DISKUSDDW 1060 R
|Grinding wheel wear|
|Reduction of coolant||736 l/min||450 l/min|
|Reduction of energy / year||237.000 kWh||45.000 kWh|
The total cost of ownership (TCO) of this Diskus grinding machine was reduced by the more efficient supply of lubricoolant. Longer cycle times (without grinding friction) were also achieved using a combination of jet blade and needle nozzles. It was possible to eliminate an LP pump completely due to the overall lower output rate and the lower pressure requirement.
* This is an exemplary application. This optimization is application-specific and not necessarily transferable to all machines of this type.
Procedure for a Retrofit Package
1 Coolant Audit
Analysis of machine(s) on site (approx. 5 h per machine) during productive operation. Analysis of pipework in machine room - machine offline just 1 hour. Determination of savings and optimisation potential.
2 Engineering / Composition of Retrofit Kit
Presentation of your current lubricoolant situation, incl. potentials (€/kWh/[l/min]), technical recommendation of retrofit measures and parts list.
Installation of grindaix retrofit kit into your machine tool incl. all mechanical/mechatronic work CE conformity, documentation amendments, liability.
Test of possible improvements with regard to productivity (cycle time), tool life, energy consumption, lubricoolant savings (verification).
