Intelligent pump control
Published:  17 January, 2019

WANNER reports it has introduced intelligent pump control for its Hydra-Cell pumps that it claims will generate significant savings while improving machined part quality.

High pressure coolant pumps are traditionally set to accommodate the tool in the carousel with the largest coolant flow requirement. When tools with smaller orifices are employed, the unneeded coolant is returned to the supply tank through a bypass valve. This system is wasteful of power, heats up the coolant unnecessarily and reduces the life of the pump itself.

The company says Hydra-Cell Intelligent Pump control (patent pending) is an open loop system without pressure gauges and complex electrical feedback loops and it delivers just the right flow of coolant to maintain the required system pressure, regardless of tool size.
