When coolants are used for metalworking, the need for automated fluid management processes with low maintenance is obvious. With its high-performance emulsions combined with the innovative FLUIDLYNX COOLANT solution, MOTOREX makes process fluid management automation a reality – and sets new standards in the process.
Founded in 1955, the Swiss company Rau AG manufactures sophisticated rotating and cubic parts for its international customer base. With around 80 employees, including 13 apprentices, the SME has established itself as a high-quality contract manufacturer for a wide range of sectors (semiconductors, analytics, hydraulics, etc.). With a focus on system construction, Rau AG has also diversified into assembling components, devices and machines. The company has access to a clean room and electrostatically neutral (ESD) rooms for this purpose.
If you ask Herbert Wagner, Head of Production at Rau AG, why the company has so many satisfied and long-standing customers, the answer comes instantly: “We attach great importance to partnerships based on mutual appreciation and adding value,” says Wagner. This also applies to our partnership with MOTOREX. Thanks to targeted information exchange processes, so far, all tasks relating to coolants have been carried out quickly and efficiently. The introduction of the MOTOREX FLUIDLYNX COOLANT automatic coolant management system is a particularly successful chapter in our partnership.
Constant optimisation at all levels (productivity, process control, lead times, costs) reflects Rau AG’s high demand for perfection and shapes the road ahead. In this respect, MOTOREX's comprehensive coolant system solution signals an important step forward for Rau AG.
Which aspects were decisive for you when choosing SWISSCOOL coolants?
«We have generally had only good experiences with the SWISSCOOL 8000 and 8500 coolants. The biostability, cutting performance and human friendliness in particular set the standard. We process a wide range of different working materials as part of a three-shift operation, and so the coolants need to be stable and suitable for universal use. This gives us additional process security, particularly during the unmanned third shift. What’s more, the quality-price-performance ratio is just right.»
What does the company hope to achieve through automated coolant management?
«The FLUIDLYNX COOLANT boxes used are designed to relieve employees of certain burdens by taking on routine tasks. As with our processing machines, we also strive for the highest possible level of automation for our coolant management system. The following tasks can be automated using just one device:
Would you recommend MOTOREX's fluid automation solutions to others?
«Yes. I am particularly impressed by the MOTOREX system solution. Lubrication technology suppliers often only supply one product – with MOTOREX, the solution consists of consultation, coolants, innovative infrastructure and technical expertise. This is the only way the customer can move forward.»
