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.

  • The Long And Short Of Bar Feeder Selection

    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.

  • What Is The Best Bar Feed System For Production Turning?

    Selecting the right bar feeder can be one of the most important decisions a shop can make. Bar feed systems help improve productivity, throughput and quality, but in order to achieve the most benefit from them it is essential that a bar feed system be matched to the particular needs of the turning operation.

  • Robots as Precision Machine Tools

    To remain competitive, high-end manufacturing companies are looking for accurate, reliable and maintenance-free machine tools offering fast change-over, programming and setup. Industrial robot technology could provide an excellent base for machining because it is flexible and affordable.
