Another central KNOLL installation is taking over cooling lubricant preparation and chip disposal for a German manufacturer of agricultural machinery.

The installation concept is based on multi-stage filtration with reversible flow filters and replaces a 27-year-old system for manufacturing large parts. There were a number of challenging requirements: 

  • 20,000 l/min cooling lubricant volume flow, 1.1 t/h chip mass flow
  • The new installation has to replace the old one in the same place
  • The new installation has to be assembled at the same time the old one is disassembled
  • A three-week (20-day) time frame over Christmas/New Year 2016/17

The race entailed by the project schedule called for shift-based assembly. We worked hand-in-hand with an external service provider and cooperated with the customer very closely in the process.
