The Aston Martin of Blaser Swisslube

In 2021, the long-awaited Bond film “No Time to Die” finally arrived in cinemas. Together with the Bond films, the Aston Martin, too, has acquired cult status. Reason enough to pro-duce an Aston Martin in the Blaser Technology Center with minimum quantity lubrication (MQL), thought Christoph Fankhauser, Product Manager, Neat Oils at Blaser. The car has also been equipped with headlight nozzles – special effects included.

The Aston Martin DB5 was machined from aluminum (AW-6082 AlSi1MgMn) at the Blaser Technology Center. Fittingly, the minimum quantity lubrication technology will mostly be used in the automotive industry, and consists of an oil and air mixture. Here, the mixture is guided through the spindle and the tool to reach the cutting edge. “In the meantime, almost all materials can be machined using MQL. We decided on aluminum as the material and on the right fluid for the material: Vascomill MMS FA 2,” said Christoph Fankhauser, explaining the approach taken here.

Following on from production on the GROB G552, the MI6 agent’s cult vehicle itself will become an aerosol spraying unit. The nozzles—an adjustment made to both machine guns—spray Vascomill MMS FA 2 out of the headlights. In order to improve the visibility of the aerosol, the dosage was higher than usual, and above all several light sources were used in the machine.
