Title: METHOD FOR DISCHARGING CHIPS FROM MACHINE TOOL AND CHIP DISCHARGE DEVICE
Abstract:
A machine tool (1) is provided with a processing chamber (S), a mist collector (17), and a chip container (14). Clean air discharged from a discharge opening in the mist collector (17) is supplied into the processing chamber (S) using an discharge air supply duct (19). A guiding air flow for discharging chips is generated inside the processing chamber (S) by air inside the processing chamber (S) being suctioned from a suction opening in the mist collector (17) via a suction duct (18). Clean air discharged from the discharge opening in the mist collector (17) is resupplied to the inside of the processing chamber (S) after chips generated inside the processing chamber (S) are dropped into the chip container (14) and oil mist included in the air inside the processing chamber (S) is removed using the mist collector (17).
