The Micromag general-purpose magnetic filter from Eclipse Tools provides standard filtration for smaller wash stations in non-chemical environments. The compact filter is designed to remove ferrous contamination from all industrial fluids, while abrasives and non-magnetic material can be removed by entrapment. According to Eclipse, the filter increases fluid life and requires no consumables and little maintenance, except periodic cleaning.
 
Contaminated fluid enters the inlet port and is dispersed and slowed by tapered radial flow channels. Then, the fluid passes up the outside of the centrally mounted rare earth magnetic core, which attracts and retains contamination particles. The filtered fluid then flows through return slots at the top of the magnetic core and down through the center to exit through the outlet port.
 
Three standard models are available: the MM5/1.0 with a flow rate of 18 gpm (70 L/min.); the MM10/1.0 with a flow rate of 26 gpm (100 L/min.); and the MM20/1.5 with a flow rate of 40 gpm (150 L/min.). The units are capable of holding 2.2 lbs (1 kg), 4.4 lbs (2 kg) and 8.8 lbs (4 kg) of contamination, respectively. All three models offer a maximum operating pressure of 174 psi (12 bar). The company also offers the Micromag HP for high-pressure applications.

  • 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.

  • Running Unattended at Night Lets Machine Shop Serve New Customers During Day

    Precision Tool Technologies found capacity for diversification not by adding machines, people or space, but by freeing up time. Running unattended—running so it can machine through all 168 hours in the week—has enabled this shop to use hours when staff is present to deliver work that lands outside its established specialty. To achieve unattended machining, some of the biggest challenges have related to basic details such as chips and coolant.

  • The 400° Difference

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
