Recommended for use in food and medical applications that require machining, drilling and tapping, Accu-Lube FG-2000 is a vegetable-based, environmentally safe metalworking oil available from ITW Rocol North America. The lubricant is suited for sawing solids with diameters as wide as 6" as well as virtually any sized tubing, the company says. Furthermore, the lubricant provides high levels of lubricity to the cutting edge of virtually any tool. Cleanup and disposal are virtually eliminated because the lubricant is consumed in the cutting process. The company says the lubricant eliminates flood coolant, enables long-term cost savings and provides longer tool life.

If tramp oil is allowed to build up in the coolant, the resulting shop odor, smoke generation and unpleasant conditions for the operators will quickly undermine all efforts to keep a clean shop and maintain an optimum working environment.
