Presses for drainage and compression of shavings

During machining (turning, milling, drilling) of metals and plastics, significant amounts of residual material accumulate over time. The large volume of swarf balls occupies valuable storage space and makes handling difficult. The often still adhering coolants, emulsions or oil make their disposal time-consuming and expensive.

With the help of the WEIMA C.200 chip press, the drainage and compression of loose shavings is possible in only one automated work step.

The best thing about it: The compact machine can be placed directly alongside the machining center at the swarf conveyor. The volume of residual material is significantly reduced. Pressed-out coolant can be recycled.

The challenge: Voluminous mountains of shavings

Overfilled tilting containers. Chips and coolants on the floor of the production hall. Annoyed employees. In many metalworking companies, this all too often still describes everyday life on the production lines. WEIMA has developed an economical solution to this problem.

Compression of the shavings up to 1:10 possible

The compact discs have a diameter of 200 mm and have only a very low residual moisture after draining and compressing. Pressed-out liquids can be returned to the cooling or lubrication circuits. Depending on the material, a volume reduction by a factor of 10 can be achieved.
