FAMA pneumatic suction systems are designed for the transfer and movement of metal chips directly from the production points (machine tools) to a centralized collection point, continuously and automatically.
FAMA pneumatic suction systems are designed for the continuous and automatic transfer and handling of metal swarf directly from the production points (machine tools) to a centralized collection point. The system consists of a pneumatic circuit that uses air speed to suck up swarf and move it along the conveyor lines to the point where the swarf is stored or treated.
The advantages of such a system, compared to traditional centralized systems or their absence, are many: all the problems related to swarf handling are eliminated, including the use of one or more operators and one or more forklifts, the risk of impacts during transport, the commitment of personnel to clean the scattered chip and oil, the size of the bins in the warehouse, both full and empty.
Together with logistical improvements, a centralised pneumatic suction system also leads to undoubted improvements in the working conditions of operators, environmental conditions and the safety of personnel, as operators do not enter in contact with swarf and the coolant contained in it any more.
Civil works of excavation for the realization of trenches are not required (as for the buried conveyors) and it is at any time possible to extend the system if an increase of production requires the implementation of new machines.
In a similar way, if a machine has to be moved for production reasons, moving a branching is simple and economical.

THE DATA IN kg/h IS APPROXIMATE AND IN ANY CASE DEPENDS ON THE DENSITY OF THE SWARF, THE SHAPE, THE OIL CONTENT AND THE TYPE OF COOLANT. THE DENSITY DATA CONSIDERED ARE HYPOTHETICAL, BASED ON AN EXPERIMENTAL AVERAGE OF THE DATA IN OUR POSSESSION.
The system is operated by a vacuum pump, protected by a safety filter, which provides enough energy to suction up the oil-soaked swarf.
Each machine will have a sub-machine group, abbreviated to GSM. It is a special basin, placed at the base of the evacuator, which accumulates the wet swarf for a certain amount of time. A level sensor reserves the GSM for cleaning and queues it for the suction process. In its turn, the GSM dosing screw activates and conveys the swarf to the suction point. The material runs along the line up to the separator, where the swarf precipitates and is stored inside a container or goes to be centrifuged.
If a machine tool processes two materials alternately, it is possible to install two conveyor lines that convey the material to the two dedicated centrifuges
If more materials are processed in a factory, the transport will be managed by a revolver (for management of 2 to 5 materials)
The system works with a short swarf, so where necessary, the GSM is integrated with a shredder
