Chem Arrow Europe was approached by a precision engineering firm manufacturing hydraulic cartridge bodies for heavy off-road machinery. They were looking for an improvement in tool life whilst maintaining an excellent level of surface finish, cleanliness and no staining.
After thorough lab analysis, Chem Arrow recommended ArrowCool SOL-835-H to replace the previous competitor fluid across all machines. The introduction of the new product has seen excellent results, 12 months into the switch the customer is thrilled with the product.
“After switching to Chem Arrow Europe’s ArrowCool SOL- 835-H, we have seen an increase in tool life to 1300 components before surface finish was lost (up from 600 components with the previous fluid).”
They have exceeded tool life targets and were impressed with the per-barrel price.
“ArrowCool SOL- 835-H has exceeded our tool life targets, resulting in more machining time and greater component through-put. In addition, the price per barrel was lower.”
An additional huge benefit to the customer is that the product is manufactured here in the UK which, unlike their previous supply chain, has ensured continuity of supply.
In addition the increased tool life and consistency of surface finish has now given the customer the confidence and assurance they can run their machines ‘lights out’ which in turn has increased productivity throughput significantly.
Overall, the change to ArrowCool SOL-835-H has demonstrated significant tangible savings to the customer when compared to their previous coolant.
