168 Manufacturing releases automatic coolant delivery system for CNC machines
June 10, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
168 Manufacturing has released the FullShop Automated Coolant Delivery System, which automatically delivers properly mixed coolant to multiple CNC machines.
The FullShop system monitors coolant usage at the machine tool sump and automatically replenishes the coolant before it runs low to keep the spindles spinning around the clock. The system consists of a centralized pumping station, controller, distribution manifolds and a small sensor that drops into any machine tool sump to report level and temperature.
With its compact footprint and modular design, a single FullShop system automates shops with up to 120 CNC machines and could deliver up to 5,760 gallons of coolant a day. It also enables lights-out manufacturing, allowing machine shop owners to run high-volume jobs unattended overnight.
Features the FullShop system include per machine concentrations with closed-loop flowmeter assurance, internet-enabled features like email alarm notification, data reporting, remote operations and teleservice, advanced HMI for added insight and an optional defoamer dosing functionality.
The system has a small footprint of 50×60 inches and features distribution nodes for clean installation.
