Get smart with fluid application
The SmartFlow® allows metal formers to take full control of die and stock lubrication. This full-featured, programmable fluid controller makes configuring, controlling, monitoring, and tracking fluid application easier than ever, leading to increased profits from the stamping or forming operation.
Designed around an intuitive and easy-to-use operator interface, the SmartFlow® provides simple and guided setup, advanced press control integration, fluid usage tracking, process monitoring, and enhanced diagnostic and maintenance tools.
Save and recall jobs manually or utilize the press control interface for easy, automatic changeover. Back up and transfer jobs and settings between lines with a USB flash drive and the SmartFlow's® USB port. Pair the SmartFlow® controller with Unist's proven line of precision fluid applicators for an intelligent lubrication system that eliminates wasted fluid and mess, reduces scrap, and maximizes profits.
The automatic lubrication system intermittently actuates a bank of fluid Solenoid Valves (up to 22 outputs) that dispense a programmed quantity of fluid to specific lube points. The valve actuation on this electronic fluid dispenser is determined by production line rates so there is no under or over lubrication whether it is a stamping press or roll forming operation.
- Monitors critical parameters
- Precision fluid control
- Controls up to 22 outputs
- Stores up to 250 different setups/jobs
- Access code prevents tampering
- Saves fluid: precisely controls fluid
Combine the SmartFlow® with a Uni-Roller® applicator to reduce fluid usage and save money
On average, a Unist automatic lubrication system can reduce stamping fluid consumption by 50% with some customers reporting reductions as high as 90%!
Touch screen interface
Easily create jobs
Provides programmable control for the following applications/Unist systems:
(Mini-Roller™, Uni-Roller® S2)
(Mini-Roller™, Uni-Roller® S2, Uni-Roller S2 Powered®, TSL™ System, Low Volume Spray Nozzle)
- Fine blanking
(Uni-Roller® S2, Uni-Roller® S2 Powered)
- Deep Drawing
(Uni-Roller® S2, Uni-Roller® S2 Powered)
- Application of rust preventives & protective coatings
(Low Volume Spray Nozzle, Uni-Roller® S2)
Delivers return on investment in less than 6 months
SmartFlow® controller and Uni-Roller® lubricator uses 50 to 90% less lubricant. Plus it decreases the mess, the parts cleaning, fluid recycling and costs associated with in-die spray systems, rag technology and externally lubricated rollers.
