Environmentally friendly Water Eater slashes coolant disposal costs.

For smaller manufacturing companies the cost and hassle of disposing coolant is an expensive exercise. Unlike larger companies they frequently lack the space, the capital or the technical personnel to utilise the exotic recycling or treatment capabilities. However, a piece of equipment known as the Water Eater provides an innovative and effective solution to the issue. Designed on the principal that only a tiny proportion of the waste product is actual coolant, the Water Eater uses evaporation to remove the water component from the coolant thereby drastically reducing the amount of waste product that needs to be disposed of. “Typically Read the full article…

A quality vise is the key to getting the greatest potential from your machine tool.

The old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ is true for many things in life and applies equally to CNC workholding solutions and machine tool accessories. “A machine tool is only as good as the workholding capability that you are using. If you can’t hold a part rigidly or squarely, you will not be able to realise the full potential of your machine tool,” said Paul Fowler, Managing Director of Dimac. Dimac has over 30 years experience in CNC machine tool accessories and are agents for many highly respected brands such as Cooljet, Reven and Royal. The company Read the full article…
