At Hörnlein Umformtechnik in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany, two AFS 6000 purifying systems were installed at punching machines. The oil mist is extracted directly out of the punching cabinet. Therefore the suction pipes were installed and connected directly to the machine housing. In case of maintenance of the punching machine, the suction pipes can be dismounted easily.

After the punching process, the finished parts are quite hot. Hence the adherent oil vaporizes into the production hall when the parts leave the machine. Via an extraction hood the oil vapor is collected and filtered and purified in the AFS unit.
