Automated sheet metal coil lubrication systems are designed for use on most coil processing applications using evaporable industrial lubricants on parts where degreasing is to be avoided.
Shear-Form Machine Tools in Coventry, UK has introduced French ACMA Oleosynthese automated sheet metal coil lubrication systems They consist of single or MultiSpray heads with supports, fully or semi automated control units and lubricant suction diaphragm or piston pumps.
The systems are designed for use on most coil processing applications using evaporable industrial lubricants on parts where degreasing is to be avoided as well asapplying high performance industrial lubricants or standard industrial lubricants.
A feature of this system is the range of spray heads available including standard mist less spray nozzles for lubricants with a wide range of viscosities and where the air and oil flow rates are controlled manually and the MultiSpray range of mist less spray heads remotely controlled for multi applications and which can be fixed individually or as banks of 1 – 11 heads on ACMA UNIRAIL sections allowing lubrication of strip from 50mm – 2m.
MultiSpray heads have spraying capabilities ranging from 0.3mm – 350mm wide.
The MP-A spray head is equipped with an automatic air spray cut-off system to reduce air consumption by as much as 80%.
Control systems including Pulstronicoil RaD, which is a semi automated electro-pneumatic management control designed for the remote control of the lubrication parameters.
Parameters include the following.
* Spray head selection.
* Timing for upper and lower flow rate control.
* Flow rate measurement.
* SprayControl – an automated electro-pneumatic management control with built in memory for different spray programs and the elimination of operator intervention.
Shear-Form also offers a wide range of ACMA chlorine free, bio-degradable, water washable, mist free industrial lubricants for metal forming and fabrication industries.
The ACMA systems can be applied to punching, stamping, fine blanking and cambering of many ferrous and non-ferrous steels including mild and stainless steels and aluminium.
