One of the strengths of Müller’s high-pressure units is without doubt the adaptability of the high-pressure solution to customers’ specific requirements. To this end, in recent years Müller has worked with and for leading machine constructors as part of its system partnerships to develop special high-pressure construction kits. In comparison with conventional solutions on the market, they can be implemented even in the smallest spaces because of their compact design, which also makes them ideal for confined installation situations. This claim has always guided Müller’s development, and over the course of this year, the market leader and pioneer concerning compact high-pressure for sliding headstock automatic lathes will create innovations.
If, for instance, it is found that a large series is to be produced with always the same tools, in the same material and so on, then thanks to these special construction kits, configuring the perfect high-pressure solution for the highly efficient manufacture of this series can be achieved easily and relatively quickly.

However, although high-pressure dimensioning is relatively easy thanks to these construction kits, the question still arises in certain cases whether it would not be easier if there were one combiloop or combistream for everything instead of setting up high-pressure systems individually.
The answer to this question is: yes, it is possible to have one high-pressure solution.
If, for instance, one were to take for a sliding headstock lathe a combined high-pressure system combistream with an integrated chip conveyor and bottom cleaning plus high-pressure pump with regulating pump technology plus maintenance-free automatic filter in full flow and bypass flow, plus specific priming of the low-pressure pump from the machine tank etc., then the result would be a machine on which very many different materials could run safely and reliably: from normal steel, brass and stainless steel to a highly alloyed material such as titanium or other medical steel.
However, this tremendous flexibility comes at quite a price. Because with regard to configuration level, components and technologies, a high-pressure system such as this would be at the top end of the range.
This flexibility is extremely useful, sensible and financially worthwhile for job shops, for instance, that do not produce large series and have to changeover frequently because of small series or very special customer requests and therefore also often have to deal with very different requirements: “This high-quality design will enable customers to benefit from the energy-saving potential of the pump for a very long time, plus there is only a very low heat input into the cooling medium, less electricity is required when the radial piston pump is working at an optimum, and an automatic filter requires no additional consumables”, explains Jürgen Glaser, Marketing Director DACH at Müller.
It’s a known fact: Whether precisely fitting high pressure or a high-pressure solution for maximum flexibility with regard to changing machining scenarios, when configuring the high pressure it’s worth looking at the details and thinking through the options and the actual requirements. Because only then can clever investment decisions be made over the long term. Müller’s marketing experts will be pleased to assist and advise you at any time, and help you to find the right solutions – even for the smallest spatial situations thanks to the compact constructions.
