EXAIR's new Air Stik window blow-off, available from CompressAir Technologies , keeps the window of CNC machines clear of coolant and chips so the part and process is visible at all times.
The compact design delivers a uniform sheet of air that blows down the surface of the window. The operator can then make decisions affecting the part and process, resulting in faster machine set up and increased productivity. Tool damage and unnecessary downtime can be reduced.
The Air Stik ejects a small amount of compressed air through a thin slotted nozzle. This quiet, laminar sheet of high velocity air immediately pulls in surrounding air that sweeps down the surface of the window.
A strong peel and stick adhesive permanently bonds the aluminium Air Stik to the window of the machine. Compressed air inlets are provided on each end for ease of piping.
A shutoff valve with attached bulkhead fitting (for closed machines) or magnetic base (for open top machines) gives the operator infinite control of the air velocity so it can be increased when there is a high volume of coolant hitting the window.
The Air Stik window blow-off comes complete with all components necessary for mounting and piping. There are no moving parts to wear out or mechanical wiper blades to scratch the window surface.
