|Grinding wheel wear|
High pressure drop between booster pump and grinding nozzles led to a very low lubricoolant outlet speed -> long cycle times were necessary because grinding friction occurred otherwise.
- Use of a booster pump from 1.5 to 3.5 bar
- Replacement of slot nozzles with needle nozzles
- Reduction of cycle time by 25% (without grinding friction)
* 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).
