Sep 26, 2019


A CNC machining company needed a dust collector to handle the dust from their 12 horizontal grinding mills. The company, located in northwestern Ohio, provides CNC machining services. Moreover, they produce a variety of metal parts for different industries. However, the company faced a grinder mill machine dust problem in the midst of a busy schedule.

The company’s grinding machines produce a large amount of dust. But this dust was migrating into the other departments. Furthermore, it caused quality control issues and premature wearing of machining.

The company contacted Cardinal Air Design to help them solve their grinding dust problem. The job had some special requirements, and the company needed a dust collector designed to meet their needs. Cardinal Air Design recommended an Imperial Systems CMAXX dust collector for the company’s grinder mill machine dust.


This CMAXX dust collector on a grinder mill machine received custom paint to match the outside of their building.Solution:

Cardinal Air Design created a dust collection system based around a CMAXX CM006 dust and fume collector. The six-cartridge collector also has a set of HEPA after-filters. The cartridge filters and after-filters provide extremely high-efficiency filtration for fine grinding dust.

The company also requested a dust collector to fit in with the exterior of their building. Imperial Systems powder coated the collector, including the supports and the collection drum, to match the building exterior.

Cardinal Air Design provided ductwork design and installation of the system. The company received a complete turnkey system. As soon as the installation was complete, they could turn it on and start controlling their dust problem.


Feedback on the Grinder Mill Machine Dust Collection

The company reports being very satisfied with Imperial Systems’ dust collector. They are also satisfied with Cardinal Air Design’s service and system design. The CMAXX dust collector with HEPA after-filters provides the high-efficiency filtration they need.

The matching powder coat on the Imperial Systems CMAXX is durable. But it also gives a clean, polished appearance to the building exterior. The company’s new system works without problems, and the grinder mill machine dust is under control.
