In modern metalworking, the filtration of cooling lubricants has become an important profitability success factor. In the tool grinding process, optimally cleaned coolants play a significant role in finished product quality since chips, disk abrasion and other particles can interfere with the typically tight tolerances in tool making. This is even more important in the manufacture of micro tools. Coolants requiring less maintenance save money by reducing downtime and also through reduced demand which results in smaller inventories and less frequent recycling needs.
Lars Adler, production manager at Vomat, states: "To ensure that high production and quality levels are met - but also to exploit rationalization potential - Vomat manufactures powerful filtration systems which combine all of our technical benefits despite their compact design and small footprint. A wide range of add-on components allow for configuring not only individual solutions, but also large plant-wide systems with optimal integration into the respective production processes."
Vomat systems filter coolants using full flow technology and keep 100 percent separation between the dirty and clean oil. In this way, the user is always grinding with pure coolants. In order to keep the filters clean, Vomat developed an on-demand back-flush technology that monitors the contamination level of each individual filter element and automatically induces the back-flush when needed. The other filter elements keep working to ensure a continuous and complete supply of clean oil during the back-flush cycle. This fully automatic control and regulation of the filter capacity keeps the energy and operating costs low. Other advanced Vomat technologies give control of the coolant temperature in the range of ± 0.2 K and allow for the collection of valuable carbide in drums which are then ready for processing through the recycling company of your choice.
