Tri-Hawk to Install Lube System for Press Lines

Pro-Mix blenders mix, pressurize and distribute a lubricant mixture that is delivered via a Spra-Rite applicator solution consisting of manifolds and nozzles. The manifolds feature independently controlled ejector valves with settings for skip cycle counting, delay spray, and volume control for very precise positioning and application of the lubricant to the workpiece. These systems are equipped with Industrial Innovations Z-series nozzles, which are 99.5 percent drip-free.
A Pro-Mix V proportional mixing system with piping, nozzles and manifolds from Industrial Innovations will deliver lubrication directly to four Aida press lines.

DuBois Chemicals Acquires American Finishing Resources

This deal combines paint pre-treatment expertise with coating line fixtures, material handling and coating removal solutions that reduce total cost and provide quality improvements.

LubeCorp Moving Away From Grease Business

LubeCorp has discontinued CalSul EP2 grease. Calcium sulfonate-based grease can be used as a substitute.
The company has discontinued CalSul EP2 grease and will focus on its line of metalworking fluids, hydraulic fluids, and fuel conditioners.

Egar Tool & Die Installs Press Lubrication System

The system from Industrial Innovations mixes and regulates the volume and placement of lubricant at specific areas of stamping or drawing tools and the stock.

Some of the newest metalworking fluids provide up to four to five times longer sump life, up to 40 percent improved tool life, increased productivity, excellent rancidity control and greatly reduced concentrate usage that is operator friendly. (photo courtesy of CIMCOOL)
Take a look at some of the coolant, lubricant, and metalworking fluid technology being used by shops to increase their metalworking productivity, keep their machine tools clean, and reduce their cost of operations.

Cost-Effective Analysis Of Wear Metals In Oils

The GENESIS system swiftly, accurately, and cost-effectively assesses component wear trends by analyzing lubricating oils for the presence of metals and contaminants that may accelerate wear. This early detection allows users to prevent equipment failures and helps optimize maintenance programs.
SPECTRO Analytical Instruments has introduced a condition monitoring system, based on its SPECTRO GENESIS inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES), that sets new price, performance and productivity standards for condition monitoring laboratories and oil blenders.

Nano-Ceramic Grease Extends Maintenance Intervals, Provides Greater Friction Resistance than Traditional PTFE Greases

DAYLube provides unparalleled friction reduction and wear resistance, making it ideal for a wide range of industrial applications such as the protection of bearings, bushings cables, cams, chains, conveyors, gears, lifters, machine parts, robotics, slides, wear plates and more.
DayLube high performance nano-ceramic grease from Dayton Progress maintains its original viscosity and adhesion even after 100,000 production strokes – significantly extending service intervals for all types of production equipment.
