“At Wogaard, we like to say that we are in the business of saving oil/coolant costs, the environment and improving Health and Safety a lot of tick marks for any manufacturing business,” said Jason Hutt, managing director of Wogaard. “We realise sustainability will have a significant impact on people, society, and the environment. So, the manufacturing industry needs to work hard to reduce its effect on nature and climate.”
Wogaard’s flagship product, the 'Coolant Saver', was designed with cost-saving being in mind, as it involved a solution to reclaim the good coolant from the swarf bin and return it to the machine for re-use. It has made a huge difference to so many businesses since its creation. It enables companies to save money by improving efficiency, protect the environment and reducing disposal costs by cutting down waste, and keep their working area cleaner by diminishing the amount of mess left in the swarf bin.
“Over the last decade we have assisted hundreds of businesses in reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing activities,” Hutt explained. “Of course, we want to support clients making cost savings and improving their manufacturing processes, but together we have a bigger mission, which is to become more sustainable to support the environment. With thousands of units supplied globally, saving millions of litres of coolant every day, along with a great customer base, we are proud that we are achieving this and are focused on designing more unique products with this in kind."
However, spreading the message of sustainability is not always easy, as Wogaard’s MD explained. “We sometimes encounter negative mindsets when we talk to clients about sustainability,” Hutt says. “Therefore, we often find it more effective to highlight how much our products will save them in terms of money and resources first, and then mention that these savings are also good for the environment.”
The Coolant Saver is not a complicated product. However, it executes its purpose so perfectly that it is impossible not to be impressed. And its impact on sustainability is clear for all to see, so we suggest you come and check it out for yourself at Mach 2022 at the NEC in Birmingham on 4-8 April. You will find Wogaard at stand 20-26.
