Machine tool: Intelligent immersible pumps

Are you looking to optimise your machine tool, filtration, part washing and temperature control systems?

Precise pump speed and control are essential for machining systems. Even the smallest fluctuation in flow or pressure could reduce the quality of end-products, increase the wear on tools and slow down production. Intelligent pump solutions from Grundfos can integrate with your overall system, monitor the hydraulic system and automatically adjust to different duty points to run more efficiently. This reduces life-cycle and energy costs, while extending the life of your systems. 

With Grundfos iSOLUTIONS you can:

  • Increase reliability with automatic pump speed adjustments based on demand
  • Optimise full-speed operations, while maintaining full control
  • Reduce heat transfers to coolants and energy consumption
  • Reduce energy and operational costs
  • Reduce capital costs (smaller pumps and fewer components)
  • Integrate your intelligent pumps with the overall machine tool control system
  • Achieve a fully automated system that supports Industry 4.0

Expertly tailored to your needs

When you choose Grundfos iSOLUTIONS, our machining experts will work with you to tailor your pumps to the precise requirements of your specific machining systems. You get a single point of contact for the design, installation and maintenance of your system.

The technical deep dive

Choose the right pump size to make your system more efficient

With numerous valves and fitting points, pressure loss is rampant in many machine tool systems. By automatically calculating the pressure loss in the machine, perfectly fitting your demands and running at power limit, you can downsize and even reduce your number of pumps, optimising your entire system.

Run at power limit

The ‘Run at power limit’ feature on your intelligent Grundfos pump gives the pump the possibility to run the motor at full power if needed, while maintaining efficient overload protection. ‘Run at power limit’ means the duty-point range can be extended, as the frequency converter allows full power output through the entire pump curve.

Why Grundfos iSOLUTIONS for your installation?

An intelligent pump that’s fully integrated into your equipment can make the entire machine tool system more streamlined and your operations more efficient. Our machining experts can help you tailor a machine tool system that precisely supports real-time system variations and pressure fluctuations. With unique experience and knowledge in the entire network surrounding a machine tool system, we can help you achieve a long-lasting, optimised system that keeps life-cycle and energy costs down, while extending tool wear life. That’s machining done the intelligent way.
