The metalworking industry covers a great many procedures for manufacturing metal components. Metalworking, one of the most important industry segments, is known for its continuous improvement of the production process. The ever increasing demand for high quality products requires a constant and flexible automation of the metalworking processes and introduction of numerically controlled machines as well as new materials for tools and fluids for cooling. All these developments have led to faster machines, higher permissible cutting temperatures and faster cutting speeds.

Metalworking industry uses huge quantity of cooling fluids and the health aspects of working with these fluids are as important as the need for tools and metal cutting fluids to have a long service life.

Metalworking processes can be divided into two types: MACHINING and DEFORMATION. Metalworking fluids are used in both types of processes. Metalworking fluids perform the two essential functions of COOLING and LUBRICATION. Use of correct metalworking fluid is vital for extending tool life, for providing higher dimensional accuracy and for a better surface finish, leading to efficient production.

TURNING

The turning industry is closely related to the car manufacturing industry, renowned for its requirements for just-in-time, fault-free production at the lowest possible cost. Turning Industry, usually considered as the place of large quantities, the turner's shops have lately become also very accurate. Indeed, the modern high-speed turning can achieve surface roughness similar to the one obtained with the best grinding results a few years ago. Even in this field it is thus important to carry out the debarring and finishing processes in a reliable and automated way, complying with geometry and tolerance requirements. Lubricants are formulated to meet manufacturers’ productivity constraints and the high-quality machining, safety and environmental requirements.

Products for All Applications:

1. Machining Cutting Oil
used in metal machining for a variety of reasons such as improving tool life, reducing work piece thermal deformation, improving surface finish and flushing away chips from the cutting zone.

2. Grinding Cutting Oil
used for conventional and high-speed grinding and honing applications across a wide range of materials and operations. They can be used in centralized systems or in individual machine tools.

3. Finishing Soluble Oil
provides maximum tool life and promotes fine finishes.

4. Quenching
facilitates hardening of steel by controlling heat transfer during quenching, and it enhances wetting of steel during quenching to minimize the formation of undesirable thermal and transformational gradients which may lead to increased distortion and cracking.

5. Anti-rust
protective lubricating oils formulated with highly refined anti-rust additives for general use as rust protective coating on iron and steel

6. Degreasing
cleans away drilling mud, dirt, oil, and grease from metal parts with little or no attack to the underlying surface, cleans up all types of spills including crude oil, heavy gas oils, and chemical.

BEARING MANUFACTURERS

Bearing manufacturing industry has many requirements: high-quality mass production, reduced production-cycle time, continual production-cost optimization, safe operation and respect for the environment. For bearings the choice of lubricant depends on the application and has a decisive impact on the function and service life of bearings. High temperatures, for example, can easily increase corrosion if the lubricant is not compatible with the bearing material. Selection of the right lubricant for the application will also involve the viscosity, compatibility with plastics and seals, reduced start-up wear and thermal behaviour.

AERONAUTICS CONSTRUCTION

Achieving very high machining quality levels as well as meeting needs for competitiveness is an everyday challenge in the aircraft manufacturing industry. Production constraints such as very tight tolerance ranges and the reduction of production cycle times make it difficult to achieve these objectives. Using high-performance metalworking fluids help to achieve these goals. Choosing the right lubricant can help eliminate downtime and reduce operating costs by ensuring that each equipment gives the best output and the lubricants stay contaminant-free.
