MP Systems Inc. has launched its first integrated chiller and high pressure coolant system. The all-in-one system, named the “S2,” was developed specifically for the metalcutting industry, accommodating the growing need for high pressure, stabilized coolant to help maintain the tight tolerances of many parts. The system can be integrated with most types of CNC machine tools, including machining centers, turning centers and Swiss-type lathes. Either water or oil-based coolants may be used.
 
Realtime monitoring is managed by the S2’s PLC (programmable logic controller). The PLC directs the S2 to respond to changing conditions, such as air and tank temperatures and the outgoing coolant temperatures from the machine tool. The compact system stabilizes coolant to ± 1 degree of ambient temperature. The controller also provides average temperature readings, eliminating random spikes or drops in temperatures. A 7-day timer clock, an exclusive S2 feature, allows users to circulate and establish the coolant temperature in the machine tool tank to as long as 1 hour before starting the machine. This functionality decreases the wait time for the fluid to reach the desired temperature prior to cutting operations. The timer clock has two options, a Monday to Friday setting and a Saturday to Sunday setting to accommodate all shifts, including those that are “lights out.”
 
To help keep the shop floor neat and orderly, the system has a remote valve block. The manifold block may be mounted neatly on the machine with just one high pressure hose leading to the system. This single-hose remote manifold option addresses the clutter and safety risk of having multiple lines laying on the floor for multi-port and Swiss-type applications.
 
A built-in feed pump supplies the chiller and high pressure pump with optimum flow. It also accommodates aerated fluid exceptionally well, according to MP Systems. When used with water-based coolant, the S2 pumps up to 1,000 psi at 8 gallons per minute. With oils, it reaches up to 2,000 psi at 5 gallons per minute.
