How BlueSwarf Dashboards™ Save Energy

Last Updated: Jul 21, 2011 05:14PM EDT

The chart above is a typical torque and horsepower curve of a machining center spindle. Spindles are designed to provide low end torque and power for rough machining at slower speeds. As speeds increase the power and energy consumed is reduced. One Kilowatt (kW) of energy is consumed for each 1.34 unit of horsepower required. In this example, at 6000 RPM, 22.4 kW are consumed. At 10,000 RPM, only 13.4 kW are needed, a 40% reduction. BlueSwarf technology allows tools to run at the highest possible RPM, thus reducing the energy required. In addition, BlueSwarf enables deeper, more productive cuts reducing the energy consumed per part produced.
