Drivetrain Components Manufacturer Reduces Coolant Spending by $186K with Master Fluid Solutions ©2020 Master Fluid Solutions. Master Fluid Solutions®, TRIM® and MicroSol® are registered trademarks of Master Chemical Corporation d/b/a Master Fluid Solutions. 2020-06-18
A drivetrain components manufacturer, specializing in automotive torque converters, primarily engages in turning
applications with steel alloy. It operates three large central coolant systems: one at 30,000 gallons, one at 20,000 gallons,
and one at 10,000 gallons. There are 100, 50, and 30 machines on each system, respectively. Its primary customers are
large automotive manufacturers across the United States.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS THE NUMBERS
In addition to the age-old cost reduction
challenges, the components manufacturer
was also faced with sump life and service life
issues on its machines. Its incumbent fluid
resulted in too much foam, smoke in the air,
and residue all over the machines.
The company decided it was time to reevaluate
its entire fluid program to tackle
these issues and reduce the amount of
metalworking fluid it used. Any fluid it chose
would need to be operator-friendly, as well
as have a long life in the sump. Changing out
the central systems can shut down the entire
plant because of the size and number of
machines connected to them.
The components manufacturer brought in three different metalworking fluid
providers to run 60-day tests on its systems. Master Fluid Solutions’ TRIM®
SC620 performed well in the test but also offered significant cost savings in
the long run.
TRIM® SC620 is a low-foam, semisynthetic coolant that is ideal for high-speed
milling and turning applications. It provides a long service life, long sump
life, and is low-maintenance, which is critical for central systems like the one
running at the components manufacturer’s facility.
Master Fluid Solutions also provided tramp oil removal systems, and
continuously conducts weekly coolant sampling and laboratory evaluations.
Based on the results of these reports, Master Fluid Solutions adjusts the
coolant. Master Fluid Solutions includes this maintenance as a value-add to
help its customers better manage their coolant usage and spending.
After switching over to TRIM® SC620, the
components manufacturer saw a massive
decrease in coolant spending, going from
$386,000 to $200,000 annually, a 48%
savings. Additionally, the company saw
a 22% increase in tool life, an improved
surface finish on the final product, and clean
machines, without foaming or smoke in the
air.
Thanks to Master Fluid Solutions, the
components manufacturer has achieved its
goal of cost savings and improved both the
work environment and the finished product.
• $186,000 saved annually
• 48% reduction in coolant spending
• 22% increase in tool life

RBC de Mexico Vastly Improves Processes, Cuts Costs with Master Fluid Solutions RBC de Mexico Vastly Improves Processes,
Cuts Costs with Master Fluid Solutions

RBC de Mexico, RBC Bearings’ Reynosa plant, primarily machines steel and stainless steel for aerospace, automotive, and
industrial customers. The location also handles some aluminum and harder to machine metals, and works on thousands
of different parts and models. RBC de Mexico is a major turning facility owned by RBC Bearings and operates 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, for 340 days out of the year, requiring long-lasting, durable coolant.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
As is the case with a lot of metalworking shops, RBC de
Mexico wanted to extend sump life, cut coolant costs, and
properly maintain its coolant. Several years ago, the company
struggled with dirty sumps, rust issues, and rancid coolant
odors. The sump was full of bacteria and a health risk to
workers. RBC de Mexico wanted a better-quality coolant at
a reasonable price, as its incumbent provider was overpriced
and not effective.
However, the engineering team met with some resistance
internally when wanting to bring in new vendors to test
different fluids. Some were skeptical that a new coolant
could make a difference, and the engineering team had their
work cut out, not only to prove that there would be ROI from
switching to a new coolant, but also that a new vendor could
help improve RBC de Mexico’s processes.
RBC de Mexico began an active search for a new coolant.
Ultimately, the plant brought in Master Fluid Solutions. TRIM®
MicroSol® 585XT was chosen for its machining operations,
and Master Fluid Solutions also provided actionable
recommendations on how to improve conditions on the floor,
like installing skimmers on each machine to remove tramp
oil and using water filters and smog hogs. Master Fluid
Solutions impressed the team at RBC de Mexico with its deep
knowledge of metalworking, and was one of the few vendors
willing to travel to Reynosa to tour the plant, demonstrating the
company’s commitment to supporting RBC de Mexico during
and after the transition.
After almost two years of using TRIM® MicroSol® 585XT, RBC
de Mexico has achieved approximately $150,000 in overall
savings, including what it has saved in coolant costs due to the
fluid lasting longer in the sump.
However, the real value has come in the form of process
improvements that have led to a much cleaner facility. The
sumps are cleaner than ever before, meaning less bacteria
and less health risks for the workers. Installing the skimmers
has reduced the amount of tramp oil in the sumps, drastically
reducing the smoke that would accumulate over the machines
and increasing the life of the sumps — and smog hogs take
care of the rest.
RBC de Mexico has had such good results partnering with
Master Fluid Solutions that it now plans to implement a
coolant recycling program to save even more money. For the
Reynosa plant, not only were they able to reduce costs and
improve their operations, but they also found a trusted partner
in Master Fluid Solutions to guide them through the process.
“The service and product knowledge from Master Fluid
Solutions is far superior than anything we had received
from any of the other companies we had talked to. Their
patience and determination helped everything fall into
place.”

