Advanced Saw Blades Ready for the Global Market

https://korean-machinery.com///inquirySaw blades are the most traditional and essential tools for cutt ing materials to required dimensions. In particular, Tungsten Carbide-Tipped (TCT) circular saw blades are capable of operating at much higher temperatures (Max. 400 째C) and cutt ing at a much higher surface speed (max. 350 M/min).

201610mm_page_034_03These blades are commonly used for cutt ing non-ferrous alloys, but have gained signifi cant popularity for ferrous metal cutt ing applications in the past 20 years.

Since its establishment in 1999, Power Saw has supplied quality cutt ing tools to local and overseas markets. In 2005, the company developed high-quality TCT saw blades.

Specialization in the Export of OEM and Quality Aftermarket A/C Parts

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryEver since its foundation in 2002, KOR.E International has been specializing in the export of OEM and quality aftermarket A/C parts. It started out with just one loyal overseas customer, but through its strength and perseverance to advance into overseas markets, KOR.E has continued to grow successfully as a global export company by earning trust from customers.

201610mm_page_033_07

KOR.E focuses on supplying the A/C auto parts industry with condensers, radiators, compressors, evaporators, HVAC units, complete A/C systems, and other spare parts.

KOR.E has been able to set itself apart from other trading companies with its commitment to customer service. It takes pride in having close relationships with all of its customers and being able to understand and predict their needs.

Functions of Major Components of Car Air-Conditioning Systems
201610mm_page_033_14A condenser is required to cool down the hot refrigerant coming from a compressor, so it is located at the front of a car where it can be exposed to the maximum amount of air. As the hot refrigerant fl ows into the condenser, it dissipates heat by fl owing through a system of ultra-thin tubes that are held together by fi ns.

KOR.E manufactures Parallel Flow (PF) condensers that have been proven more eff ective and reliable than serpentine or plate and fi n-type condensers. It carries over 1,000 models of condensers and has the ability to customize a condenser as customers want. All the processes are in accordance with ISO9001, TS16949 and ISO14001.

201610mm_page_033_03A compressor is a key part of a car’s airconditioning system and is usually driven by the engine via a V-belt or ribbed V-belt.

As low-pressure liquid refrigerant from the evaporator fl ows into the compressor, the liquid is compressed into high pressure gas and sent to the condenser. These units compress liquid refrigerant into gas while keeping the refrigerant fl owing through the airconditioning system. Compressors are also fi lled with special lubricating oil, and some of this oil circulates with the refrigerant through the air-conditioning system, keeping all of the parts lubricated.

201610mm_page_033_11A radiator is located at the front of a car’s engine, just behind the condenser, and is the most important component of the cooling module because it keeps the engine from overheating.

201610mm_page_033_13The radiator is made up of a radiator core, along with two plastic side tanks, and all the necessary connections and att achments. The radiator core is made up of a network of fi ns and tubes that run either horizontally or vertically, depending on the application.
