Advanced Chemical Solutions was invited to discuss coolants that would not only perform well but also not have an odor, foam or cause dermatitis.
Mark Pierson from ACS with closely with Keith Kish, the Director of Manufacturing Engineering at General Die Casters. According to Keith, "I was looking for an economical coolant that would not stink, foam or have skin issues for our employees. Advanced Chemical Solutions evaluated our facility and provided Nano Tech 6800 for testing."
General Die Casters has a good number of CNC machines from Brother, Mori Seiki, Chiron, Takisowa, DMC, Kitako, and a good number Haas machines. Taking good care of their employees is important to the the company. Recently, several employees celebrated 20 years of service at the company. One of them was Anderson Grant, the first shift operator “In most companies, it’s very rare to see employees who reach 20 years of employment. At General Die Casters, it is common to see people reach 35 years at the company. We have a work culture where there is mutual respect and support of one another. When one of us succeeds, we all succeed”, says Anderson.
Having odor free coolant that didn't cause dermatitis is part of keeping employee morale high. According to Keith, "Nano Tech 6800 is absolutely the best coolant we have ever used in our machines. No Monday morning odor, coolant stays fresh and clean."
But what about tool life?
Keith tells us "This coolant has dramatically improved our work environment helping to keep our machines cleaner and improving our tool life."
