Complementary Technologies Make MQL More Accessible

An add-on system for minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) combines an external pump with repeatable control over nozzle position.


Understanding MQL

Minimum quantity lubricant can save money, improve tool life and improve the part finish. But it may involve changes to both the equipment and the processing strategy.


Closed Loop System For High Speed Spindles

As high speed machining has become more common, machine tool spindle technology has continued to advance. Spindle lubrication has been a special area of concern, and significant improvements have been appearing steadily.


Troubleshooting Your Way Oil System

An expensive lesson that many shops learn too late is that the automatic oil system on their CNC machine tool may not be completely automatic. Since the automatic oil system is designed to give a warning when the oil tank is empty, many machinists s...


Ozone Provides Solution To Bacteria In Coolants

Bacterial growth in metalworking fluids eventually leads to machine downtime. Furthermore, shop owners and plant managers see an increased cost of purchasing replacement fluids and the disposal of spent fluids.


Grinding Spindles Take Grease To Higher Speed

Conventional wisdom has it that grease lubrication is fine for grinding spindles so long as speeds stay fairly low. As speed approaches 10,000 to 15,000 rpm, however, then heat becomes a major problem, leaving little choice but to go to an oil-and-a...


Low-Pressure Spraying Coolant System Keeps Prototype Shop Out Of The Fog

Imagine a machine, with parts your shop helped to manufacture, traveling on a one-way trip for millions of miles, to land and gather information on another planet. Now, imagine your coolant ruining all that.
