This solution can be mounted on all HSMU units on Kongsberg XP machines.
In some cases, when milling small details, the chip suction force can be too strong and lift or remove finished pieces.
As a solution to this problem we have a “reduction valve”. Reduced suction is achieved by a number of drilled holes around an aluminium tube that is activated by turning a plastic lock ring.
The operation is very simple and straight forward; you only turn the plastic ring enough to open or lock the valve. The amount of false air can easily be adjusted to what is required for the actual job.
The retrofit kits come complete with valve and new vacuum hoses between router and gallow.
Supported by the included installation guide it should be possible for an operator with minimum technical skills to do the installation. Hence, no need for an Esko engineer for this upgrade.