Wilson Tool Finds the Formula for Worker Health & Safety with Master Fluid Solutions Wilson Tool Finds the Formula for Worker
Health & Safety with Master Fluid Solutions
Global custom tooling company Wilson Tool International provides a complete line of tooling products
for the additive, tableting, stamping, bending, and punching industries. From the louvers on the back of a
microwave to the back panel of a computer server, if a company needs something to stamp out different
forms, Wilson Tool likely makes it.
THE CHALLENGE
THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Wilson Tool provides parts to a wide variety of industries,
from automotive to information technology. Parts have to be
delivered to specifications, with very low tolerance for error.
Nothing can be delivered with scratches or dents, and fluids
play a large role in ensuring that Wilson Tool’s products
meet its customers’ exacting standards.
To meet its different metalworking application needs, Wilson
Tool purchases three different fluids from Master Fluid
Solutions that can be adapted to different applications.
TRIM® OGR 263 is the straight oil solution that Wilson
Tool uses, along with TRIM® C270 for grinding and TRIM®
MicroSol® 690XT.
Additionally, worker health and safety can’t be overstated.
Employees spend a lot of time in contact with the
different fluids for milling, cutting, and other metalworking
applications. Regardless of whether the fluid is oil-based,
water-based, or pure oil, it needs to minimize dermatitis
cases.
Wilson Tool has dramatically reduced coolant waste and
dermatitis cases on its production floor. The company uses
8,000-gallon tanks to run coolant through its three systems
and the coolant lasts at least seven years before it needs
to be cleaned out and recharged. The most recent system
Wilson Tool cleaned out had been running smoothly for 17
years. Going so long between system cleanouts means
less waste is created which equates to a savings of roughly
$35,000 every time it can be skipped.
With 400 people at its St. Paul, Minnesota facility, it’s very
rare that even a single case of dermatitis is reported. While
coolant cost and longevity is important, healthy employees
have a major effect on the bottom line, too.

Aerospace Components Supplier Resolves Contamination using Master Fluid Solutions Aerospace Components Supplier Resolves
Contamination using Master Fluid Solutions
As a leading supplier of aerospace components, contamination is a serious problem. One UK-based
supplier that performs milling, turning, drilling, and tapping operations at its facility had to face such
an issue. This supplier machines aerospace-grade aluminum, with 19 machines in total consisting of
mills, machining centers, and lathes. The aerospace industry requires a precision operation, while also
minimizing downtime for the machines.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
The aerospace components supplier encountered a problem controlling
bacterial contamination in its metalworking fluid. This meant it had to conduct
regular machine cleans of approximately two to three machines per month. It
took half a day to clean and refill the machines and the lost machine time cost
$76 per hour.
The existing metalworking fluid also periodically caused machining issues.
The machines would tap oversize holes, which meant those component parts
would have to be completely scrapped. Each scrapped component resulted in
a $2,330 loss.
Weary of losing more money
and productivity, the aerospace
components supplier agreed to a
six-week trial of TRIM® E715, run at
6% to 10% concentration. TRIM E715
is a universal soluble oil that requires
minimal maintenance and is suitable
for machining aluminum, steel and
nickel alloys, as well as cast iron and
yellow metals.
The trial of TRIM E715 resolved the bacterial
contamination issue completely, eliminating the need
for costly cleanouts, a saving of nearly $9,325 per year.
Resolving bacterial contamination also removed the bad
odors that operators frequently complained about. All
machines have since been switched over to TRIM E715.
TRIM E715 also fixed the issue with oversized holes that
resulted in scrapped parts. The aerospace components
supplier has had no reports of issues since the conversion.
And, as a bonus, several operators who suffered from
dermatitis with the former metalworking fluid have had
their skin clear up since the switch to TRIM E715.

Aerospace Components Manufacturer Reduces Consumption with Master Fluid Solutions Aerospace Components Manufacturer Reduces
Consumption with Master Fluid Solutions
Even a company with decades in the industry will occasionally struggle with its cutting fluid consumption.
A large UK-based aerospace components manufacturer that performs milling, turning, and grinding
operations experienced this firsthand. Their location houses over 100 machines that work with a range of
materials, including aluminum, steel, titanium, and Inconel. Along with achieving performance objectives,
they also needed to meet local and internal health, safety, and environmental standards.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Poor coolant stability resulted in a costly and time-consuming regime of
biocide additions to the majority of the machine sumps at their manufacturing
site. Without the biocide additions, the coolant would not meet regulatory
health, safety, and environmental requirements or internal health and safety
standards. The components manufacturer set a coolant life expectation of
18 months as part of the planned maintenance clean-out process, but the
biocide was necessary to reach that target.
Additionally, machine operators did not like the existing coolant; it emitted a
bad odor.
To deal with this challenge, the
components manufacturer actively
sought out a product to test in its
machines to eliminate the need
for additives and improve operator
acceptance. That product was TRIM®
MicroSol® 590XT, an environmentallyfriendly,
semisynthetic, microemulsion
metalworking fluid.
A six-month test run of TRIM MicroSol 590XT proved that
no biocide additions were needed to meet the company’s
coolant life expectancy standards. Additionally, using
TRIM MicroSol 590XT reduced consumption. The top-up
strength for its former coolant was 2%, and with TRIM
MicroSol 590XT, it was lowered to 1%.
Machine operators also accepted the new coolant
enthusiastically. They began asking for TRIM MicroSol
590XT to be put in all of their machines.
The company is currently in a planned conversion
process with the possibility of the remaining machines
moving to TRIM MicroSol 590XT. They’re also looking at
opportunities to supply TRIM products to the remaining
companies under their company umbrella.

