Learn How to Achieve True ROI in Your Machine Shop

You might be tempted to arrive at your total cost of coolant (TCC) by multiplying coolant costs by usage — but that approach only tells a small part of the story. That’s why we’re exploring the hidden costs of CNC coolant in our latest white paper.

New FullShop™ Model is Optimized for the World’s Most Common Shop Sizes

We’re excited to announce we’re expanding our FullShop™ product line to accommodate the most common shop sizes. Our new model, the FS40, is optimized for the most common sizes and enables these CNC shops to unlock the same benefits at a lower price point.

Unlock Hidden Opportunity Costs While Maximizing Your Labor The Case for Automation

Concluding our blog series on how automated coolant delivery systems can improve your return on investment (ROI), we turn now to opportunity costs.

Cut Costs By Keeping Coolant Concentrations Within the Correct Range

In the majority of machine shops, coolant delivery to CNC machines is still a manual operation. Machinists, however, tend to err on the side of using higher-than-necessary coolant concentrations, driving up what you spend on coolant each year.

What Every Extra Minute of Spindle Activity Means For Your Bottom Line

How many machine shops spend 10 to 20 minutes a day per CNC machine, distracted by coolant tending at the start, end or during a shift? What if these shops could totally eliminate this wasted time and run their spindles more?

How to Reduce Machine Stoppages and Improve ROI

Machine stoppages due to low or flooded CNC coolant are a costly source of waste and downtime. We know this from experience. One way to put an end to these stoppages is to automate your coolant delivery process, increasing your profit. One more checklist to look at is not the answer.

Are Those Thousands of Minutes Invested in CNC Machine Coolant Top-Offs Free?

Continuing our series on how automatic coolant refill systems maximize your ROI, we now turn to simple cost per fill events. The reality is, it costs you something each time someone has to monitor, mix and fill a CNC machine. And when something goes wrong, you have to pay someone to fix it. All these costs add up—especially if you have multiple CNC machines in your shop running over several shifts.
