Further information

Recirculation station RIP/RIS

Areas of application

The RIP/RIS recirculation station is a compact disposal and delivery unit designed for installation in special-purpose machine tools. It allows unmanned transfer of chips to a central separator/filter by means of coolant (RIP version) or suction air (RIS version). The RIP version also has the capacity to process longer aluminium chips in conjunction with a chip reducer unit. Otherwise, only short chips can be conveyed safely.

 

Properties

  • Fully automatic, unmanned chip transfer
  • 100% integration into the machine tool
  • Variable use of the station for dry and wet machining operations
  • Chip reducer can only be used for wet-machined aluminium
  • Conveyor channel and screws are adaptable to the station
  • All drives and maintenance areas within the machine tool have accessible covers

 

Function

 

RIP version for wet machining operations

The feed screws in the machine base transfer the chips and the coolant into the reservoir. Here, a metering screw feeds the chip/coolant mixture evenly to the recirculation pump, which conveys the mixture through the return line to the filtration system.

 

RIS version for dry machining operations

The feed screws in the machine base transfer the chips into the reservoir. Here, a metering screw feed the chips evenly into the flow of suction air, which conveys the chips through the suction line to the central extraction unit. The controlled interaction between the feed pump and between the central extraction system and the metering unit ensures reliable transfer of chips with and without coolant.
