Compact parts cleaning and collection unit
The pneumatically driven unit cleans parts by capturing expensive coolants for reuse.
The pneumatically driven unit cleans parts by capturing expensive coolants for reuse. This unit captures chips for recycling while minimizing the risk of workers inhaling coolant aerosol and having it settle on floors. One-touch operation allows parts to be blown off and cleaned after machining, while your machine continues to cut parts resulting in improved cycle time and increased productivity. It can also be used at an inspection station to clean off oily parts prior to inspection. Air is driven out a nozzle while simultaneously, vacuum suction pulls the valuable coolant into the container. Exhausted air is filtered to levels that can help your facility meet OSHA standards. It will be featured in this year's upcoming IMTS show.
