Seco Tools to partner with Fusion Coolant Systems to drive forward corporate environmental sustainability efforts
Fagersta, April 2021 – In an effort to become more sustainable in its machining practices, Seco Tools has partnered with Fusion Coolant Systems (Fusion), which offers an environmentally-friendly coolant technology that can lower overall carbon footprint while increasing overall performance. Both companies have a goal to make machining easier and more effective for manufacturing leaders and engineers, while maintaining environmental awareness, making this partnership a perfect match.
“We have had a working relationship with Fusion Coolant Systems for many years; from the inception of the technology when they developed it years ago. Together we have worked on multiple customer projects and had heavy interaction on the R&D side to come up with solutions that help solve customer issues. So, it really was just a natural transition to formalize this partnership,” said Rob Keenan, President of Seco Tools, North America. “It's about providing complete solutions and we feel strongly that Fusion offers state-of-the-art technology that's going to help customers, especially in the area of medical device manufacturing.” One of the goals of the partnership is to challenge one another to think differently and to find new ways to develop products. In addition, Seco Tools and Fusion believe this partnership helps remove the limitations of current coolant technology and the collaboration helps the industry overcome challenges in new manufacturing methods and materials. “There is so much innovation in the medical sector, including a strong migration towards additive manufacturing. Fusion’s Pure-Cut™ solution allows for dry, or near-dry machining, while improving operating efficiencies,” said Brian Ahlborn. “The Seco team has worked to exploit this technology in their tooling on applications that have now been running for several years in several industries. Our relationship has grown naturally, helping customers solve complex problems.” Both Seco Tools and Fusion are enthusiastic about the partnership and confident this collaboration will deliver customer benefits by co-developing the delivery of Fusion Coolant System’s innovative technology through specifically designed products from Seco Tools.
