Nilfisk-Advance America Highlights Heavy-Duty Machines at Metalworking Show

MALVERN, Pa., August 21, 2006-They'll be cleaning up in the Windy City.

Nilfisk-Advance America will showcase a range of its powerful industrial vacuums at the largest manufacturing and technology show in North America, the 26th International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2006). Featuring more than 1,200 exhibiting companies in the metalworking industries, IMTS (McCormick Place Complex, Chicago) will attract more than 85,000 buyers and sellers from 80 countries.

In response to diverse workplace safety and sanitation needs, Nilfisk will showcase the Oil Vac 220 and IW 2050, designed specifically for the extended metalworking industries, and the newly launched SL Vacs, appropriate for multiple industrial applications.

The "workhorse" CFM Oil Vac 220 retrieves metal shavings, lubricants, and coolants, filters out debris, then pumps the purified fluids directly into the reservoir tank - all without leaving the sump. In addition, this vacuum performs all of these tasks simultaneously - cutting the time and effort it takes to reclaim fluids by 50%. The CFM Oil Vac line also includes the 440 model, which features a greater collection capacity, and the Oil 675, which is the largest model, and is ideal for cleanup of lathes, milling machines, and cutting and grinding machines.

The IW 2050 vacuum features a multi-stage filtration system designed to trap MWF aerosols, making it ideal for the metal removal process, changeout, deep machine sump cleaning, and general plant maintenance. With powerful dual motors and a 13-gallon tank capacity, its accessories are resistant to oil and water-based fluids. Standard accessories include a ten-foot hose, crevice nozzle, steel wand, floor tool, and utility tool.

Designed to meet the twin concerns of cost and performance, the SL Vacs feature solid construction and strong performance at an affordable price, making them a cost-effective solution for many companies in a range of industries. Lightweight and highly maneuverable, the SL Vacs feature rear swiveling wheels with locking brakes and a unique release lever, which lowers the wheeled collection container for fast and easy disposal of collected debris.
