Adding high pressure coolant to your machine tool is an easy way to increase production and cut manufacturing costs. The addition of high pressure coolant can increase productivity by allowing for increased feeds and speeds, improved workpiece quality and surface finish, and reduced manufacturing costs with longer insert and tool life. How can this be you ask? The answers to that question are below:
How can adding a High Pressure Coolant Unit increase productivity?
High pressure coolant dissipates heat and deflects chips from the work surfaces allowing for higher feed rates and faster spindle speeds. This can reduce cycle times as much as 20%-40%.
How can adding a High Pressure Coolant Unit increase tool life?
We all know that chips damage expensive custom and conventional tooling. Adding high pressure coolant increases the amount of coolant flow to the cutting area, expediting chip removal. By forcing more coolant to the cutting tool and cutting surface, you fundamentally reduce tool wear and breakage. Longer tool life is ultimately achieved.
How can adding a High Pressure Coolant Unit reduce downtime?
Longer tool life equates to less time changing tools and our dual-bag filter system allows for easy filter changes while the CNC machine tool is in production mode.
How can CNC Indexing help me to choose which High Pressure Coolant Unit would best fit my manufacturing needs and increase my shop’s ROI?
The answer to that question is defined within the different models CNC Indexing offers below:
- The HPC-400 high pressure coolant system is CNC Indexing’s 8 GPM gear pump system for water based coolant and is adjustable between 75 – 427 PSI. This unit comes standard with an on-board transfer pump. It is ideal for lathe and vertical mill applications or for shops that have a limited budget but still need a high pressure coolant system.
- The HPC-1000 is our most popular coolant system. It is our 8 GPM 7.5 HP gear pump system for oil and water based coolant and is adjustable between 75 – 1,000 PSI. This unit comes standard with an on-board transfer pump, 37 gallon reservoir tank and 4 port outlets. The HPC-1000 is most commonly used on milling machines (both horizontal and vertical) as well as lathes, and can be used in conjunction with other manufacturing equipment.
- The HPC-1500 is also CNC Indexing’s gear pump system with 8 GPM 7.5 HP for oil and water based coolant and is adjustable between 75 – 1,500 PSI. This unit comes standard with an on-board transfer pump, 37 gallon reservoir tank and 4 port outlets It is ideal for applications utilizing tools with large coolant orifices that require higher flow rates.
- The HPC-2000 is our largest standardized high pressure coolant system using only oil based coolant. It offers a 6 GPM 10 HP gear pump system that is adjustable between 75-2000 PSI. This unit comes standard with an on-board transfer pump, 37 gallon reservoir tank, 8 port outlets, and oil chiller. It is ideal for CNC Swiss lathe machine tool applications.
