There is a better way

Cutting fluids are commonly used to reduce temperature and friction in metal cutting processes. These cutting fluids constitute a serious environmental hazard and health risk for employees, leading to a significant direct and indirect cost to all stakeholders. Industry has been looking for ways to mitigate the negative impact of the cutting fluids – and ideally to find a replacement for metal cutting fluids. Finally, the better way is here: Aurion.

Our Mission

Aurion transforms the global machine tools market by replacing metal working fluids and setting a new global standard for sustainable machining.

THE AURION SOLUTION

Cooled, Ionized air flow

Aurion system uses cooled and ionized air as a coolant and lubricant in the cutting zone.

Aurion is implemented using a dedicated air-cooling unit with built-in electronics and integrated software.

Aurion can be applied to both existing and new machine tools.

The system has no mechanical wear parts – leading to ease of maintenance.

COMPARISON

The cleanest solution

Aurion technology is developed through a 10 year dedicated R&D effort. The Aurion solution is now ready for market introduction following recent comprehensive validation runs by high quality third parties, including Universities and leading Industrial actors.

Aurion technology and intellectual property rights are covered and fully protected by a comprehensive Patents portfolio.
