Quantum™

Product Info

Quantum Control

The Quantum™ gives you the ability to accurately and consistently quantify your lubrication settings. You can specify the fluid output down to a fraction of a drop to fine-tune machining processes, accurately measure and control usage, and share settings between multiple machines.

With both RS-232 and discrete input interfaces, the Quantum™ can integrate into almost any type of device. Whether used on a machine with a simple on-off switch or one with a PLC controller, the Quantum™ can be programmed with the precise settings needed for each job you run.

  • Integrate easily: Serial or discrete interface
  • Quantify your lubrication: Digitally-controlled output
  • Stay informed: Active monitoring
  • Enjoy the benefits of MQL on your CNC machine
  • Eliminate the flood coolant mess
  • Increase production rates
  • Improve surface finish

For engineers and machinists who understand the connection between process control and performance, the Quantum™ system represents a giant leap forward in lubricant delivery.

    Unist Spindle Kit

    To get the best through-spindle MQL performance, it is necessary to deliver the lubricant and air in separate channels through the spindle to the tool holder. The Unist Spindle Kit includes two specially-designed components: a rotary union and a fluid delivery tube.
