Rotherham based manufacturing environmental services provider Fluid Maintenance Solutions Ltd (FMS) has secured the UK distribution rights for advanced fluid filtration systems proven to reduce operational costs for precision manufacturing companies.

The Italian manufactured RBM di Battistutta metalworking fluid filtration solutions have been installed on machine tool systems and grinding systems since 2006 and continue to benefit manufacturers with reduced consumable purchasing costs, waste disposal costs and improved metal recovery volumes.

 “We are absolutely delighted to have secured the UK distribution rights for these unique solutions,” said Steve Thompson, Director at FMS. “Having been in discussions with RBM for over a year and after visiting Italy several times to observe the solutions in operation at various manufacturing sites I was bowled over by their reliability and simplicity. The compactness, consistency and capability of the RBM solutions are beyond anything I have seen available in the marketplace and the product range fits perfectly with our own specialist services to reduce waste and maximise the recovery and value of metals from cutting and grinding processes.”
The RBM solutions can be either retro fitted to existing machines, replace less economical and unreliable filtration systems or supplied as part of turnkey packages for new installations. 

Manufacturing companies have a choice when purchasing new machine tools and a number of leading Original Equipment Manufacturers installations including Mazak, Heller, Hermle and Mori Seiki are operating with RBM filtration solutions.

In this age of advanced manufacturing the RBM filtration solutions are true step changes in operational and environmental performance due to their reliability, consistency and benefits delivered

 reduced health & safety risk to operators
 increased machine tool availability 
 maximised volume of metal swarf recovered 
 extended tool life and wheel dressing intervals
 improved component surface finish, throughput and reduced shop floor rejects
 elimination of purchase costs of paper roll media 
 reduced metalworking fluid consumption
 no sump cleanouts for over 2 years
 waste disposal charges eliminated for paper roll media and sludge

Steve added “We have invested in a demonstration system for shop floor trials so the benefits manufacturers are enjoying can be witnessed at first hand in the UK.”
