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.

    Systems designed to put out fires inside machine tools can provide a level of protection that external systems such as overhead sprinklers cannot. They cost a small percentage of the investment represented by today’s CNC machines and certainly far less than repairing major damage caused by a fire.
