As technology continues to evolve, so do the challenges that arise in the manufacturing industry. One of the challenges that persist is managing coolant and chips in the machining process. 

Having a well-designed chip and coolant management system is crucial. One of the most innovative solutions to this problem is the TUE Series Top Cover Chip and Coolant Management System. The new top cover for the TUE Series of vertical turning machines is an integrated enclosure that provides quick and easy access to the machine tool while preventing chips and coolant from exiting the machine tool workzone.
