Automatic mechanical chain cleaner for an improved lifetime of Küsters chains.
- Longer chain lifetime.
- Less unplanned shutdowns because of chain breakage.
- Lower power needed for main drives.
- Saving steel belt and heating plates.
- Less use of lubrication oil.
The ChainMAX is a mechanical cleaning device for chains used for Küsters presses. A rotating cleaning unit moves crosswise the chains. The system is fully automatic and starts and stops together with the press.
By keeping chains clean, friction will be lower resulting in a longer chain lifetime, lower power on the main drive, and lower oil consumption for lubrication. A clean chain will improve press performance. Today more than 15 Küsters presses are equipped with one or two ChainMAX systems.
