Dimac Tooling offers the integration of one of the most intelligent spin window solutions, the Pioneer rotary wiper spin window to provide greater visibility into CNC machine operations.
Having a clear view into the actual machining process in CNC machines without being impacted by coolant or chips can optimise a manufacturer’s processes and improve working ergonomics and productivity.
Clear visibility, especially during intensive coolant use can increase workers’ productivity by reducing the time taken for setup and prove-out.
Modern CNC machines prevent the door being opened during operation for safety reasons, which makes it difficult for operators to view operations and cutting conditions.
Despite high quality coating of the machine windows and modern machine tool design, workers still need a ‘windscreen wiper’, a spin window or rotary wiper to clean the window by centrifugal forces and enable good visibility.
Pioneer rotary wiper spin windows are designed to provide visibility into machines with coolant system pressures of up to 80 bar, such as those found on through-tool coolant delivery systems. These spin windows come standard with carbon-coated glass for resistance to chip activity, resulting in low maintenance cost.
A spinning disk is mounted on the machine’s side, giving clear vision to the process by its high rotational speed (2000 rpm). The window features a specially designed base and disc ring for built-in chip protection.
The compressed air-driven spin windows are suitable for all types of CNC milling machines, lathes and machining centres, both in original equipment and for retrofitting. Simple installation and optimum maintenance due to modular design reduce the costs.
Normal installation requires no holes in the machine tool window and increases the life of polycarbonate safety panels. A high-tech adhesive sheet is used for bonding the spin window to the desired position.
Safety is ensured since the workers do not need to bypass machine interlocks. Operators can view the process while remaining behind the safety window of the machine.
