Established in 2008, Fluid Maintenance Solutions is a specialist engineering services company with proven expertise in reducing the cost and impacts of fluids and lubricants in high-performance manufacturing environments.
Based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park and with a separate processing facility in Sheffield, we are a partner at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing and also members of the Manufacturing Technologies Association.
Our partnership at the AMRC extends to providing expertise and collaboration on the technical demands of coolant delivery systems in high-performance machining applications and on the investigation and determination of recycling routes for ‘sump sludge’ produced during machining operations.
Recognised for our innovation, we were finalists in both Best Supporting Equipment and Best Health, Safety & Environmental Practice categories at the Advanced Manufacturing Awards 2012.
Our best-in-class solutions have been developed to radically improve tool life, maximise metal removal rate and increase yield and value of revert in high-performance machining applications across a wide range of industry sectors, including aerospace and automotive.
We promise, and deliver, sustainable and reliable solutions which reduce the operational, environmental and ultimately, financial impact of fluid use in production environments.
We work in partnership with RBM as the sole UK agent for their IFDR precision filtration solutions; IFDRs are at the forefront of improving metal cutting performance and are a significant step change in technical capability and operational reliability, proven to at least double effective tool life.
Our own patent-pending SMR process, where we divert metal rich sludge and grinding fines from landfill or hazardous waste processing to maximise both yield and revert value, is the next step of what is a comprehensive and effective solution, making FMS a unique partner to help improve operational, environmental and financial performance.
