Automated Coolant Management

If you’re still dumping buckets of coolant into your CNC machines, there’s a better way. The FullShop™ Automated Coolant Management System monitors coolant usage at the machine tool sump and automatically replenishes the coolant before it runs low. These easy-to-install turnkey system consists of a centralized pumping station, controller, distribution manifolds and a small level sensor that drops into any machine tool sump. With its compact footprint and modular design, our FS120 model can automate shops with 15 to 120 CNC machines—delivering up to 5,760 gallons of coolant a day. You can also select our smaller FS40 model, which can automate shops with up to 40 CNC machines.

Lights-Out CNC Machining

Unattended or lights-out operation of a machine tool can transform the economics of your machine shop. Instead of operating one or two shifts a day with a shop full of operators, you can run high-volume jobs unattended overnight and keep your spindles spinning 24/7. With bar stock feeders, robotics and take-away conveyors in common use, the biggest barrier to unattended CNC machining has been the need to replenish coolant in unattended machines. In the majority of shops, coolant management is still a manual operation. And without operators to keep the coolant sumps filled, most machine tools simply won’t run around the clock. The FullShop™ Automated Coolant Management System solves that problem—by automatically delivering properly mixed coolant to multiple machine tools without any human intervention. No man with a bucket required.
