The LNS Group has acquired ChipBlaster Inc., the maker of high pressure coolant systems, coolant chillers, cyclonic filtration systems and other machine tool peripherals.

“ChipBlaster is a market leader in the U.S. high-pressure coolant industry and is a natural fit into our machine tool peripheral product portfolio,” says Jeff McMullen, LNS North America CEO. “At LNS we plan to leverage our global sales and service network to sell ChipBlaster’s technologically advanced products on a worldwide basis. A common thread running through both companies is the goal of helping manufacturers optimize the efficiency of their machine tools to improve performance, productivity and profitability.”

ChipBlaster President Greg Antoun adds, “We’re excited to join the LNS family. Both companies continuously advance machine tool peripheral technology, create products of the highest quality, and focus on customer needs, so this will not only be of great benefit to each organization, but also to the customers we both serve.”

In 2016, a large addition was made to ChipBlaster’s Meadville, Pennsylvania, facility to meet increasing demand. Current plans are for the business to continue operating from this location under present management.

A global company headquartered in Orvin, Switzerland, LNS designs, builds, sells and supports a broad line of bar feeders and chip conveyors, vacuum unloaders, oil/coolant mist collectors, coolant management systems, and workholding devices.
