One of the industrial process fluids leaders, Quaker Houghton joins hands with high-tech provider of coolant control and delivery systems

Quaker Houghton recently entered into an exclusive joint venture with Grindaix GmbH. The solutions provided by Grindaix apply to a wide range of machining processes, including grinding applications in the metalworking sector. The technology the company provides helps customers precisely measure and optimise parameters, such as coolant flow, velocity, temperature, nozzle angles and pressures. This results in increasing the success of coolant application significantly.

Expressing his views on this partnership, Joe Berquist, SVP & Chief Strategy Officer, Quaker Houghton, expounded, “This partnership is an excellent strategic fit with broad application. We see several advantages for our customers investing in system automation and optimisation trends evolving from Industry 4.0.”

He further added, “Advanced capabilities by Grindaix enable us to deliver on our promise to make our customers more competitive, as we combine advanced product chemistry with equipment solutions to deliver an optimal package for performance, cost and quality. We call this powerful combination 'Fluid Intelligence'. Their data-based approach to coolant system operation has been growing steadily in the German market, and we see an opportunity to leverage their technology across our broader solutions portfolio.”
