 5-step development model that allows conventional products to be optimised in respect of weight and function. Members of the network receive specific product solutions in regular workshops using three light demonstrators that are being developed over a period of two years into innovative light components.

The initial event on 23 January 2014 at Laserzentrum Nord is free for visitors to the Light Conference held the previous day. Further information about the event and registration is available on the Light Alliance homepage www.light-alliance-hh.de

Coolant audit and retrofit package for machine tools

The Erwin Junker Maschinenfabrik GmbH company cooperates with grindaix in improving the efficiency of lubricoolant use for machine tools.

Grindaix GmbH audits machines on behalf of this leading German machine tool manufacturer and identifies savings potentials in the use of lubricoolant, engineers a technical retrofit package and supplies this after consultation with the manufacturer.

The renowned Black Forest-based manufacturer then installs all the units and commissions them on-site for the customer. Grindaix finally establishes whether the efficiency improvements have been achieved and provides a seal of quality: “Machine audited by grindaix”.

All grindaix GmbH employees are very proud of this cooperation!

Over 60 Coolant Audits Successfully Completed in 2011.

After only two years of development and testing, the grindaix team was able to launch the Coolant Audit and Coolant Design service on the market in January 2011.

A total of over 60 coolant audits were subsequently carried out during 2011. Following an initial introduction phase, the company Erwin Junker Maschinenfabrik placed the first order in the second quarter of the business year. Other machine manufacturers and users of machine tools quickly followed suit. Three types of Coolant Audit were provided initially: Coolant Audit S (the rapid analysis), Coolant Audit M (the complete analysis) and Coolant Audit L (analysis of entire production lines). In June 2011, Coolant Audit F (analysis of lubricoolant filtration units) was added.

Successful Coolant Audit L Completed at Major Customer.

In collaboration with a major customer from the automotive industry, an entire production line has been audited. The analysed savings potential for lubricoolant related costs amounts to EUR 280,000 per annum for one production line.

The cost savings were analyzed together with the financial accounting department of the company. During the next step, the technical changes were determined per machine; these were implemented promptly by employees of the company without the need for additional investments.
