Watch how we have applied Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) to a high production vertical machining center. Many benefits are to be realized by replacing your flood coolant with an MQL further more this does not have to be an expensive exercise. This short video shows a two nozzle Unist Coolubricator applying micro oil droplets to the tool and cutting areas externally. Don't let the competition have the cutting edge on your machining operations, stop wasting money and call John Barker today to discuss how we can make MQL work for you.
Development of very thin carbide tip and cermet tipped saw blades have attracted industries to use them for mass metal sawing applications as material cutting wastage or kerf loss is very similar to that of band saw machines. With the technological development of the blade, micro mist spray oil and high accuracy gear boxes, the […]
Here we show how we can simply modify an existing band saw that had been traditionally using flood coolant and transform it into a MQL (Minimal Quantity Lubrication) application. This modification is inexpensive to implement and can be fitted up quite easily, the transformation is remarkable, watch the short video to see how we do it. There are many […]
The owner of this saw wanted to eliminate the messy coolant that was causing skin irritation to his operators, so he called Unist in to fix it. Of cause there are many more benefits when you get rid of coolant, for a start coolant is a toxic waste product and has to be disposed of […]
Near Dry Sawing This is a truly amazing example of Near Dry Sawing. A basic Chinese machine (slightly modified) running a Rontgen BiAlpha Cobalt blade 7200 x 54 x 1.6 1.5-2 pitch, we wanted to cut a slice from this block of P20 tool steel. The slice was to be 810 wide x 600 deep x 5mm […]
We achieve our results by using positive displacement pumps to send micro amounts of oil (in a spray pattern) down to the saw blade. Where this concept is nothing new, Unist has been able to cut oil consumption dramatically by switching the customers oil to Coolube 2210AL. In one instance, we reduced the oil consumption […]
This brand new saw installation never saw one drop of Coolant. The customer insisted that this new machine had to be fitted with an oil spray lubrication system to lubricate the band saw blade. The benefits of this cost effective alternative are many, here are just a few: This MEP machine is capable of cutting […]
This machine can drill, route and then cut to length aluminium profiles of basically any shape. The machine is fitted with a 3 nozzle Coolubricator which sprays oil onto the cutter. This results in elimination of mess, cutters staying sharper longer, and happy operators. The cut-to-length saw is fitted with a Unist Saw system which lubricates the saw blade’s teeth, resulting in a clean cut while at the same time extending the life of the blade between sharpenings.
