Global provider of advanced metalworking fluids, services and processes, Houghton International, has supplied Blackburn-based engineering training provider, Training2000, with its latest product and cutting-edge development: the Houghto-Mix.
The installation will allow these trainee engineers to have hands-on experience of working with a state-of-the-art coolant system as part of their education.
The Houghto-Mix from Houghton is the most recent addition to its line of FluidCare equipment solutions for a range of industries, including automotive and aerospace. The standalone coolant mixing station is proven to significantly reduce production time and reduce water waste in the mixing process.
Designed to mix and distribute water-soluble coolants to pre-set, accurate, and consistent concentrations as required, the Houghto-Mix is ideal for entire workshops or individual workstations. The unit has the ability to store up to four password-protected pre-set calculations for coolants, enabling operators to switch between settings as necessary while working, guaranteeing solution percentage accuracy.
In addition to the Houghto-Mix, Houghton has worked closely with Training2000 previously to deliver industry-standard workshops on both coolant care and understanding the key benefits of using quality cutting fluids in the machining process to reduce cycle times.
Regional director for Northern EMEA at Houghton, Steve Mayo, said of the investment: “We recognise that effective collaboration between employers and wider education providers will result in excellent high-level skills development that benefits our workforce and the wider economy.”
