Oelheld's SintoGrind TC-X 630 Grinding Oil Maintains Viscosity

The grinding oil TC-X 630 has been added to Oelheld’s SintoGrind series as an entry-level product. SintoGrind TC-X 630 is made from the latest generation of gas-to-liquid (GTL) base oils. GTL technology converts natural gas into high-quality liquid products that would otherwise be made from crude oil. GTL-base oils are colorless and odorless. They contain almost none of the impurities found in crude oil such as sulfur, nitrogen and aromatics.
SintoGrind TC-X 630 is designed for flute grinding, profile grinding, and outer- and inner-diameter grinding. The oil is well-suited for a variety of materials including tungsten carbide, high speed steel (HSS), polycrystalline diamond (PCD), cubic boron nitride (CBN), cermet and ceramics. SintoGrind TC-X 630 contains no hazardous elements and exhibits stable viscosity over a wide temperature spectrum, the company says.

If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult. RPM Carbide Die, however, has worked the material for nearly 40 years and, as specializing seems increasingly to be the order of the day, this northern Ohio shop is in a good position to thrive.
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
