A specialty machine shop was very satisfied with their current machining fluid but was open to seeing if Fortech Products could improve their overall performance and lower the bottom line cost. The shop machines a wide variety of steels, including A2, D2, 4140, Stainless as well as hot and cold rolled steels.
Fortech Products introduced the shop to TechKool FT3010E, a newly developed proprietary semi-synthetic fluid. The business case supporting the performance characteristics and the projected spend of the fluid enticed the machine shop to run a trial.
Being multi-metal compatible, the shop was able to push the limits of the fluid in many scenarios, while maintaining the concentrations fairly low at 5-7% in each of their ~100 gal sumps.
The trial surpassed expectations. TechKool FT3010E met both challenges successfully with profitable results. The shop has improved performance with cost savings and will be transferring all CNC’s to TechKool FT3010E.
“I’ve seen our tool life almost double, which means less trips to my toolbox. There’s minimal foam, no odor, and I can see my parts easier through the window. FT 3010E saves us money, and will be charged into all of our CNC’s as they become available.” – CNC Operator
