|Grinding wheel wear|
The processing problems, particularly with frontal grinding, were corrected by an improved supply of lubricoolant via Grindaix nozzles. The existing pump could continue to be used. Here too, only the exact balance of the new lubricoolant nozzles for the grinding area with the existing secondary lubricoolant consumers in the machine and the existing pressure supply was effective. All the customer’s preceding trials were time-consuming and unfortunately remained unsuccessful.
* 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).
