All you make is chips.™
Since 1984, Inter-Source has engineered chip management solutions for companies in a variety of industries including wheel manufacturing and aerospace. With a focus on a rapid return on investment (ROI), our many machines are customized to your application and needs. Some of our systems are still running 30 years after installation with routine maintenance. Since opening our doors, Inter-Source has engineered and installed hundreds of systems in several countries.
At Inter-Source, our goal is to make your job easier by drastically reducing safety and housekeeping concerns. Our top-selling systems remove oils and coolants from your chips to reduce pollution and increase your ROI. By removing more than 98% of cutting fluids from your chips and eliminating external, environmental contamination, our systems reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40%. Whether you want to reconstitute the chips and liquids or sell them to a scrap yard, our clean, green, CO2-reducing machines will do the job for you.
Inter-Source knows, “All you make is chips.”™ Not computer chips. Not poker chips. Not potato chips. Not buffalo chips, but metal chips.
What do you do with your chips? Inter-Source’s green systems leave your chips with less than 2% liquid retention, decreasing your costs and environmental impact. Inter-Source’s autonomous chip processing makes your chips useful again.
“I am not ashamed of our chip spinning area anymore.
In fact, it has become one of the bright spots in our building.
I am proud to show visitors our Inter-Source system”
– Scott Kellenberger, President F&H Manufacturing Inc.
From Hazardous Waste to ROI:
“As it turns out, Northrop is being paid an excess of $50,000 a year for those aluminum chips.”
