Productivity Solutions was begun eight years ago. Our focus was always on improving machining and grinding systems to improve production, thereby reducing costs. The owner’s background is in the field of CNC grinding. He worked for large grinding wheel manufacturers and has over twenty five years of experience in the field. As a mechanical engineer, he has searched for ways to make grinding and machining on CNCs more cost effective for each customer.
We have run tests in companies of all sizes. Coolant delivery often seems to be an issue. Learning from tests, we went on to see that the number of lines open, how they were angled and how they were positioned changed effectiveness. We began by helping to create correct coolant line setups using the solenoids and ports available. This resulted in increased productivity.
After working with operators over the years and addressing various issues, we realized there was a need for a better way to optimize coolant delivery by companies involved in CNC machining and grinding.
We went on to invent SwivelJet in 2008. We brought it to the person who often makes a new technology work on a CNC grinders; the operator. The coolant lines’ ability to be flexible, easy to adjust, aim, shorten, lengthen, and hold position took two years of working together with operators to bring about all of the improvements. Now, the SwivelJet line is accepted everywhere manufacturing is being done.
