If you had to name some of the top concerns for manufacturers right now, cutting costs, reducing waste and decreasing environmental impact would probably be at the top of the list.

A solution which enables companies to achieve all of these in one will be showcased at Star GB's annual Open House event from 8th to 10th October in Derbyshire. Industry innovator, Wogaard, will be demonstrating its award-winning Coolant Saver technology at the event, alongside the latest technology and software solutions from Star GB and its partners.

Visitors will be able to view a working model of Wogaard’s Coolant Saver device to witness first-hand how it reclaims fresh coolant rather than allowing it to be carried away with waste materials. Not only does the technology provide up to 50% coolant savings and up to 90% coolant disposal savings, it also enables companies to better address their environmental responsibilities by reducing their carbon footprint through reducing wastage and reprocessing.

Visitors to Star GB's Open House will also learn about how Wogaard’s technology enhances overall facility health and safety, reduces the demands of coolant and swarf handling and provides higher swarf value.

The three-day event organised by Star GB will be its most advanced event yet, where visitors will have the opportunity to see Star’s latest sliding head lathe technology in action, with live machining demonstrations across its range and the UK premiere of a new 38mm Star machine. The latest software innovations including NC Assist, High Frequency Turning (HFT) and the company’s new remote machine monitoring system, SMOOSS-i, will also be on show.

With more trusted partners exhibiting than ever before, there will be a wide range of technology on display giving visitors all of the product, process and industry knowledge needed to maximise productivity and efficiency.

Wogaard’s presence will be its third time exhibiting at the event and supports the educational efforts of the Open House by raising awareness of the benefits of its Coolant Saver technology. Trusted by companies including Renishaw, Mettis Aerospace and Quaker Houghton, utilising Wogaard’s leading technology can result in significant cost savings and a considerable reduction in wastage.

Jason Hutt, managing director of Wogaard, says: “To support the manufacturing industry is our mission and our passion, especially when machining is at its core. We’re all about reusing, recycling and reducing the usage and cost of neat oil and coolant, so it’s great to be able to share this at Star GB's Open House.

The event becomes increasingly successful every year and we are delighted that our long-standing partnership with Star GB gives us the opportunity to educate users on our technology. We look forward to catching up with clients and making new connections throughout the three days.”

Alec Warner, operations manager at Star GB adds: “We are delighted to have Wogaard supporting our event. Its Coolant Saver technology is an innovative solution which has proven very popular with sliding head users. With Wogaard demonstrating their product at the Open House, more customers will be able to see the environmental and cost saving benefits.”

Saving costs, reducing waste and addressing environmental responsibilities are objectives that every manufacturer wants to achieve. A visit to Wogaard’s stand at Star GB's Open House is the ideal opportunity to discover how to do that more easily and affordably.
