|Grinding wheel wear|
|Reduction of energy / year||23.800 kWh||18.100 kWh|
By using a frequency-controlled LP pump instead of control valves, the level of performance required by the lubricoolant has been reduced. Thus less cooling capacity was required, which led to energy savings. In this example, grinding wheel cleaning was optimised by using Grindaix cleaning nozzles.
* 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).
