Unist products have had some great results throughout the industry. Don't take our word for it . . . here's what some of our customers have to say:
We have had these sprayers in house now for one year we started with one, we now have four. These units have helped us increase our tool life on our Spring Generator machines by up to 60%. They have greatly reduced the heat build up in the forming process of our springs and have allowed us to reduce the number of tool changes on a run, which has allowed us to reduce our cost. The pay back on the capital expense for all four machines was less then three months. We have a total of 13 machines that we are looking at installing more of these units on as we upgrade them. When we added the units to the process we did not have to change or add any steps in our process. Parts were inspected at an outside lab to ensure they still met our specification. We passed all test with better marks then with out the units.- Dale R. Meyer, Manager Metal Fabrication & Assembly: Cherry Electrical Products
In February of 1999, We purchased our first uni-MAX Serv-O-Sprayer. We purchased the unit in hopes it would help solve a problem. We were having to run parts in a basket to let the oil drain before packaging, and reduce the amount of oil on the floor around the tapper. We started using the uni-MAX serv-o-sprayer in March of that year. The parts were much cleaner and we found that we were using much less lubricant and the taps were lasting longer. We were also able to increase our production by eliminating the need to drain the parts before packing. We updated our second tapper in February of 2000 with the same results as the first one. In September of 2000 we quoted a job that had in die tapping. We chose to try the uni-MAX Serv-O-Sprayer instead of flooding the tooling with lubricant. We tap 8 holes in a progressive die at 60 SPM. We are getting excellent tap life with this system. We also have a forming problem with a progressive die that runs .250 thick material. We had a problem keeping lube on one form station that was causing us a lot of maintenance time. We installed a uni-MAX Serv-O-Sprayer and shot a few drops or lubricant on the strip at the bend station solving the maintenance problem.- Terry Teague, Production Manager: M.S. Willett, Inc.
In regards to the performance of Unist MQL Systems, Both Armo and Abuma believe it is an excellent product and well worth the investment. Over the past few years we have implemented Unist systems on metal cutting saws, milling and drilling machines. We have seen considerable improvements in productivity, tool life and machine cleanliness. We have been able to eliminate coolant usage almost entirely. We employ skilled Machinists and Toolmakers that have 20 plus years of industry experience that prefer this product over traditional coolants. After the initial investment the cost to operate these systems is very small. The cutting fluid is applied in very precise volumes and location on the cutting tool. Very little fluid is consumed, 4 liters of Unist Coolube under most conditions last for months. One of the most obvious advantages of Unist MQL systems over coolant is machine cleanliness. Not only does the machine stay very clean, so does the entire work area and work pieces. The metal chips are very easily cleaned up as they are not covered in sticky residues. I recommend this product. It is definitely worth a trial.- Mike Guyett, Production Supervisor: Abuma Manufacturing
