High grinding friction-related waste avoided. The supply of the grinding points was clearly insufficient (-60%). Secondary consumers (band flushing et. al.) were separated and the grinding nozzles were equipped with a booster pump. In addition, profiled needle nozzles with corrected grinding position and angle were used. The lubricoolant outlet speed was increased by 15 m/s while maintaining the amount of lubricoolant.
* 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).
