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
©2020 Master Fluid Solutions. Master Fluid Solutions®, TRIM® and MicroSol® are registered trademarks of Master Chemical Corporation d/b/a Master Fluid Solutions. 2020-05-07
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 minimise 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 £28,140/ €32,353 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.
“Master Fluid Solutions built a coolant that
we can recycle and send back through our
machines, and all improvements were made
by them. We’ve built a good relationship, and
they’re an important partner of ours.”
– Duane Berg, Maintenance and Facilities Manager
Coolant Waste Dramatically Reduced
Aerospace Components Supplier Resolves Contamination using Master Fluid Solutions Aerospace Components Supplier Resolves
Contamination using 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. 2020-04-16
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 aluminium, with 19 machines in total consisting of
mills, machining centres and lathes. The aerospace industry requires a precision operation, while also
minimising 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 £65/ €71 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 £2,000/ €2,182 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 aluminium, 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 £8,000/ €8,730 per
year. Resolving bacterial contamination also removed the
bad odours 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.
“During the six-week test run, we resolved the
bacterial contamination issue, leading to no
need for costly cleanouts since April 2019.”

Aerospace Components Manufacturer Reduces Consumption with Master Fluid Solutions Aerospace Components Manufacturer Reduces
Consumption 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. 2020-04-16
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 aluminium, 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 odour.
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.
• Top-up strength halved from 2% to 1%
• Biocide additions no longer needed
• Machine operators requested TRIM MicroSol
590XT in all their machines
Reduced Consumption!
Nuclear Components Manufacturer Reduces Consumption by 30% with Master Fluid Solutions Nuclear Components Manufacturer Reduces
Consumption by 30% 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. 2020-04-16
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 aluminium 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, semi-synthetic microemulsion coolant. TRIM
MicroSol 515 is ideal for working with mixed metals
and aluminium alloys and its translucent emulsion
characteristics reduce carry-off 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 product usage. Tests of a neat grinding oil and
ultrasonic cleaning fluid are underway.
• Doubled sump life
• 30% reduction in fluid consumption
• 15% overall cost savings

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 odours, 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
£403,264/ €456,103 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 £82/ €92 per hour, with MicroSol 590XT, the manufacturer
is now saving an additional £221,091/ €251,944 per year. Each
machine cleanout also required at least one maintenance employee
for two hours at a labor rate of £33/ €37 per hour. By reducing
the need for frequent coolant changes, they yielded an additional
£87,786/ €100,038 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.
• 50% reduction in coolant usage
• £403,264/ €456,103 saved in coolant costs annually
• Coolant life of 12 to 13 months
• £221,091/ €251,944 annual cost savings from increased
machine utilization
• £87,786/ €100,038 in reduced labor costs annually
• £712,141/ €808,085 total annual savings

A UK manufacturer of
aerospace components had
seemingly insurmountable
problems using Houghton
Aquacare AL– then TRIM
MicroSol 590XT saved the day!
The Houghton Aquacare AL coolant
caused sticky residue buildup in
machines and produced parts so sticky
it added process time to get them clean.
Extremely high levels of bacteria and
fungus caused a horrid foul odour,
employee breathing problems, and
health and safety issues. Measuring
probes distorted by coolant fungal
growth caused inaccurate tooling
measurements, and off-spec parts.
They needed a change!
Master Fluid Solutions recommended
TRIM MicroSol 590XT. The new charge
of high-performance MicroSol 590XT
eliminated all problems with foul odour,
fungus, and unreliable laser probe
readings and subsequent defective parts.
Annual coolant consumption was
reduced by 32,000lts!
Long-lasting MicroSol 590XT dropped
coolant spend by £10,000 annually
and massively reduced machine and
component cleaning costs.
Using MicroSol 590XT, they were able to
implement a fluid recycling program to reuse
an average of 5,000lts per week. Previously
paying £150 per 5,000lts to dispose of
waste coolant, the customer saved £7,800
annually. Better for their green credentials
and the planet.
Additional savings overall due to
> increased component surface quality
> cleaner components
> longer sump and tool life
> considerably lower machine maintenance
> less machine downtime

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.

Curt Metcalf Solves Reaming Problem with MicroSol® 690XT

My name is Curt Metcalf and I work at Excel Manufacturing in Seymour, Indiana. We have been testing MicroSol 690XT for about three months now on two different machines with good success. We have tested aluminum, cast iron, and ductal iron. It solved a reaming problem we had on an aluminum machining operation and and gave us good tool life. The operators like it because of the low chemical smell and the parts come clean.

Chuck Adams is Machining A Lot of Titanium with MicroSol® 690XT

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, stated, "Our shop is starting to machine a lot of titanium products. In order to prevent micro fractures in the metal, we wanted a coolant that was nonchlorinated. With the MicroSol 690XT we achieved that purpose and also cut down on tap breaks. We were having a lot of tap wear and tap breaks trying to tap titanium. After putting in the 690XT the tapping is much better, lubricity is much higher, we’re having less failure, and our taps are lasting a lot longer!"

Chuck Adams Tapping into Fluid Savings with MicroSol® 690XT

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio noted, "Prior to using MicroSol 690XT we were using $150 to $200 every two weeks on tapping fluid aerosol cans on all the machines. Now that we are using the TRIM coolant we don’t use any other tapping product. It is now just straight coolant with no problems."

Chuck Adams Wants to Convert Whole Shop to MicroSol® 690XT

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, stated, "After trials with the MicroSol 690XT in three of the machines, we wanted to buy the product. Three to four weeks after cleaning the machines we were having better machining. The product was not available at the time of the trial, so we changed the rest of the shop over to 685XT, which we are currently running. As soon as 690XT goes into production, we are changing the entire shop over to 690XT."

Bradford Watts, "MicroSol® 690XT Runs at About Half the Concentration..."

Bradford Watts of Excel Manufacturing in Seymour, Indiana says, "MicroSol 690XT runs at about half the concentration level as our older style coolant. We have used less of the 690XT in the machines and that has saved us a lot of money. MicroSol 690XT keeps the tools as clean as the old product. MicroSol 690XT is probably the best coolant that we have had in my time here; and I have been here almost ten years."

Superior Metalworking with Low-foaming TRIM® MicroSol® 585XT

Greetings, this is Mark Scherer, from Master Fluid Solutions, with a visual demonstration of how we significantly improved the low foaming characteristics of one of our TRIM cutting fluids. 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. For more information about MicroSol 585XT and other cutting fluids, please visit our website www.masterfluidsolutions.com.

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!
