How to install an extractor to SmartBench v1.3.

The importance of using an effective extractor

The extractor is an essential part of the SmartBench system, as it removes swarf during the machining process. This is necessary to make sure the job runs smoothly and safely. 

Build up of swarf on the workpiece can result in high levels of friction and heat at the cutting site. To prevent this, it is critical that swarf is removed from the cutting site during the job, using effective extraction.

If appropriate extraction is not used, the build-up of swarf can force SmartBench out of position while it is cutting. This can cause job failure.

Connecting the extractor hose

The extractor hose connector is located at the underside of the Lower X Beam.

Connect the extractor power

There are two ways to connect your extractor to SmartBench. Click on links below to learn more.

Power via SmartBench 

You can only use this option if:

you are using a 120v and your extractor consumes less than 1.5 kW power.

you are using a 230v and your extractor consumes less than 2.9 kW power.

Follow the steps below to learn more.

Step 1: Check your extractor’s electrical specification

Firstly, look for the extractor power rating specified by the manufacturer, and make a note of it. This should be stated on the electrical specification label found on the extractor itself.

For example, the extractor shown here has a power rating of 1200 Watts. 

This is less than the stated power limit, and can therefore be powered via SmartBench.

Step 2: Connect mains supply for extractor to SmartBench 

Using the supplied cable, connect the mains supply to the extractor input on SmartBench Lower X Beam as shown in the image.

Step 3: Connect power lead to the output socket of SmartBench 

Use the extractor power lead provided in the Leg set box.

And connect your power lead to the output socket of SmartBench.

Step 4: Connect extractor to SmartBench 

Now connect your extractor to this extension lead.

Step 5: Controlling extractor from SmartBench

Switch on the mains power switch to “on” and now you can toggle extraction on and off from the highlighted icon. Click here to learn more about console operation of extractor.

Power via separate power outlet 

Use this option either:

  • your extractor consumes more than the power allowed, or

  • you want to operate your extraction manually then read from step 2.

Step 1: Check your extractor electrical specification

Firstly, look for the extractor power rating specified by the manufacturer, and make a note of it. This should be stated on the electrical specification label found on the extractor itself.

For example, the extractor shown here has a power rating of 3.6 kW. This is above the limit stated for it to be powered by SmartBench, and so must be powered externally.  

Step 2: Connect extractor to mains supply

Plug your extractor to an external power supply and whenever you are cutting any job on SmartBench your extraction has to be manually operated.
