​Supercritical carbon dioxide mql and Coolant System

heat: metal-cutting's number one challenge

Today's ​metalworking fluids compromise cooling for lubrication. Add oil and you reduce cooling. Add water and you reduce lubricity. ​Oil-in-air minimum quantity lubrication can lubricate but doesn't cool​ well​. Liquid nitrogen can cool but doesn't lubricat​​e​ well​.

the fusion solution

Only Fusion Coolant System's supercritical carbon dioxide gives maximum cooling and lubrication potential at the same time, increasing productivity and reducing system-level costs. Fusion's supercritical solution flows to the point of machining as a single-phase system and is released from high pressure, producing a strong cooling effect and delivering dry, or enhanced lubrication. Call us today to realize the cost saving benefits of using Fusion's heat management ​and lubrication ​technology with your manufacturing applications.


Medical Implants & Instruments

Fusion has the unique ability to machine parts without oils, emulsions or synthetics. The Pure-Cut 1000 produces a dry, clean part while lowering operation costs, increasing productivity and improving operator environment.

Aerospace, Defense & Power Generation

Increased productivity with Titanium, Inconel and other heat recalcitrant materials.

Automotive & Heavy Equipment

Increased productivity with hard steels, aluminum, CGI and other common auto materials.


A Michigan Co., Based in Detroit

Fusion Coolant Systems was developed by researcher, educator and serial entrepreneur, Dr. Steven Skerlos​Fusion's R&D facility is fully staffed with CNC milling and turning capabilities.

True Innovation

Fusion provides an advanced heat management system that offers benefits not achieved by any other metal cutting technology available today. The Fusion coolant system delivers controllable levels of cooling and lubrication to work zones that are difficult to manage and difficult to reach.
