iVision industrial vacuum cleaners were chosen by KIMLA, a Poland-based company specializing in the production of CNC machines and fiber laser cutters, which is also engaged in processing, such as cutting and milling, aluminum.
In this case, the vacuum cleaners selected by KIMLA are from the FLAT TABLE line, used for proper suction of aluminum shavings. These vacuum cleaners were installed on CNC machines that process aluminum sheets, later used by a major Dutch company to build luxury yachts.
The process of working with aluminum
The aluminum processing is a multifaceted process that goes through several stages, including:
- MATERIAL SELECTION
Initially, you have to proceed with material selection, choosing the most suitable types of aluminum -with variations in alloy and thickness- for the specific applications required.
- CNC TECHNOLOGY
Next, the material goes through cutting and milling operations, using precision machinery with CNC technology. During this stage, it is important to maintain high standards of precision to ensure the best result.
Effective extraction of aluminum residue is essential to preserve maximum precision during the machining process.
This takes on even greater importance for our client KIMLA, considering that the material is intended for the construction of luxury yachts, where every detail counts to achieve finished products of extraordinary quality and prestige.
- BENDING, DRILLING OR OTHER OPERATIONS
These operations are performed to give the product the desired shape.
- APPLICATIONS OF SURFACE FINISHES
Finally, it is often necessary to apply surface finishes, such as painting or anodizing, to improve the corrosion resistance and aesthetic appearance of the finished product.
Given the complexity of this process, the company relied on iVision Vacuum to handle the collection and vacuum of aluminum residue generated by the CNC machines that process aluminum. This step is critical to ensure product quality, but also to improve operator well-being by creating a clean and safe work environment.
KIMLA company’s suction needs
The company in question, engaged in aluminum processing, has special needs when it comes to vacuuming using CNC machines. In the processing stage, aluminum waste can create problems, both for the cleanliness of the work environment and the health of workers. To address these challenges, it is critical to use specialized vacuum solutions designed to efficiently collect aluminum chips generated while using a CNC machine.
The vacuum cleaners in iVision Vacuum’s FLAT TABLE line, which are equipped with an overhead arm to connect the hose directly to the electro spindle performing the machining, help prevent the suction hose from obstructing the work of the machine.
The vacuum cleaners in this line are designed to keep the work area clean and safe, preventing the accumulation of metal debris and thus helping to preserve product quality and ensure a healthy working environment.
FLAT TABLE line features
The FLAT TABLE line is the result of direct expertise in the field of industrial mechanics, where a powerful, reliable suction system is needed to safely remove chips generated during the machining process.
FLAT TABLE vacuum cleaners, with a side channel blower, are ideal for 3-axis, horizontal or vertical CNC machines that require accurate and efficient suction of the waste produced to ensure maximum precision during the machining process and a final product free of imperfections. In addition, they can be equipped with patented industry-specific accessories. These include, for example, the functional overhead arm, supplied to KIMLA to meet its industrial suction needs when operating the CNC machine on aluminum sheets.
THE FLATE TABLE LINE PRODUCTS
Flat Table Line
INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER FOR CHIP ON CNC ROUTER.The FLAT TABLE 320 model is used in the world of machining with 3-axis CNC machines with high dust/chip production. Designed specifically for industrial purposes, this model is equipped with powerful motors and advanced performing filtration system. Its vacuum and airflow characteristics make it ideal for heavy dust extraction. The use of a pre-filter-cyclone enables it to capture more than 90% of the sucked material before it reaches the main filter, thus preventing clogging and greatly extending its service life.

INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANERS FOR CHIP ON CNC ROUTERThe vacuum cleaners of the FLAT TABLE 160 line are the best performing models in the iVision range and are ideal for collecting chips in large CNC machines. Thanks to the powerful side channel blowers and the large chip collector (160lt), the FLAT TABLE 160 line vacuum cleaners are ideal for the maintenance and cleaning of large machining centers with high production of scraps, shavings and dust. The scraps generated by the cutters on 3-axis numerical control machines require industrial extraction of chips and dust as efficiently as possible, to ensure that the router works accurately and correctly. The integration of accessories specifically made for this sector, such as the innovative aerial arm, allows iVision to be able to provide the right product for each application. The use of highly technological components combined with meticulous care and attention to design characterize all iVision industrial vacuum cleaners.
