Oelheld's SintoGrind HHS-X 1400 Oil Benefits HSS Grinding
Oelheld’s SintoGrind HSS-X 1400 grinding fluid is said to fill a gap in the market for high-performance fluids for high speed steel (HSS) applications. The oil is formulated with modern gas-to-liquid (GTL) base oils. GTL oils do not display the negatives of mineral-oil-derived base oils, while also providing longer service life and higher temperature tolerance, the company says. SintoGrind HSS-X 1400 is suitable for flute, thread, profile, internal and external cylindrical grinding of steel materials such as HSS, PM and medical steels. The low-foaming, low-misting fluid is said to prevent surface burning and inhibit burr development. It also offers high filterability.
This CNC function enables an operator to control chatter when repairing threads on components such as oilfield pipes.
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.
With their strong attention to routine housekeeping, it's not surprising that this shop carefully researched all methods for removing tramp oil from coolant in machine sumps. 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.
