GMN's Prelub GP Oil-Air Lubricator Includes Rapid Error Correction
Westec 2019: The GMN oil-air lubricator Prelub GP is designed for the application of machine tool spindles.
The Prelub GP oil-air lubricator from GMN is designed for machine tool spindles. After a pre-lubrication cycle is defined, the device switches automatically to the normal lubrication cycle.
The Prelub GP has a modular construction keeping control and mechanical areas separate from each other. In case of an idle spindle, the unit can interrupt the lubrication cycle. The product also has error memory with rapid error correction, a clear plastic oil reservoir with optical filling level indication and an electronic control with display for setting parameters. The voltage range of 115 to 230 V makes the unit usable in different countries, while its menu includes multiple languages.
This designer and manufacturer of Harley-Davidson aftermarket motorcycle engines and related components, is using PCD milling to finish engine cases, oil pumps, rocker boxes, inner and outer primary engine covers, and transmission cases and covers.
With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.
Producing fine finishes on EDMed surfaces has long been a goal, especially for mold and die shops that operate ram-type electrical discharge machines. Lately, there has been renewed interest in using additives in the dielectric oil to achieve ultra fine finishes with graphite electrodes without excessive burn times.
