|Grinding wheel wear
|Reduction of coolant
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).
