Q8Oils has upgraded its Field Service Technician (FST) service by launching QCare — a major upgrade of the system that monitors the condition of Q8Oils metalworking fluids and lubricants in a range of applications such as turning, cutting and grinding.

The QCare service uses a network-enabled, tablet-based system with a bespoke ‘app’ that enables Q8Oils field service technicians to monitor fluids, complete their audits and deliver results while still on site.

In addition, because FSTs are highly trained metalworking experts, when working with machine operators they may also be able to identify problems as their checks are completed and help to rectify them.

A visual inspection and a variety of tests are conducted to ensure Q8Oils products are performing correctly. These include standard fluid parameters such as concentration, pH and microbiological content. They also offer advice that can help customers increase coolant life and optimise performance resulting in improved machining processes and reduced machine downtime.

Customers can also log on to the QCare system using their own tablet or desktop computer and view a full historical report at any time and share it with colleagues. According to the company, the QCare system is easy to operate, fully automated and will create a graphic chart to show a full history of any individual machine.
