Metal Mates JL-12 is an opaque gel formulated specifically for tube-bending applications. It can be pumped or hand-applied directly to the tube or bending mandrels, leaving a clean coating that will not build up over time.

 

ITW Rocol says it designed the gel to stay where it is applied, eliminating the mess of conventional lubricants. Virtually no cleaning is required before welding, and it is easily cleaned before paint or plating. According to the company, the gel enables cost savings by reducing consumption and improving housekeeping as well as tool or mandrel life.

 

The gel is supplied ready to use and is available in 5- and 55-gallon containers.

    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 simply assume all is well if the alarm doesn't go off.