A European manufacturer specializing in high-precision parts for the aerospace industry is a top-ranking
supplier to major companies, including Airbus. It operates eight different sites across the continent and
is dedicated to providing reliable, on-schedule production and innovative parts, as well as meeting the
comprehensive requirements of its customers.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Like all metalworking shops, aerospace part manufacturers
are constantly striving to produce quality parts in an
increasingly competitive environment. Lowering production
costs through reduced usage of consumable items, such
as cutting tools or increasing productivity through reduced
part production cycle time, are well known methods.
Master Fluid Solutions recommended that the aerospace
parts manufacturer run a trial of HyperSol 888NXT in
parallel with their incumbent metalworking fluid product.
HyperSol 888NXT is an innovative, water-soluble
metalworking fluid that Master Fluid Solutions specifically
designed for the aerospace industry, particularly for working
with harder alloys such as titanium, Inconel, and steel
alloys. HyperSol 888XT was installed into two CNC lathes
machining 35NCD16 steel alloy.
For four months, the aerospace parts manufacturer used
HyperSol 888NXT for its steel alloy machining and turning
applications in two machines. It proved to be a huge
success; tool life increased 234%, while running at a higher
speed and much lower top up concentration. HyperSol
888NXT also produced no foam or odor, an added bonus
for employees.
Based on the company using HyperSol 888NXT in just
these two machines for a one year period, it would be able
to decrease spending on metalworking fluid by 7.6%. Due
to increased tool life and productivity gains, it would save
an additional 20.2% or $69,900 in costs. For the highprecision
aerospace parts manufacturer, using HyperSol
888NXT proved to be the solution it needed to increase tool
life.
THE NUMBERS
• 234% increase in tool life
• 7.6% reduction in fluid spending over one
year
• 20.2% or $69,900 yearly savings in overall
costs for just two machines

Nuclear Components Manufacturer Reduces Consumption by 30% with Master Fluid Solutions Nuclear Components Manufacturer Reduces
Consumption by 30% with Master Fluid Solutions
A nuclear components manufacturer produces a wide range of products, including microelectronic
hardware, radiation monitoring systems, and integrated instrumentation diagnostic systems. The
production facilities include everything needed for the full production cycle, from machine processing
and printed circuit board production to surface mounting, assembling, welding, and testing. Its primary
metalworking applications are milling, drilling, and turning of aluminum alloys and heat-resistant steel
alloys, across approximately 100 CNC machines.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
THE NUMBERS
The advanced nature of the nuclear components from the
manufacturer’s metalworking applications means tight
tolerance specifications. However, its existing coolant
exhibited poor washing properties, which led to flaws in
the finished product. The product also experienced short
sump life and high fluid consumption, which slowed down
production.
The nuclear components manufacturer agreed to a trial
of TRIM® MicroSol® 515 for its metalworking applications.
This coolant is a medium to high lubrication, semisynthetic
microemulsion coolant. TRIM MicroSol 515 is
ideal for working with mixed metals and aluminum alloys
and its translucent emulsion characteristics reduce carryoff
to lower costs.
The trial period of TRIM MicroSol 515 has been running
for two years. In that time, the nuclear components
manufacturer has doubled its sump life. Additionally,
metalworking fluid consumption has been reduced by
approximately 30% and the cost savings overall total 15%.
Buoyed by the success of this trial, the nuclear
components manufacturer plans to convert all its
machines to TRIM MicroSol 515.
The high quality of TRIM MicroSol 515, combined with
Master Fluid Solutions’ reputation and commitment to its
customers, has encouraged the company to expand its

THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Tool costs are a significant contributor to the overall
component cost, especially for titanium and Inconel
impellers. Tool life savings are vitally important to improve
the competitiveness of the manufacturer versus its rivals. The
manufacturer wanted to test a new coolant with the aim of
increasing tool life without decreasing machine productivity.
After meeting with representatives from Master Fluid
Solutions, the components manufacturer agreed to a trial
of HyperSol 888NXT. This new class of synthetic watersoluble
metalworking fluid was specifically designed
for machining the harder metal alloys typically used in
aerospace applications. As such, it was the obvious choice
for this manufacturer’s challenging requirements.
The trial of HyperSol 888NXT lasted four months in the
titanium impeller end milling application and one month in
the slot cutting application of forged aluminum PS3955.
By all accounts, the trial was a resounding success for the
components manufacturer. HyperSol 888NXT increased
tool life by 22% on the titanium milling application versus
a well-known, very high performance aerospace emulsion
product. Feedback from machine operators indicated that
it was also a much better product to work with due to its
superior cleanliness, lack of odor, and significantly lower
consumption.
Additionally, the components manufacturer achieved $5,683
annual savings per machine. The projected annual tool life
savings will be $93,808, and annual coolant concentrate
consumption savings are expected to be $17,450.
For the components manufacturer, using HyperSol 888NXT
not only greatly extends tool life, but also further reduces
overall costs by keeping machines and components cleaner,
and by reducing coolant concentrate consumption by 50%.

