Midaco's New CNC Machine Tool Fan for Cleaning Chips and Coolant

Regular maintenance of your CNC machine tool is essential to your shop's productivity and investment. One of the most important aspects of CNC machine maintenance is the consistent chip removal and coolant cleaning during production to avoid damage to equipment and lowered product quality. Blowing and cleaning chips and coolant is now a CONTROLLED process.

Automatically clean off your parts and fixtures UNATTENDED between machining cycles.

The MCB5 Midaco Fan eliminates the need to pause production for maintenance and uses your machine’s control to clean “unattended” between machining cycles while keeping the chips and coolant INSIDE the machine tool. Midaco's automated CNC chip cleaning fan frees your operator or robot from time spent on chip cleaning tasks and reduces idle time in the machining process.

Keep the chips and coolant INSIDE the machine tool. Change cleared off parts OUTSIDE the machining center on a Midaco Pallet Changer WHILE the spindle is cutting. Keep your VMC working for YOU!

The Midaco Fan is engineered to provide the best results possible when it comes to removing machined chips and coolant from your table, workpiece or fixture. This innovative machine tool chip removal fan is the perfect compliment to any Midaco Pallet Changer System on your VMC. By eliminating unnecessary idle time due to part clean up and part changeover, you will get the most out of your machining center on both big and small, short run or production jobs.
