Cutting oil is a coolant and lubricant fluid designed specifically for metalworking, such as machining or stamping processes. Sprayed directly on the cutting tool, it lowers temperatures and reduces friction, maximizing the life of the tool, while preventing rust and corrosion. Cutting oil is delivered to the machine through a high volume pumping system that continuously sprays, reclaims, filters and recirculates oil to the tools and parts. At this Northwest machining company, EchoPod ultrasonic level transmitters are mounted over the oil filter baskets. The non-contact sensors provide continuous level measurement data to the PLC, which in turn, monitors the oil height to indicate when the filters need replacement. The sensor’s internal relay also provides an independent low level alarm. EchoPod is reliable cutting oil level measurement.
