“Energy efficiency will be one of the most important selling points in the future,” says Sven Kreusel, Head of Global Sales. Meanwhile, Datron high-frequency (HF) spindles, for example, can manage micrometer-level precision and speeds of up to 60,000 1/min with a maximum power of 8 kW. This is about one-third of the energy required by conventional spindles. In addition, the company's engineers have set about eliminating energy guzzling machine tool peripherals. According to Kreusel, this mainly involved replacing hydraulics with vacuum technology, and using efficient, minimum-quantity cooling lubrication, which is less cost-intensive and takes up less space than conventional cooling lubricant systems. According to Kreusel, it is still necessary to raise awareness of energy efficiency among users. “They are often pleasantly surprised when we then show them how they can save between 15,000 and 22,000 euros in energy costs per year,” says the sales manager.
