KNOLL: Central Systems

A completely automatic “System Solution” for the transport or treatment of chips or coolant. These are individual systems and components that are linked to form one complete system – a Central System.

A suitable system depends on the project requirements. This may be, for example, classical, rigid chip conveying systems (belt conveyors) or modern, flexible, cross-linked bulk goods transportation systems (pumping or suction technology). halls and machine layout, machining processes, materials, chip volume and length of conveying path, but also the degree of automation, flexibility, environmental stipulations, disposal costs and budgets are a selection of criteria which our planning experts take into consideration in the design of a suitable system.

KNOLL can offer you all required services, from planning to production to start-up, all from a single source. KNOLL customer service ensures safe and economical operation. Additionally if the system is to be expanded or reconfigured, KNOLL is the right partner for you.

Systems with Pump Technology
A conveyor and filter system with pump technology is suitable for fully-automatic chip transport from several processing machines to a central filter system. Cooling lubricant serves as the carrier medium.

Systems with Extraction Technology
A conveyor system with extraction technology is suitable for fully-automatic chip transport from several processing machines to a central collection point. Room air serves as the carrier medium.

Systems with Collecting Conveyors
Collecting conveyor systems are required to bring metal chips and small parts from production to a central collection point.

Systems for Chip Processing
The treatment of chips has many advantages: they are dry and separated by type, so disposal costs are low. Depending on the material, it may even be possible to sell the chips.

KNOLL Scraper Belt Chip Conveyor K

 

For the transport  of short broken metal chips  and small pieces from machine tools. Installation possible as individual conveyor or interlinked system. Suitable for short steel  chips, needle chips (e.g. brass), cast chips  and cast abrasion, dry processing and wet processing.

Function

A scraper belt continuously moves the material to be conveyed on the container bottom to the discharge point. This continuous scraper belt consists of two chain strands connected through conveying bars. The scraper belt drive is carried out with a three­ phase geared motor with overload protection. Optional limit switch or monitoring of belt tracking. Also pre-­cleaning of the coolant / lubricant is possible with wet processing.

KURT CarvLock® CTHDL Manual Cluster Towers


Kurt® Workholding’s CarvLock® CTHDL manual cluster towers are designed for use with mid-size and larger CNC machining centers, including horizontal and vertical machining centers with a fourth axis and/or indexable tables. These manually operated, eight station vise towers are capable of producing up to 7,460 lbs. of clamping force at just 70 ft-lbs. of torque. They provide exceptional workpiece immobility while dampening cutter-induced vibration. Ductile iron column construction ensures strength, rigidity, and long term accuracy.

A self-adjusting holding block on either the front jaw or back jaw allows for easy clamping of same or differently-sized parts. To provide faster operation, an adjustable pre-load feature reduces the number of handle turns required for opening and closing the clamping stations.

With eighteen CTHDL models available, with 4” or 6” jaws, it’s easy to find the right manual cluster tower for your unique workholding needs. Order the CarvLock® CTHDL cluster tower your application requires, or contact Kurt Workholding for more information.

See individual product listings for additional information and specifications. All models are protected by Kurt’s Lifetime Iron Clad Warranty.
