Maschinenbau Silberhorn GmbH produces innovative, customized special-purpose equipment and specializes in cleaning equipment. Silberhorn is committed to meeting customer needs, safeguarding employees and protecting the environment. Through its exhibits at EMO Hannover 2017, the company aims to show that precision machining also needs clean tools. It has thus developed the Tool Cleaner and is now unveiling this to visitors in Hannover.
All processes, whether drilling, milling or turning, don’t just leave their mark on the workpiece - they also leave chips and other soiling on the tools. The new Tool Cleaner first uses spray cleaning to reliably remove cooling lubricants, oil, grease, chips, abraded material and other soiling from precision tools and then uses compressed air to dry them. With a cycle time of just three to four minutes, the tools are soon ready to use again. One special feature of the Tool Cleaner is the option to also clean SK30, SK40 and SK50 tool holders. Baskets (550×150×200 millimeters) can also be filled with up to 15 kilograms of tools for cleaning. The Tool Cleaner itself is extremely flexible and can be transported easily to a new site thanks to its compact size, 200 kg weight and four wheels.