Aircraft Components Manufacturer Reduces Coolant Usage by 50% with Master Fluid Solutions Aircraft Components Manufacturer Reduces
Coolant Usage by 50% with Master Fluid Solutions
A U.S.-based aircraft components manufacturer that produces fuselages, pylons, nacelles, and wing elements for
commercial and defense aircraft needed to find ways to improve productivity in their plants and decrease costs. They
operate multiple facilities globally and provide critical parts to several well-known aircraft manufacturers.
THE CHALLENGE
THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
THE NUMBERS
The manufacturer’s existing coolant was
going rancid in a very short period of time.
Every two to three months, the coolant had
to be completely dumped and replaced. As
a result, each CNC machine required a twohour
shutdown for cleaning and recharging
to prevent clogged filters, foul odors, mist and
steam, and tool life failure. With their existing
coolant lifespan averaging three months, even
a minimal improvement of coolant life could
provide significant productivity gains and costs
savings.
The manufacturer decided it was time to
investigate new suppliers. It brought in
several companies, including Master Fluid
Solutions, to run a seven-month trial of different
products, including TRIM® MicroSol® 590XT.
This semisynthetic microemulsion coolant
is formulated specifically for aerospace
applications and uses the latest technology to
provide long life and protect sensitive alloys.
Because of these unique properties, MicroSol
590XT was able to improve sump life and last
longer in the manufacturer’s machines.
In addition, MicroSol 590XT’s existing
approvals from Airbus, Boeing, and other
aerospace manufacturers made it stand out
even more among the competition.
Due to the strong positive results from the
trials, Master Fluid Solutions was chosen as the
manufacturer’s supplier.
During the initial seven-month trial period, the manufacturer did not
have to swap out MicroSol 590XT from any of the test CNC machines.
In fact, once all 340 machines were charged with MicroSol 590XT,
they were able to use the coolant for 12 to 13 months without having
to clean out the sump, saving an impressive $500,000 in coolant
costs annually.
On top of the financial savings from not having to purchase and
replace coolant as often, the manufacturer also achieved additional
savings through increased productivity. Before, each machine had
to be taken offline to dump, clean, and recharge with coolant every
quarter, taking two hours per machine and causing a loss of 2,720
production hours each year. Using an industry standard burden rate
of $100 per hour, with MicroSol 590XT, the manufacturer is now
saving an additional $272,000 per year. Each machine cleanout
also required at least one maintenance employee for two hours at a
labor rate of $40 per hour. By reducing the need for frequent coolant
changes, they yielded an additional $108,000 in savings from labor
costs.
For the aircraft components manufacturer, not only did they cut
their coolant usage in half, they improved productivity by increasing
machine utilization, resulting in substantial cost savings.

Industrial Fluid Solutions Expands Customer Offerings with TRIM<sup>®</sup> MicroSol<sup>®</sup> Products Industrial Fluid Solutions Expands Customer
Offerings with TRIM® MicroSol® Products
Wisconsin-based Industrial Fluid Solutions is a metalworking fluid distributor and fluid maintenance
service provider that sells to CNC machine shops, die casting companies, mold makers, and heavy
equipment manufacturers. Their customers range from small metalworking shops to large equipment and
component suppliers in the midwest.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
When metalworking companies and manufacturers look
for industrial fluid, they generally take one of two positions:
either they want the best price, or they want the fluid that
offers the best performance. Most believe these qualities
are mutually exclusive.
Because many of IFS’s customers work in industries
like automotive and heavy equipment parts, their fluid
requirements are stringent. The products they use must
prevent corrosion, odors, foam, and dermatitis.
Industrial manufacturing companies throughout Wisconsin
and Illinois turn to IFS for fluid maintenance programs and
services. To meet the needs of their customers, IFS must
provide them with cutting fluids that not only work great,
but also eliminate specific complications like odor and tool
life issues — while still being cost-effective.
IFS began offering several products in the Master Fluid
Solutions’ TRIM® MicroSol® product line. These products
were formulated specifically to meet the needs of
modern manufacturing and have shown great results
in all industries. It allowed customers the ability to
machine both ferrous and non-ferrous metals at a price
point that worked for the customers. TRIM MicroSol’s
new technology increases sump and tool life, a definite
advantage for manufacturing facilities. Additionally, the
biostability and extreme pressure components allowed
it to be used in a variety of machining applications,
essentially replacing two products with a single solution.
For IFS, working with Master Fluid Solutions has provided
the support they need to offer customers both fluids and
services above and beyond their competition. Master
Fluid Solutions’ deep understanding of both customer and
distributor needs helps IFS consistently provide highquality
products for their customers’ unique applications.
In turn, IFS is able to build strong, long-lasting customer
relationships.
By switching from two products to one, along with
increased tool and sump life, IFS’s customers have seen
savings of up to 30% annually on coolant after switching
to the TRIM MicroSol product family. Additionally, IFS has
consistently seen Master Fluid Solutions’ products win
after testing in production, increasing customer loyalty
and driving additional revenue.

