Cutting Fluids & Swarf Management - IMTMA/M007
For many industries, cutting fluids are just a consumable ? buy at the lowest cost, discard after a specific period of usage, replenish as necessary to make up for spills and leaks. Cutting fluids can make a major impact on machining productivity; e.g.:? timing between regrinding and number of parts per tool edge etc. Usage of proper cutting fluids will improve productivity, reduce cost and make the manufacturing process cost competitive. The right approach would be to treat cutting fluids as liquid assets, with attention to how they are stored, monitored, dispensed and replaced in order to reduce the overall cost. Proper monitoring and control of coolant not only improves the work environment but also eliminates rancid coolant and messy cleanups to a greater extent. On the other hand chip conveyors and filtration systems forms an integral part of CNC machines.Therefore, selection of chip conveyors and filtration units based on material being machined, amount of Swarf generated, coolant volume, etc., and is critical for effective functioning. Equally important is the care and maintenance of chip conveyors and filtration systems for trouble free running of CNC machines.
The need for Productivity Institute
- Is your work place suffering from poor productivity?
- Do you feel that supervision is weak on the shop floor?
- Do your shop floor personnel find it difficult to achieve targets?
- You have the machine in place, but not the men to optimize usage?
Realizing the need to enhance the skill sets of fresh engineers in mechanical engineering to make "Industry Employable" and to mould them as per the company requirements, IMTMA organizes
The rapid growth of Indian machine tool Industry and the increasing sophistication of machine tool has created the need for a new breed of machine tool technologists.
