The challenge

The Stork production facility in Sneek has 17 machine tools that employ metalworking fluids. Part of these fluids are released as mist or fumes during the machining process.

In order to protect the health of the personnel, to create a safe working environment and to prolong the service life of the machines and equipment, it is important to extract these oil mists.

Every machine tool installed at Stork was equipped with an individual filter system installed on top of the machine. The installation of a separate system on each machine tool made it difficult to ensure the continuity of the air flow, and filter maintenance was very time-consuming.