Signicast Improves Employee Morale with Master Fluid Solutions Signicast Improves Employee Morale
with Master Fluid Solutions
Signicast manufactures precision investment castings for a variety of industries, including firearms,
mining and oilfield, recreational vehicles, and aerospace. With three plants located in the United States
and three in Europe, Signicast can meet the needs of small to large runs of components for a wide range
of applications.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Biostability and customer service are the two main
factors that drive Signicast’s metalworking fluid purchases.
The fluid needs to avoid changing colors or developing
a bad smell, which can indicate the presence of harmful
bacteria or tramp oil and make for an unpleasant work
environment for employees. Signicast also wants to know
that its metalworking fluid provider will provide assistance
if needed.
Nonexistent customer service from a previous supplier
led Signicast to find a new provider. Its Milwaukee,
Wisconsin-area facility uses a 10,000 gallon system, and
the company needed to know that it would get technical
support when it had questions about managing its fluid.
After evaluating several metalworking fluid suppliers,
Signicast chose Master Fluid Solutions and its
TRIM® MicroSol® 585XT for its operations. TRIM
MicroSol 585XT does not require extra biocides or
fungicides to remain biostable. The District Sales Manager
from Master Fluid Solutions helped steer Signicast to the
correct fluid for its machines, was knowledgeable about
the product line and metalworking, and was confident that
the product would work.
TRIM® MicroSol® 585XT became part of Signicast’s overall
efforts to achieve longer tool life, and it certainly has
contributed to the initiative. The machines are cleaner and
do not have a brown sludge buildup, saving approximately
$16,000 per year in its main coolant system.
However, it’s Master Fluid Solutions’s customer service
that has really stood out to the company. When Signicast
has a question about how to improve its shop floor,
Master Fluid Solutions is there to provide information.
Master Fluid Solutions also sent in its own service
engineers to assist with discharge, clean, and recharge
(DCR) to ensure a proper, thorough and quick process.
Additionally, the biostability of TRIM MicroSol 585XT
has contributed to happier employees, who no longer
continually have to report problems with the fluid. This
takes the pressure off the Plant Engineer, who can focus
on proactively managing and maintaining equipment on
the shop floor and continue to reap the benefits of the
cost savings, turning that toward strategic initiatives.
“Master Fluid Solutions isn’t afraid to jump in and get
dirty. With them, it’s all about customer service.”
– Matthew Speier, Plant Engineer

Aerospace Manufacturer’s Holes Per Drill Soar with Master Fluid Solutions Aerospace Manufacturer’s Holes Per
Drill Soar with Master Fluid Solutions
At 30,000 feet, there’s no room for error. Aerospace companies have to meet that high standard
when they design, manufacture, and support products that keep airline passengers safe in flight.
One aerospace components manufacturer based in the Northeast focuses on aerospace propulsion
components, flight control components, and aero engine components — all of which require high quality
and precision to meet safety standards and specifications. The company machines a variety of alloys,
including low carbon, hardened steel, aluminum, titanium, and nickel, as well as stainless steel, using
drilling, reaming, tapping, milling, turning, and grinding operations.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
The aerospace components manufacturer could only
get six holes per drill on a small drill with its incumbent
coolant. This was not enough and led the company to
start searching for a new coolant that could yield more
holes per drill, as well as increase the life of its tools and
reject tramp oil.
Coolants used in the aerospace industry must meet the
demands of high-pressure, high-volume applications.
The aerospace components manufacturer began testing
TRIM® E925AE for these rigorous applications, as it
uses a proprietary lubricity package for a better surface
finish and longer tool life when machining aerospace
materials. TRIM® E925AE protects sensitive aluminum and
nonferrous alloys, and its soft fluid film protects chucks,
ways, and tool holders.
The test run of TRIM® E925AE was a resounding success
for the components manufacturer. TRIM® E925AE yielded
96 holes per drill, a 1500% increase. Additionally, part
finishes were excellent, and drilling and reaming sizes,
along with turning, milling, drilling, and reaming results
overall were very good. Tool life was extended, and TRIM®
E925AE rejected tramp oil well. The fluid ran clean in the
machine, leaving no residue.
For this aerospace company, using TRIM® E925AE has
allowed them to improve production and extend tool life.

