Pictured below is a MistBuster® installed on a Tree VMC 840 CNC Machine Tool. These mist collectors from Air Quality Engineering are ideal for collection of coolant mist and smoke generated by today’s CNC machining centers.
Designed to be compact and highly efficient, they feature a wide variety of installation options for maximum flexibility, while reducing airborne concentrations and feature variable speed controllers for precise control over airflow and subsequent negative pressure over the machine tool enclosure.
Tree Machine Tool Company was founded in Racine, Wisconsin, in 1926 as Tree Tool & Die Works, by Charles Tree. Today, Tree CNC knee mills are known worldwide for outstanding rigidity, durability and performance, at prices the average small shop owner can afford.
Early on, Charles Tree amassed 17 patents for improving the function and operation of small, general-purpose milling machines. By the 1950s, Tree had introduced its first milling machine which quickly earned a reputation as an exceptionally rigid, accurate machine, with features tool makers wanted, but couldn’t find elsewhere.
In 1978, Tree introduced its first CNC product – the Journeyman(r) 200, 2-axis knee mill. This machine changed the way small shops looked at CNC because it programmed itself from easily entered part descriptions.
In recent years, Tree has expanded its product line with new vertical machining centers and turning centers that offer maximum power, speed and rigidity at prices the average job shop can afford.
