Minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) is used more in Europe than here in the States due to stricter environmental regulations across the pond. However, MQL has a proven track record in working just as well as, or better than, traditional flood coolants for certain applications. Plus, shops don’t have to deal with negative consequences like health hazards, disposal costs and pricey circulation equipment. If you’re interested in learning more about MQL, consider signing up to receive the “MQL Handbook” offered by Unist, the Grand Rapids, Michigan manufacturer of MQL systems for metalworking applications.
The handbook explains how MQL differs from conventional coolant methods, how it works, what equipment is needed, how to develop an MQL process and what fluids work best for it. You can check out a preview of the handbook here, and sign up to receive the handbook here.blog comments powered by Disqus
