|Grinding wheel wear|
|Reduction of coolant||212 l/min||117 l/min|
|Reduction of energy / year||55.300 kWh||8.300 kWh|
The main problem with the audited facility was the high rate of waste when grinding two components in one clamping. The “lower” component was supplied insufficiently. The nozzle mounting had to be reconstructed while allowing for the supply and removal component (robots).
Tool cleaning was also optimised by means of a combination of a Grindaix cleaning nozzle and a high pressure pump.
* 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).
