Quantum control

The Quantum™ is designed for complex operations and gives you reliable, digital control of the MQL. When used with a Unist Spindle Kit, you get the full benefits of dual-channel, through-spindle MQL.

Since the Quantum™ supports up to 6 independent outputs, it’s the perfect choice when adding external spray nozzles or an air blow-off to your through-spindle application.

The Quantum™ can be controlled through discrete signals, but the real benefit comes when controlling it through the RS-232 interface. This provides a nearly unlimited number of MQL rates. You can specify the exact amount of lubricant and air required when you need it in your CNC program. The Quantum™ allows you to specify the fluid output down to a fraction of a drop to fine-tune machining processes, accurately measure and control usage, and share settings between multiple machines.

  • digital output

    Quantify your lubrication with digitally controlled output.

  • Control the Quantum™ directly from your CNC program.

  • Dual use nozzle performs as both lubricant output and air blow-off to clear chips.

  • Setup, store, and select multiple jobs with the Quantum’s™ simple user interface.

  • Active monitoring with alerts informs operators when critical issues arise.

  • Use both dual-channel through-spindle and external nozzles in complex cutting operations

  • Optimum through-spindle MQL delivery when used with a Unist Spindle Kit

Keeping you machining with intelligent, precision application technology.

With the Quantum™, you electronically control air and fluid flow, air blow-off, and 6 independent outputs.

Through-spindle MQL can eliminate the need for external nozzles which can get in the way and require positioning. With proper design, fluid passages can be placed to deliver the MQL output precisely where needed for each specific tool, eliminating the need for operator adjustments.

Active monitoring of flow, pressure and fluid level ensures you know when critical situations arise, allowing you to react before you destroy valuable tools or ruin your work piece.