Seeing flawless parts and dramatic results with
TRIM® MicroSol® 690XT premium microemulsion.
Experiencing huge savings in time and costs.
For more than 30 years Hy-Speed Machining has been
producing quality, precision-machined parts primarily for the
commercial and military aerospace industry.
They had tapping issues on their CNC and lathes– having to
program stops in order to manually add tapping fluid.
And to go from water soluble synthetic for aluminum to a
straight cutting oil for Inconel®, they had to stop production
and clean the machines to make the switch.
They ran a trial on MicroSol 690XT and found dramatic results.
They no longer needed to waste time switching from straight oil
to coolant to run different metals because the MicroSol 690XT
did it all– whether milling, turning, or tapping 6061 or 7075
aluminum, steel, 316 stainless, 17-4, 440C heat-treated stainless,
or Inconel.
“We ran some tapping tests,” General Manager Mike Mills, Sr.
notes. “We went from 2-56, 4-40, 6-32, to 8-32 form taps to tap
30 holes each in a block of 6061 aluminum– without any issues
or need for tapping fluid at all– same tap no changes in speeds
and feeds. Then “we tapped 17-4 stainless on the lathes with it
without any extra tapping fluid. MicroSol 690XT has increased
the life of our taps dramatically, decreased our machine downtime,
and improved our production rates.”
MicroSol 690XT provided impressive results from the start.
First, they ran a small, 100-piece Inconel job. Rather than having
to switch their cutoff tool every 5 pieces, they ran the whole job
without changing it. With the flat-bottom, carbide drill going
800 thousandths deep, they ran all the parts on one drill –
rather than changing the drill for every 10 pieces as in the past.
Mills says MicroSol 609XT proved to be “a dramatic improvement,
cutting is just incredible, and on that small job alone we
saved about $3,000 on tooling costs.“ And that’s just one job!
Additionally, with the switch to MicroSol 690XT, Mills mentions
that the floors and machines are free of sticky residue and the
operators have had no problems with dermatitis.
The switch “saves us a lot over a year,” says Mills. Hy-Speed
Machine continues to run strong with MicroSol 690XT and could
not be more impressed with the difference to their bottom line.
Peak your performance and profits with MicroSol 690XT.

TRIM® MicroSol® 690XT has produced
astonishing results for Hy-Speed Machining
Making a big difference to the bottom line.
Hy-Speed Machining, an Oregon job shop whose majority of
work is for the aerospace industry, runs aluminum along with
lots of tough-to-machine Inconel® and other aerospace alloys.
Having to stop their CNC machines to add tapping fluid to cut
challenging metals was costing them a lot of money—
both
in production time and tapping fluid. With a successful trial,
they changed the whole shop over to MicroSol 690XT with
impressive results.
CNC programmer Mike Mills, Jr. has been amazed at the
difference in production and huge cost savings since their
switch to premium semisynthetic MicroSol 690XT.
Mills sites the new coolant’s performance with a recent job
cutting Inconel, “Since we switched to the MicroSol 690XT, we
were able to increase our surface footage, our speed rates, our
chip loads, and our tool life. We literally get up to six times the
tool life that we were getting with the former coolant. On this
one job, we went from 12 minutes per part down to four and
one-half minutes—with a tenth of the coolant cost.
“With this Inconel job,” he continues, “we use a $450 drill.
Before, we were going through four to five of them on the run
of 150 parts. With the MicroSol 690XT, we use ONE drill for
the entire run and it’s still good to run more parts! We definitely
have cut our tool and coolant costs down, sped the run time
up... we are looking at saving thousands of dollars on this job.”
That is just one example of the dramatic results they see with
MicroSol 690XT day in and day out.
“It has really changed our world here at Hy-Speed Machining, it
has been a great success for us,” adds Mike. “MicroSol 690XT has
helped our bottom line tremendously; with the savings on coolant,
tooling costs, the time it took to switch out tools, and the faster run
times, we’ll see savings of hundreds of thousands per year.
It’s incredible.”

Additional significant savings were realized by eliminating the need for costly additives
to reduce bacteria and foam levels. C270 reduced oil mist, kept the work environment
cleaner, improved part cleanliness for process gauging, and increased operator
acceptance. Now crankshaft and camshaft production is running smooth with C270.
When a world leader in automotive manufacturing
had a problem, TRIM® experts provided the solution.
Problem: A global automotive manufacturer’s crankshaft production at one facility fell
short of its 1500 crankshafts per day objective. Analysis proved further production time
was being lost due to foaming and heavy bacterial contamination of a heavy-duty
ester-based coolant.
Solution: TRIM® C270 proved the perfect solution. Independent testing confirms
C270 dissipates foam 13.9 times faster than the competition, and operates at a
very low bacteria level. The automotive manufacturer changed to C270 with
dramatic savings in coolant costs, water, filter media use, and downtime.

