Blind holes kept clean with Ringler machine
The Ringler suction extraction devices, available in the UK from M Buttkereit Ltd, can be supplied to cover a wide range of machine-shop and production engineering requirements. The product development has very much been based upon user-related feedback, with a wide range of product models complemented by an even more extensive range of accessories which have been geared to application specific requirements.
A typical example of their innovative design solutions is a patented suction and blast nozzle which has been purpose designed for cleaning-up workpieces that incorporate blind hole drilling or machining. Within the nozzle suction tube, a centrally located air jet orifice is integrated which discharges a blast of air at positive pressure. This dislodges any swarf, chips or coolant fluid build-up within blind holes, while at the same time safely extracting the debris under suction to prevent contamination of the atmosphere or adjacent working environment.

The positive air blast requires a separate feed from the workshop compressed air supply and is controlled by a built-in pushbutton control on the nozzle. The suction extraction is switched on/off by a balancer or hose suspension limit switch.

The suction and blast nozzle accessory can be fitted to most of the models in the Ringler range. These include both dry and wet-dry suction extraction units, designed for the effective removal of general machining residues, with some models also suited to Ex rated installations. Materials such as graphite, asbestos and plastics can be successfully handled, together with toxic or other problematic dusts. Over 50 model variations are available, covering both mobile and static (machine or floor mounted) options with optional power ratings, storage tank capacity and filtration media available to cover the machining or processing operations involved.
