Jorgensen Conveyor and Filtration Solutions has entered into a partnership with Will-Fill, a manufacturer of fully automatic coolant monitoring and managing systems.
The strategic partnership allows Jorgensen to offer customers complete coolant management systems, such as the company’s recently launched PermaClean, that provide both filtering and measuring capabilities for an all-in-one solution, the company says.
With the addition of the Will-Fill add-on device, a coolant system can provide trouble-free care of metalworking emulsion by combining automatic measurement and analysis of fluid with faultless filling, permanent conditioning, and timely reporting, the company says. The Will-Fill components are linked to a high-performance control unit, allowing the device to regulate and adjust the fluid level and the fluid condition automatically. Additionally, it can alert users when attention is necessary via wi-fi or LAN network capability.
Will-Fill can be combined with Jorgensen’s filtration options, such as PermaClean. Coolant tanks equipped with PermaClean eliminate tank sludge, significantly reducing the labor required for frequent tank cleaning. Plus, when combined with the cyclonic filtration option and a Will-Fill, the system is fully automated and nearly maintenance-free.
Will-Fill units are field retrofittable and can be added to almost any machine tool coolant tank. The units are machine-tool brand agnostic.
“At Jorgensen, our goal is to provide customers with systems that make coolant management an invisible process within their machining operations,” said Karl Kleppek, president and COO at Jorgensen. “The combination of PermaClean and Will-Fill to our FlexFiltration systems portfolio uniquely positions us to deliver complete, fully automated, maintenance-free conveyor and filtration solutions-allowing users to return their focus to machining.”
Related Glossary Terms
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
Suspension of one liquid in another, such as oil in water.
Any manufacturing process in which metal is processed or machined such that the workpiece is given a new shape. Broadly defined, the term includes processes such as design and layout, heat-treating, material handling and inspection.
