Fusion Coolant Systems has formed a strategic partnership with Air Liquide to increase sustainability, productivity and employee health & safety for manufacturers engaged in CNC machining.

Fusion is the inventor and exclusive source of a highly successful and proprietary technology called Pure-Cut®, which utilises supercritical CO2 as a replacement for traditional mineral oil coolant and lubrication systems in CNC machining.

Air Liquide, with newly secured sourcing solutions in Europe of purified CO2, a sub product from chemical & biogas industries, and strong know-how in gas installations design, is uniquely positioned to support the wide-spread introduction of supercritical CO2 machining offered by Fusion, in compliance with established safety and regulatory regulations.

The two companies expect to jointly sell and install Pure-Cut systems in South West Europe (France, Italy, Spain, Portugal), while exploring opportunities to expand the geographic reach of the alliance.

This partnership highlights how Air Liquide regularly brings to its customers the latest, most innovative technologies that support industrial efficiency and sustainability objectives.

Jean-Marie Padovani, Director of Innovation of Air Liquide, commented, “We look forward to our future collaboration with Fusion that will enrich our gas applications portfolio, already existing, for CNC machining.”

“Air Liquide’s expertise in CO2 and Fusion’s innovative technology are key enablers to ensure a broad and fast dissemination of a complete solution to the benefit of the entire manufacturing sector.”

Brian Ahlborn, CEO at Fusion Coolant Systems, added, “We are delighted to be working with Air Liquide, a highly innovative, global leader in industrial gases with a global reputation for technology development.”

“Together, we will be able to accelerate the diffusion and impact of Pure-Cut technology for industry leaders in aerospace, medical, and transportation sectors who are seeking a safe, sustainable, and extremely efficient tool in order to meet their challenging financial, operational and HSE objectives.”
