Edge Technologies’ Vortex AF series is a soluble coolant mist collection system designed for machine tools performing wet machining operations. The system is a synthesis of centrifugal separation and HEPA air filtration, achieving optimum air purification with minimum maintenance, according to the company. This system uses a three-stage process for removing water-soluble coolant mist, fog, aerosols and smoke. At Stage one, the coolant mist airstream collides with the fish-scale profile shield, coalescing into larger droplets. Next, particles greater than 2 microns are captured through wind-shear effect with the 70 degree self-draining mesh filter. At Stage two, a centrifugal impeller located in the 2nd chamber provides efficient airflow and low noise continuing the separation process. At Stage three, particles greater than 0.3 microns are captured using a E12 HEPA filter, which is said to result in 99.97 percent filtering efficiency (measured by MPPS method) and releases purified air back into the plant.

    For many shops, the decision comes down to a 4- or 12-foot-capacity magazine-style bar feeder. Here are some guidelines for choosing between them.

  • Simplifying Machine Load/Unload Automation

    Today, lower part volumes and frequent change-over are changing the offerings of some automation integrators. Standard, off-the-shelf components are being engineered to work together in a large variety of applications and, in some cases, are even portable so they can be moved from machine tool to machine tool.

    Urethane spindle liners present a viable option to steel to fill the gap between spindle ID and bar OD. They protect both the spindle and bar stock and increase machine performance.
