Lubricants, Coolants, Metalworking Fluids

This category includes substances used in the metalworking process to lubricate, cool, and facilitate the cutting process. Lubricants are used at the interface between a tool’s cutting edge and the chip, preventing the chip from being welded to the tool. Liquid coolants are used to remove significant amounts of heat generated by heavy cutting over long periods of time. Liquid coolants are often delivered via through-spindle coolant systems, which route coolant through an internal passage inside the spindle and directly to the cutting interface. Metalworking fluids are used to keep the environment around a workpiece at a stable temperature. Metalworking fluids can include straight oil (fluid made mostly of mineral or vegetable oils), soluble oil (emulsifiable oil made up from 30-85 percent refined lubricant base oil and emulsifiers), semisynthetic fluids (fluids containing a lower amount of severely refined base oil), and full synthetic fluids (formulations that do not include petroleum).

How to Choose Induction Welding with Chillers – and Why

Pfannenberg

This article from Pfannenberg Inc. explains the hazards that can be involved with cooling units that use water or water/glycol mixtures. But an air-cooled liquid chiller removes concentrated heat from process equipment without the condensation risks, while also solving a variety of other issues.

Designing a Metalworking Coolant for Multiple Applications – in Half the Time

Without DoE, chemists would have taken twice as long to develop the extremely biostable HOCUT 8000 coolant and been lucky to achieve its same levels of performance in extending sump life and eliminating the need for costly sump-side additives. Here’s an inside look at how they did it.
