Most shops don’t think about machinery fluids and lubricants until they have a problem. Then the machine tool goes down, production is lost, parts fail . . . here’s how a little maintenance can go a long way.
While the idea of sustainability is becoming better defined and understood, many manufacturers are still not taking the necessary steps to implement newer proven technologies that foster sustainability. Why?
This case study explains how Chemtool formulated a novel metalworking fluid with Dow Chemical to clean up the cast iron machining operations of a Midwest machine shop.
Ed Zitney of SKF Machine Tool Services shows how proper care and maintenance can make all the difference in both its operation and longevity in service.
Even though a machine tool spindle is a high-precision machine component, more often than not it is handled carelessly, forced to perform well beyond design limitations, or otherwise abused to the breaking point.
Kevin Smith assumes responsibility for general management of their EMEA region and global leadership of their transportation industry segments.
Their CIMPERIAL 861 is cleared for heavy-duty machining of non-ferrous and ferrous metals, including 6000 and 7000 series aluminum, stainless steels, titanium and other exotic alloys.
Mike Shannon succeeds Paul DeVivo, who is retiring.
The strategy behind Resource-Efficient Manufacturing is to introduce new approaches to metalworking fluids that dramatically reduce resource use.
CECOR Sump Shark sump cleaners separate metalworking fluids from the solids being vacuumed so the fluids can be recycled.
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.
