Pavilion Groups Parts Cleaning Suppliers
Parts cleaning plays a significant role in final product quality for many shops. As technology continues to move forward and regulatory guidelines become even stricter, it is important for these shops to stay on top of the latest cleaning procedures, equipment and accessories.
Deep-Bed Filters Boost Machine Performance
Mayfran International says its Hydrostatic Paper Filter, the HPF-300, combines chip removal and coolant filtration technology to improve the productivity of high-performance metal-cutting and finishing machines.
Coolant Filtering System Delivers A Clutch Performance
Sludge and grit in contaminated coolant can build up in the moving parts of machine tools and increase component wear, adversely impacting productivity. Faced with rising maintenance costs and increased machine downtime, this manufacturer of automotive components found a solution in a coolant cleaning system developed by Mayfran International.
Chipping Away Roadblocks To Higher Productivity
Hybrid machine tools—those that provide multiple machining processes, such as turning centers that also do milling, or machining centers that can turn and face parts—can have an impact lowering in-process inventory levels and improving quality through single machine handling. Unfortunately these same machines, by offering multiple processes, also produce a more diverse selection of chips, from large to small, strings and curled springs, to fine dust-like particles, depending upon the application's material.
Improving Quality, Productivity And Tool Life With High Performance Chip Handling
Continuous improvement--most of the time it is painstakingly slow...squeezing out small-tolerance refinements, fractions of more parts per hour or minor ergonomic enhancements. Rare are those instances where the improvements are significant, and they are even more exceptional when what happens is secondary to the project's intentions.
Handling Chips In Hog Heaven
The Harley-Davidson Motor Company is concentrating on increasing productivity to meet the growing demand for its product line. Among the contant improvements to their manufacturing processes is an overhead system that transports chips and coolant from eight machining stations to a central separation and filter unit.
