Metal Removal Fluids are a critical component in metalworking processes. Acting as a lubricant and coolant, these fluids reduce friction between the work¬piece and the machine tool. This diminishes frictional heat while removing the heat produced minimizing the problems associated with heat build-up including tool life and productivity.
Metalworking – Components: Label-Free Coolant Technology Eliminates Dermatitis Machining Aluminum Componentsposts2020-04-13T14:39:11-04:00
A global supplier of custom die cast parts across various industries was having serious problems with their machining coolant. This U.S. based customer was experiencing foul odors in the sumps while operators were suffering from dermatitis. The competitive product was also leaving residue on the machines and parts described by the operators as a “greasy” film.
Maximum fire resistance, enhanced job site safety, reduced downtime, lower maintenance costs
QUAKERCOOL® 770 is a high-performance mineral oil free micro-emulsion ideally suited to all operations demanding premium surface finish quality and consistent lubrication. Best suited for the machining of ferrous metals including stainless steels and other high-nickel, high-chromium ferrous alloys.
Stainless Steel And Copper Machining: Increased Tool Life By 50% At Milling Operation And 100% At Turning Operationposts2020-03-16T14:52:47-04:00
Based on regular visits and technical support together with a local distributor, Quaker Houghton was able to analyze challenges the customer faced and presented QUAKERCOOL® 7360 BFF. QUAKERCOOL® 7360 BFF at 8% concentration was introduced into two CNC machines, one machining stainless steel, and the other machining pure copper. Tool life, surface finish, and top-ups (kept at 2%) were closely monitored over a three month period. During the trial period, no operating issues were noticed and the pH stayed very stable at 9.20-9.30.
QUAKERCOOL® 7350 BFF is a high performance micro-emulsion ideally suited to all operations where high surface finish quality and high lubrication is needed. QUAKERCOOL® 7350 BFF is ideal for general purpose machining of most engineering materials and is recommended for light to medium metalworking operations on cast iron, steel and aluminum.
After considering the demanding nature of the various operations and materials involved in the customer’s process, Quaker Houghton presented QUAKERCOOL® 7350 BFF as a solution. This product was chosen based on the following benefits
This Case Study and the solutions gained were achieved through cooperation with L.E.S., a Quaker Houghton distributor in France. Quaker Houghton introduced QUAKERCOOL® 3608 HFF into 25% of the machines, and L.E.S. made regular visits to provide technical support, fluid maintenance and concentration monitoring.
