Rotoclear S3 Spin Window – Product video


Introduction


As the official UK distributor for Rotoclear machine tool vision systems, we are delighted to offer the Rotoclear S3 – the world’s only self-cleaning spinning window.

Providing a clear view of your milling, grinding and other metal-forming processes, even in the toughest of machining conditions, the S3 Spin Window is an approved system, designed to keep the inspection window of a machine tool clear for continuous monitoring of the manufacturing process.

Incorporating a transparent rotating disc that repels coolant and swarf, the device is typically attached to the inside of the machine enclosure door. It is operated by a fully integrated motor and equipped with automatic emergency shut-off, overload safety and soft start.

Installation is quick and straightforward, using mounting bolts on a PCD or by an optional self-adhesive flange, following the instructions provided. For new-build machines, installation can be completed during manufacture. Where remote monitoring is required, we also offer a bolt-on camera option.

Additional Information


The Rotoclear S3 Spin Window provides a clear view of the production process - even in the toughest machining conditions. The spinning window is an approved system, designed to keep the inspection window clean in order to allow continuous monitoring of the machining process. The system is suitable for all kinds of metal cutting machines, including turning centres, milling machines, machining centres and test stands.

A transparent rotating disc repels coolant and swarf from the window surface. This allows the operator to always have a clear view of the machining area. The unit is compliant with current safety legislation. An integrated air purge keeps the system pressurised to avoid the ingress of cutting fluid and always operational. The spin window is driven by a fully integrated direct-drive motor, which is automatically controlled using pre-set parameters for standard operation through the control unit. Overload safety, emergency shut-off and soft start are all executed automatically and ensure safely controlled operation.

The device is typically attached to the inside of the machine enclosure door at eye level. The inspection window can either be fixed by mounting bolts on a PCD or by an optional adhesive flange that is fixed by a cover and does not involve perforating the machine tool window. Both methods can be carried out by untrained staff following our specially developed procedures for maximum reliability. Alternatively, the installation can be completed during the machine’s manufacture in the OEM’s facility. For milling machines, it is recommended to use the bolt-on flange version, whereas the adhesive version is appropriate for turning centre applications.

The capability of the standard Rotoclear S3 Spin Window can be enhanced by incorporating a “bolt-on” Wi-Fi camera option, for wireless monitoring of the machine tool.
