Units for internal and external Minimal Quantity Lubrication (MQL)
The required aerosol quality is adjusted with the SKF LubriLean VarioPlus system by manual regulation of the air pressure and quantity of lubricant. Transport of the aerosol through lines as long as 20 m is no problem.
The production of aerosol is not stopped during the tool change. The newly required amount of aerosol is produced instead. The aerosol is directed through a 3/2-way ball valve. That makes sure the new quantity of aerosol is available right away when the process starts.
The aerosol produced during the tool change can be routed directly into the exhaust system or – if the system is optionally outfitted with an additional topping-up reservoir – through a demixing device.
Features & benefits
Can be used in nearly every production process in machining centers (optimally defined droplet size <0,5 µm)
Short response times (tool change)
No moving parts (wear-free)
Specially suitable for small tools and high cutting speeds
Simple integration in machine tool systems (retrofitting, standard production)
