ON TARGET WITH TRIM SOLUTIONS:
A well-known, high-production West Coast arms manufacturer of precision-built AR-15 barrels and components drills and mills 416 stainless as well as other gun metals. Running their high-volume, high-pressure machining operations 24/7, they had been experiencing issues with excessive foam. They changed from one
SHOOTING DOWN PRODUCTION PROBLEMS WITH TRIM SOLUTIONS:
Forging and machining 7075 aluminum, our North Carolina customer is a Tier One supplier for one of the largest firearms companies in the world. Manufacturing AR-15 lower components, they machine 7075 aluminum in a Haas vertical milling center (VMC). With the addition of a new machine, they had issues with too much mist from the petroleum-based coolant they were using in their relatively low-ceiling environment. A Master Fluid Solutions' representative suggested a change to environmentally friendly TRIM® E925.
They achieved measurably reduced mist and good operator acceptance, but got so much more than expected... with E925 they have no foam, have doubled their sump life, and with 40% to 50% increase in tool life, they did not need to change their PCD diamond tool in the first six months! Impressed with the results, they have switched over all their machines to E925!
