Engis will launch its Megasonic cooling system at IMTS. The system uses ultrasonic cooling nozzles to reduce coolant consumption, increase stock removal efficiency, extend grinding wheel life and provide enhanced surface finish characteristics.

Engis will launch its Megasonic cooling system at IMTS. The system uses ultrasonic cooling nozzles to reduce coolant consumption, increase stock removal efficiency, extend grinding wheel life and provide enhanced surface finish characteristics.

The system of ultrasonic nozzles uses the Megasonic Coolant method invented by Professor Suzuki Kiyoshi of the Nippon Institute of Technology. Efficient grinding operations require an adequate amount of grinding fluid to be supplied to the grinding point, but the air barrier caused by the rotating grinding wheel often reduces the amount of coolant actually reaching the cutting face. The Megasonic Coolant method uses highly accelerated and focused coolant streams produced by a vibration transducer of megahertz order placed on the nozzle. The resulting high megasonic permeability and vibration acceleration removes chips and superabrasive grains from the cutting face.
