Capable of processing as much as 130 gpm, PRAB’s Paperbed filter is suitable for ferrous and nonferrous metals, as well as organic and inorganic contaminants such as glass, rubber and plastic. The filter is available with low- to medium-stock media and can also be equipped with an integral magnetic separator for larger-particle capture of ferrous metals. The drum-type paper bed filter requires less floor space than a traditional filter unit, and can help reduce operating costs by recycling and reusing spent coolant. Additionally, filtering coolant and metalworking fluids helps to control bacteria and improve quality of finished parts, the company says.

    Systems designed to put out fires inside machine tools can provide a level of protection that external systems such as overhead sprinklers cannot. They cost a small percentage of the investment represented by today’s CNC machines and certainly far less than repairing major damage caused by a fire.

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.
