|Grinding wheel wear|
|Reduction of coolant||634 l/min||351 l/min|
The lubricoolant requirements could be reduced for each individual facility so that investment costs of around 2.5 million in a new filtration facility & hall (old facility at the limit, but 6 more machines are to be added to the network) would no longer be necessary. In addition, the thermal problems in surface grinding were eliminated by using grindaix nozzles.The right combination of our nozzle technology, together with our selection of a correct pump, immediately resulted in success.
* 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).
