Problem of this GLEASON PFAUTER P4500 grinding maschine: The lubricoolant filtration system was accordingly oversized because the grinding machine’s lubricoolant consumption was too high. This incurred significant energy costs despite the deficiencies in the lubricoolant’s cleaning performance.
- Replacement of grinding and extinguishing nozzles with Grindaix nozzles as well as the installation of a mechanical throttling in front of the extinguishing nozzles
- Replacement of the existing booster pump with a frequency-controlled, smaller LP pump (a pump with a frequency converter ensures a requirements-based lubricoolant supply in the future when changing the LP-30-Flex_G needle nozzles, suitable for the current module (m = 10-36)
* 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).
