The environmental technology company, Nederman, is celebrating 75 years in the sustainable industrial production industry. According to the company, Nederman’s mission is to protect people, production and the planet from the harmful effects of industrial processes. The group has operations in around 50 countries and sustains approximately 2,200 employees.

Sven Kristensson, CEO, says: “In 1944 the term ‘sustainability’ did not exist, but that was Nederman’s business concept then, and it is more relevant than ever today. According to international studies, as many as 95 percent of the world’s population breathe polluted air daily.” In response to this alarming statistic, he adds, “The need for innovative solutions is huge.”

The company says that the development in digitalization, mobile technology and artificial intelligence (AI) has made it possible to develop a new generation of products and services.

“Today we have completely different opportunities to measure, control and optimize the airflow in industrial processes,” says Mr. Kristensson, adding, “Sustainability is central to today's industry, and I can confidently say that Nederman is at the forefront. We may not be able to promise clean air to everyone, but we can make a big difference for many.”

“We have achieved many positive things during these 75 years, but I am convinced that the coming few years will mean almost a revolution in sustainable industrial production,” says Mr. Kristensson.

    With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.

    This micro-volume coolant delivery system uses ethanol as the cooling medium for non-ferrous workpieces. The ethanol evaporates after it cools the cutting tool, so no residue is left behind on machined workpieces.

    An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.
