Chungsuk is dedicated to MTA production. The new "baby" is born to succeed, according to Ole Gerlich, Sales Development Director, Machining Industry.

For the last five months MTA production has mainly been covered by sub-suppliers. With CSK, a full production line is in place and ready. More than 100 people participated in the opening ceremony, including representatives from the major machine tool countries like Germany, Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, and India.

The new MTA pump
The new, "dirty" MTA product is a single-stage immersible pump, and it will be the widest and the best of its kind on the market.

Even though the innovative edge was cost and speed, the development team at Grundfos was also able to differentiate the MTA from the competition on major points like a unique, patented Vortex-preventer, ensuring superior suction capability, a special sealing system to improve pump efficiency and specially designed high-efficiency motors, surpassing even the highest requirements to energy savings like Europe's IE3 from the new EUP directive.

Why this new pump? / A step into the "dirty side"
Grundfos is a major player and even market leader of pumps to the machine tool industry on the "clean side" of the application, where coolant and lubrication pumps are important sub-segments. The MTA is specially designed for mounting on tanks and pumping the used coolant and lubricants containing particles and abrasive media. It is the first step into what Grundfos calls the "dirty side" and will soon be expanded with a multistage range. This will then make Grundfos a full-line supplier within dirty media.

"The motivation to develop the new pump and offer it to the market was driven by both internal and external factors," explains Ole Gerlich. "To expand and protect our leadership it was a must to extend our range to include pump solutions for the dirty side. Our customers have requested this for some time, so it was really top priority for us.

"Already at this early stage we see clear indications that the new product will become a success," he continues. "The first few thousand pumps have been sold and delivered, and agreements have been made with some of the largest and most important machine tool OEMs."
