Eclipse Magnetics’ Micromag HP50 magnetic filter is designed to provide a cost-effective solution for applications ranging to 50-bar fluid pressure. The filter is designed to eliminate common coolant and lubricant circulation problems on machine tools and wash systems. Ferrous particles produced during machining processes, such as grinding, milling and drilling, can cause poor surface finish, drill burning, filter blockages and tool breakages, the company says. These issues can lead to increased operating costs, downtime and project rejects.
 

A high-intensity magnetic core extracts sub-micron size ferrous particles to protect parts and equipment from abrasive damage. In addition, it reduces expenditure on consumable items such as barrier filters. The filter’s high-quality, stainless steel construction enables the unit to be cleaned in minutes, the company says.

  • Alcohol-Based Coolant Offers Environmentally Friendly Machining

    This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.

  • Long-Lasting Coolant Reduces Costs, Downtime

    This shop provides a case in point of the substantial savings that can be realized with the proper coolant formulation. Rustlick Ultracut Pro, available from ITW Rocol North America, lasted twice as long in the sump than the shop’s previous coolant, leading to significant operating and maintenance cost savings.

    Minimum quantity lubricant can save money, improve tool life and improve the part finish. But it may involve changes to both the equipment and the processing strategy.
