Unicut Precision winning all the way with Wogaard
With over 40 staff and an array of high specification multi-axis CNC machine tools, Unicut Precision has built its reputation around its staff skill levels and its investment in technology. While attending the recent MACH 2016 exhibition one of the company’s apprentice engineers, Nick Gudgin, won the first prize of a Wogaard Coolant Saver. Now fitted to a Citizen sliding head turning centre the capability of the unit is being fully explored.
Production Supervisor, Gary Garner spoke about the Wogaard Coolant Saver, “As soon as we had the Wogaard Coolant Saver here we fitted it to one of our Citizen A20 machines to test it on the low viscosity neat oil used to control the temperature and lubricate the cutting action of the tool on the raw material. I have to say it is operating extremely well and we have noticed a marked difference between the levels of the neat oil in the swarf bins when we compare the machine with the unit to the ones without. The next step is to modify the swarf bin with a tube to protect the head of the Coolant Saver and make the whole fitment much neater.”
As well as the Wogaard Coolant Saver, Nick Gudgin, who is just about to finish his apprenticeship having worked across all the disciplines of the business, also won a £60 personal gift voucher presented by Wogaard Sales Director, Jason Hutt.
