Coolant pumps from Spandau Pumpen are now being deployed for the machining process and a modular island filter system, including chip conveyor, at the SKF Lubrication Systems plant in the Czech city of Chodov.
Supervisors have been noting lower energy and operating costs, and higher system availability, ever since installation. The filter system serves two production lines, each with three machine tools and a single-station solution. Full-flow cleaning of chips up to 25 µm in size is facilitated, plus up to 5 µm by a second fine-filter stage. Spandau Pumpen supplied three low-pressure and three high-pressure pumps (PS and LMP series), each with frequency converters.
