I had the pleasure of attending the BI-MU exhibition with our Italian distributor, Magugliani SRL, from September 30th – October 4th in Milan, Italy. BI-MU is an exhibition dedicated to the Italian machine tool, robot, and automation industries. And, our distributor is very keen on finding relevant applications and solving problems in these industries.
One of the most frequent applications we discussed was the use of the Adjustable Spot Cooler. During milling operations or in lathe turning applications, considerable heat is generated when the cutting edge is applied to the work piece. This heat can cause the metal (or other material being machined) to adhere or even weld to the cutting edge or flute of a bit. Such a condition presents quality control problems, and loss concerns due to machine tool downtime.
The Adjustable Spot Cooler can remove these problems from a machining application using only compressed air – no liquid. By directing extremely cold air (as low as -30F) to the machining area, the heat is removed and the useful time of the cutting edge is in increased. By cooling the precise area generating the heat, the Adjustable Spot Cooler can boost the productivity and quality of parts coming out of a machine.
