ISO 45001, The First True World-Wide Safety Standard, is Here

ISO 45001 is here! This free deployment package shows how to embrace the new standard, which aligns health & safety management systems (OH&S) worldwide. It reflects the increasingly complex organizational environments in the international marketplace and its far-reaching supply chains. Before ISO 45001, there was no globally recognized standard for OH&S. Yet with increasingly complex organizational environments and international supply chains, there is a growing need to provide safe and healthy working environments for all elements of production, by harmonizing health & safety management systems.

Machining Without Coolant

Heat buildup on dry machining operations reduces tool life and machining rates. The Cold Gun Aircoolant System produces a stream of clean, cold air at 50°F (28°C) below supply air temperature. Operation is quiet and there are no moving parts to wear out. It will remove heat to prolong tool life and increase productivity on machining operations. The Cold Gun eliminates the costs associated with the purchase and disposal of cutting fluids and worker related health problems from breathing airborne coolants or slipping on wet floors. EXAIR's Cold Gun is non-adjustable to prevent freeze-up during use. » Learn More
