AirBench has introduced a new blowdown station, the AirBench BD.
BD is designed as a self-contained cleaning station for the removal of swarf and coolant from machined parts. Parts are placed in the cleaning area, and blown down manually using an integral blowgun. Swarf and coolant are drawn into a bin in the base of the unit; a throwaway filter pad is used to remove most contaminants before returning air to the room.
The blowgun is operated via an integral pedal, which also activates the downwards suction. A polycarbonate screen is provided for operator protection.
No power supply is required; The unit is operated solely from compressed air.
BD can be located next to your machine tools, allowing operators to quickly and safely clean parts outside the machine enclosure.
