High Pressure Coolant Pumps
High Pressure Coolant (HPC) and Ultra High Pressure Coolant (UHPC) – a steep change in machine capability
Pumps and Equipment lead the way in the application of High Pressure and Ultra High Pressure Coolant in the machining process. Solutions are offered in turning, drilling, milling, and grinding.
|20-70 bar||HPC||High Pressure Coolant|
|70-200 bar||UHPC||Ultra High Pressure Coolant|
The benefit of using HPC and UHPC reduces manufacturing cost:
As an example of the improvement from using HPC and UHPC, one company we worked with were able to improve their processing of INCONEL as follows:
|Material was INCONEL||Before improvements||After improvements|
|Total cost of inserts per part||£236.25||£29.17|
|Time Cycle||5 hours||2 hours 30 minutes|
Other benefits also include:
- Longer Tool Life
- Better swarf control.
- Improved surface finish
- Elevated cutting speeds and feeds.
For the last 20 years P&E have supported research and development (R&D) of HPC and UHPC solutions in colloration with university and industry leaders. Results have been such that the implementation of this technology is in great demand. Industries to benefit have been aviation, medical, oil, semi-conductor, and automotive, to name a few.
In addition to supplying high pressure systems Pumps and Equipment (Warwick) Ltd. provide chiller systems, and offer a complete design, build and installation service. Solutions usually comprise either retrofitting existing machines or installation of new machines.
We have solutions for all STAR sliding head machines, for which we have been appointed the UK manufacturer and supplier for STAR GB.