Here’s how TRIM® MicroSol® 690XT semisynthetic
outperformed expectations for Excel Manufacturing
MicroSol 690XT saves time and money
Brad Watts, Makino a81 operator, is thrilled with their change to
premium semisynthetic MicroSol 690XT. They had been using
two different coolants in their shop, one of which was targeted
specifically at their foaming issues. Now they were looking for
one high-performance solution that could do it all. After a threemonth
trial, Excel Manufacturing changed over their whole shop
to MicroSol 690XT.
They find MicroSol 690XT has provided much better lubricity
with low foam and much less coolant consumption. They had
been running their coolant with a high refractometer reading
in an effort to address their problem with excessive foam. Now
they run MicroSol 690XT at half the refractometer reading with
no foaming issues at all.
Brad Watts attests, “Even with the previous, reliable low-foam
coolant, foam would build up in the reserve wait area so
high that it coated the drum and caused the machine to go
into a low-coolant false alarm. With the MicroSol 690XT, foam
barely builds up, then breaks down quickly without a problem.
MicroSol 690XT is going to save us a lot of money... and
I’m really excited we got it shop-wide.”
Longer tool life and less foam with MicroSol 690XT
Maintenance supervisor Curt Metcalf tells us about their
successful three-month testing of MicroSol 690XT. “We tested
it on aluminum, cast iron, and ductal iron. It solved a reaming
problem we were having on aluminum, and we saw improved
tool life. Operators like the low chemical smell and the parts are
much cleaner.”
To resolve their foaming issues Curt says they had tried other
quality coolants, even those specially designed to be low-foam.
One premium microemulsion did solve the foam problems, but
resulted in shorter tool life. With excellent low-foam properties
and exceptional tool life, Curt says, “MicroSol 690XT does it all!”

A Heber Springs, Arkansas facility, as part of a global company, focuses on suspension products for the
automotive industry using COBAPRESS™, gravity die casting, low-pressure casting, machining, and assembly.
The facility works with aluminum alloy.
THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION
THE RESULTS
Machine operators handle parts all day that are
saturated in metalworking fluid, and environmental health
and safety for these employees is a big concern for the
facility. Dermatitis not only affects employee morale but
also productivity.
Additionally, at a plant like this one, a lot of fluids are
used on a day-to-day basis. A significant driver for
choosing fluid is how to lower the cost per piece,
which in this case is how much metalworking fluid is
used to manufacture one part, measured in gallons of
concentrate.
The facility chose a TRIM® MicroSol® product that has
moderate to heavy lubricity, as well as low carry off on
the parts. It meets the health and safety standards set
by the company, as well as a cleanliness specification to
protect the state-of-the-art machines in the plant.
In addition to providing guidance for choosing fluid,
Master Fluid Solutions also came on-site to implement
service aspects to better control fluid management.
This included weekly fluid sampling and concentration
checks, as well as training for facility employees. This
ongoing on-site maintenance and education helps them
improve the life of their fluid.
The cost savings alone have proven that the TRIM®
MicroSol® fluid is ideal for the facility. The company was
able to slash its cost per piece by 30%, a savings of
approximately $180,000 per year or $540,000 over the
three-year contract signed with Master Fluid Solutions.
The facility is also seeing a cleaner working environment.
And as a result of the improved metalworking fluid
management techniques implemented alongside Master
Fluid Solutions, the company has also reduced the
need for service labor and floor maintenance due to
equipment failures.

Over the Long Haul: Commercial Truck and Van Engine Manufacturer Eliminated Rust Problem: This manufacturer’s engines are found in virtually every type of commercial
truck and van on the road today, yet they were using an inexpensive local coolant and
were plague with rusting parts and excessive foam. With poor sump life, their 6,500-
gallon central system needed to be dumped every three months.
Besides reducing overall coolant costs and related downtime, improvements include: no
more rusty parts to rework, reduced oil mist, cleaner parts and work area, and better
operator acceptance.
Solution: They needed a coolant that offered low foaming, long sump life, and rust
protection – TRIM® C270 was the solution. They made the switch and the system has
been up and running over eight months without needing to be dumped. Though the local
coolant was one-tenth the cost of C270, the switch to C270 has paid for itself already.

PROVEN COST SAVINGS
Eliminated need for costly additives
to control foam and bacteria
No foaming problems meant
no sump pumpout downtime
FOAM DOWNTIME
Solution: Starting in 2003, TRIM® C270 was used in a group of existing Landis
grinders. Impressive results led to C270 replacing other coolants throughout the
plant. When new Schleifring grinders were installed, C270 was their fluid of choice.
Problem: This Chinese diesel engine manufacturer needed to improve their overall
camshaft/crankshaft grinding process and reduce costs. They’d used both an
expensive, high-tech, semisynthetic coolant and a less expensive local blend; both
had problems with foam and short sump life.
Having eliminated foaming, the need for additives, and having improved sump life,
the manufacturer now uses C270 exclusively in their entire grinding process — over
100 machines of various sizes.
Going the Distance
When a global engine and parts manufacturer
had a problem, TRIM® experts had the solution.

