Why should machines be cleaned?

  • Optical appearance; a clean machine is an indicator for a clean production and high Quality
  • Cleaning the functional components:
    • Tool magazine, tool holders
    • Clamp devices
    • Energy cable chains
    • Sensor system, e.g. reference points, wear detection
    • Monitoring systems
    • Viewing guards
  • Improvement of hygiene:
    • Avoidance of bacterial growth, high temperature also leads to a disinfection
    • Protection of the cooling lubricant
    • Protection of the employees
  • Precision processing requires a clean environment

Minimum lubricated machines generate - particularly on cast parts or forgings - high graphit dust which extremely soils the machine.
