|Grinding wheel wear|
|Reduction of coolant||825 l/min||431 l/min|
The challenge was in the reduction of the lubricoolant consumption to reduce the lubricoolant cooling costs by electric cooling units (chillers). It was possible to implement the savings with a Grindaix nozzle set including on-site installationand modification. At the same time, the lubricoolant outlet speed was adjusted so that the production process could be managed in a much more robust manner.
* 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).
