OUR COOLANT FILLING MACHINE EXPLAINED

The more you know about FlexxCool, the more you will appreciate the benefits that our automated coolant filling machine offers. We answer some of the most frequently asked questions here and would welcome the opportunity to talk with you further.

Due to the complexity of concentrate %, a manual machine sump top-up is very time-consuming. A proper top-up or fill requires measuring the current sump concentrate % and volume of mixture needed. These variables are then calculated to discover the necessary water and concentrate mix to be added to the sump. Because this is required per machine, manually doing this at every fill or top-up would be a full-time job.

Because each machine consumes coolant differently, The FlexxCool system’s UTC process defines a unique and specific top-up % required to maintain a target concentrate %. This means each machine can have a different top-up %.

Our two fail-safe features prevent overflows at the sump before they happen. No more alerts after the fact, walking into a flood.

By removing the manual process, spills are prevented because there is no human interaction with coolant.

Our system was designed with lights out machining in mind. 24-hour machining is only truly possible with an automated coolant delivery system like FlexxCool. With FlexxCool, there is no risk of a sump running dry midway through the overnight shift.

Although each shop is different (size, shifts, machines), every FlexxCool customer recovers valuable machining-hours by automating a manual process like coolant management. One FlexxCool customer recovered 30-hours per week previously wasted on their coolant process. This time was refocused on machining parts and increasing machine uptime.

The system can provide raw data on all coolant functions—for example, Overall Concentrate, Water and Coolant Consumption for the shop and per machine. If there is a specific element you would like data on, The FlexxCool system can recover data on any metric needed.

The FlexxCool centralized system was designed to easily fit a drum or tote (or combination) under the system. Concentrate change out requires no special lifts or effort.
