Through less downtime replacing fluid, less wear and fewer tool replacements, this breakthrough fluid formulation helps machines produce more parts and generate higher revenue over the life of the equipment.
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.
AMP, a multifunctional specialty chemical widely used in metalworking fluids, is no longer classified as a volatile organic compound.
This deal expands their footprint in EDM fluids and stainless steel cold rolling oils throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The new facility will increase their capacity and include a research lab and advanced tanker unloading station.
Ideal for tube bending of 304, 409 and 439 stainless steels up to 8 in diameter, GEL 986-00D from IRMCO contains no mineral oil, no pigments or clays, no PTFE, and no chlorine, zinc, boron, phosphorous or sulfur-based EP or AW additives.
Here are some of the advances in tube and pipe fabrication equipment and accessories that are now available to help shops make money while meeting demands for more complex geometries, tougher materials, faster speed and higher quality.
CIMPULSE 49MP from Milacron is ideal for turning, drilling, milling, reaming, boring, tapping, and grinding most metals.