TRIM® MicroSol® 690XT produced
dramatic results for Ace Manufacturing
Ace Manufacturing of Cincinnati, Ohio had been running
another coolant with far less than desired results. They were
experiencing multiple problems: ”tap break and a real terrible
tool life”, along with problems with foam, shop uncleanliness,
rust on machines, and foul odor. Within weeks of beginning
their trial of MicroSol 690XT on three CNC machines, they
reported tool life was dramatically improved. Highly lubricious
MicroSol 690XT was keeping the machines lightly oiled,
rust-free, and definitely cleaner without any residue build up.
Tapping into fluid savings - and bonuses -
with MicroSol 690XT
Ace supervisor Chuck Adams says, ”We’re losing a lot of coolant
because it was foaming out of the side of the tanks, especially
the two Morey’s with the high-pressure units. We were losing
15 to 20 gallons a week just from overflow. Since we have
changed to MicroSol 690XT, we have no foam at all! Our
operators like the pleasant odor and the shop environment is
cleaner. We’re changing the entire shop over to MicroSol 690XT.”
”We were having a lot of tap wear and tap breaks trying to
tap titanium,” Chuck testifies. ”After putting in MicroSol 690XT,
tapping is much better, lubricity much higher, we’re having less
failure, and our taps are lasting a lot longer. We are not shutting
down to change tools as often, so we exceeded our production
target and got our bonus this past quarter!”
MicroSol 690XT, the problem solver
Ace Manufacturing’s CNC operator Phil Smith couldn’t be
more impressed with MicroSol 690XT’s performance. Phil
reports “Since we have switched to using MicroSol 690XT, it
has eliminated all my rust issues, all of my tapping and tooling
breakage problems, all the odor issues, and all of the foaming
issues! It has been a great coolant!”
Let MicroSol 690XT put you at the top of the pack!

Ace Manufacturing enjoys keeping it clean
with the switch to TRIM® MicroSol® 690XT.
When Ace Manufacturing of Cincinnati, OH switched to
MicroSol 690XT shopwide, here is what Shop Supervisor Chuck
Adams reported...“after just the first couple weeks, the inside
of the machines, way covers, and jigs are rust free and the
machines are definitely a lot cleaner. It keeps the inside of the
machines lightly oiled with a light film, but there is no discoloration
or residue buildup.”
Chuck continues, “With the MicroSol 690XT, we have virtually
no residue in our machines. The operators like the coolant a
lot better because it keeps their machines clean and they don’t
have to work hard cleaning the parts after machining. Not only
are the parts themselves cleaner, but the smell’s better and the
workplace is cleaner.”
Choose MicroSol 690XT:
> highest lubricity MicroSol product for
markedly longer tool life and superior finish
> exceptional foam control, low carryoff
> dramatically extended sump life for
substantial savings on time and material
> soft aqueous film protects parts, keeps machines clean
> multimetal, multi-operation versatility
> superior corrosion inhibition on
ferrous and nonferrous metals
> nonchlorinated; no nitrates, triazine, phenol, or
sulphurized EP additives
> no need for tank-side biocides or fungicides
> boron- and halogen-free
Use MicroSol 690XT especially for:
> steel, stainless steel, copper, titanium and
aluminum alloys, and most composites
> high-pressure, low-foaming operations
Keep it really clean with MicroSol 690XT!

TRIM® MicroSol® 590XT

My name is Charles Davis, Jr., with C & R Machine. We are trying the new MicroSol 590XT. We're running it in some 12L14 for some conveying system rollers. With 590XT I am getting better surface finishes, better insert life compared to my older coolant which was an oil based coolant, a lot less maintenance with this coolant compared to the oil based and it mixes well and stays mixed, where I always had separation before with the oil based coolant. That's where we're running it pretty hard um like I said we are still seeing better tool life, I haven't seen any of the speeds and feeds from what I always ran before, still running the same, we're getting a little bit better tool life. With the 590XT we are seeing a lot better surface finishes, the chips are coming out a lot nicer, parts are coming out nicer, and cleaner, a lot less time to clean parts up after they are machined, this is a single op where we just de-burr it and dry the parts off and they go into the box, from there.

On the left is TRIM MicroSol 585, while on the right is our new TRIM MicroSol 585XT, an extended-life, nonchlorinated semisynthetic metalworking fluid. Both products are mixed using a standard kitchen mixer and at exactly five minutes the mixer is stopped. Notice how quickly the foam completely dissipates from our new MicroSol 585XT. It only takes seven seconds, compared to fourteen seconds for the original MicroSol 585.

Turn Your Machine Cleaning Downtime Into Uptime With Whamex XT™

Whamex has an excellent reputation for easy, fast, and productive machine sump and coolant system clean outs. Whamex can be added to machines utilizing emulsion or semisynthetic coolants and will start cleaning the sump while parts are still being cut. However, when used with pure synthetic coolants, Whamex is difficult to use while still cutting parts; it can create a lot of foam. As part of our Master STAGES™ surface treatment product line, we are introducing low-foaming Whamex XT. Production time is now increased for machine sumps filled with synthetic coolants -- parts can be cut while the cleaning process begins! The new Whamex XT cleans just as well as the original. In this side-by-side drip demonstration, on the left is the original Whamex. On the right, is the new Whamex XT. Both are cleaning the purple-dyed, typical semisynthetic coolant equally well.

As for foam, even under extreme agitation which is validated by this mixer test, a mixture of the new Whamex XT and a typical synthetic coolant is breaking foam as quickly as the beater is creating it. And when the agitation is stopped, any foam in the new Whamex XT breaks immediately. This demonstrates the low-foaming characteristics of Whamex XT and how machine-cleaning downtime can be turned into uptime!

Contact your Master Fluid Solutions distributor today to start benefiting from the amazing new low-foaming machine-cleaning technology -- Whamex XT!
