SCM Italy is showcasing their innovative Greenchuck line at EMO Hannover 2017. Thanks to the special internal lubrication system, the solution allows the use of cutting oil instead of the traditional emulsion, mixing an airflow coming from the machine tool with the cutting oil stored in an integral tank in the chuck. The mix, made up of 99 percent air and the 1 percent cutting oil, is said to guarantee a higher level of operational efficiency, a low environmental impact, substantial cost savings and practically no disposal costs. Furthermore, the system deploys MQL technology even on CNC machines that are not MQL-equipped.
Innovative, eco-friendly internal lubrication system
The mixture of air and a small amount of cutting oil instead of the traditional emulsion ensures that the Greenchuck system is inexpensive and environmentally friendly, according to SCM.
