Fluid Management: Key cornerstones for ensuring successful implementation

Fluid management involves all services associated with the use of coolants and other fluids, such as hydraulic fluid or slideway oil. In addition to the use of fluids, it is also important to analyse and optimise the fluid process and other associated services, such as procuring and disposing of coolants. Long-term costs can only be reduced when all of the influences on the fluid process are taken into account.

Coolant performance and status: Key values for a coolant during use

To ensure consistent high performance and minimise interactionwith employees, coolants need to be continuously monitored. Having defined parameters is of particular importance: They provide information on whether the emulsion quality issatisfactory or if a change is needed. If the fact that important coolant values are within the critical range is noticed too late, the consequences can be expensive.

Coolants: product prices versus process costs

In order to be and remain competitive as a company, not only do the products have to be of the highest quality, but the costs must be perfectly co-ordinated with the production process.

Tap water: Why the water quality is so important for the functionality of the coolant

Water quality can have a profound influence on the functionality of coolants in the application state. After all, in emulsions the water content is as high as 90%, while in solutions, the water content is 95%. For this reason, certain minimum requirements with respect to tap water must be met.

Health and safety in production machining — productively implemented using the T-O-P-model

Health and safety in production machining — productively implemented using the T-O-P-model

The term "Health and Safety" should be understood to be far-reaching, especially in production machining. This is because modern health and safety is preventative and does not wait for damage or events to occur before modifications or improvements are made. People are not just protected from the work itself, but rather against all dangers that arise as a result of the task.

What you need to know about the GHS Regulation

The GHS Regulation comes into effect on 1 June. The Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of the United Nations (UN) is a standard international system for the classification and labelling of chemicals, providing guidelines for packaging and safety data sheets. Member states of the UN worked with industry representatives and other interested delegations to develop this system.
