Reducing energy and lubricants in the automotive industry
In mechanical engineering, maximum precision is required for the final machining. Therefore in order to ensure the quality of the workpieces, it is important that as little frictional heat as possible is created and the unavoidable rash is removed. BINE project information brochure (03/2013) “Energy efficient finishing in mechanical engineering” presents a grinding process for the automotive industry that requires minimum amounts of lubricants and coolants. In comparison with the previously standard flood cooling, the new process halves the energy consumption.
