Units for internal and external Minimial Quantity Lubrication (MQL)
The innovative technology of the SKF LubriLean DigitalSuper makes it possible to use minimal quantity lubrication (MQL) for a wide range of cutting applications.
The unit’s innovative generation of aerosol, combined with a powerful integrated control unit, constantly provides an optimal supply of oil for the cutting process. Even in case of unfavourable pressure ratios caused by the application (deep-hole drilling) or by small diameter cooling ducts.
The LubriLean DigitalSuper stands out due to its performance as well as for its very user-friendly operation.
SKF LubriLean can replace the centralized cooling system in many machining processes. It assists customers in reducing costs of cooling system operation and maintenance, enables higher metal-cutting speed, increases the machining surface quality, extends the tool’s service life and lowers the passive impact on the environment.
A PROFIBUS or PROFINET interface conforming to HPC specifications permits easy system integration.
The active Bypass-Control (BPC) has been developed for advanced drilling tasks such as deep-hole drilling with small tool diameters (<5 mm).
