How do I use the SkyMill?
We recommend locating the SkyMill in the operator work area or a tool crib. Depending on the design of your area, one SkyMill can typically support 5-8 operators. Attaching the SkyMill to a belt is not recommended.
How many times can I sharpen a scraper?
As long as the operator does not notice deterioration in performance it is safe to continue reusing the scraper, typically up to 20 times.
How many SkyMills do I need?
This can be calculated depending on your annual scraper consumption and other assumptions based on your plant. As an example, if you use 200,000 scrapers per year:
2 shifts per day: 200k scrapers / 10 sharpens per scraper / 200 days used / 2 shifts / 5 operators per SkyMill x 2* = 20 SkyMills
3 shifts per day: 200k scrapers / 10 sharpens per scraper / 200 days used / 3 shifts / 5 operators per SkyMill x 2* = 14 SkyMills
*Assumes half of your SkyMills are in use and half in battery charging
How many scrapers do I need per operator?
An Ultem scraper generally lasts an operator a full shift if it was just re-sharpened.
How long does the battery last?
When fully charged, the battery system covers use for a minimum of 12 hours.
What is the service life of the SkyMill revolution?
2 years with daily use, similar to most professional power tooling.
How do I dispose of the residue dust and scraper stubs?
The residue dust and scraper stubs are non-toxic and have no special disposal requirements that may apply for other types of plastics.
