Way Lubrication Reduces Metal-to-Metal Wear
Milacron’s Cimcool brand has released a series of Milpro process oils for slideway, hydraulic and gear oil applications.
Milacron’s Cimcool brand has released a series of Milpro process oils for slideway, hydraulic and gear oil applications, which have been successfully tested for compatibility with metalworking fluids.
Milpro way oils are lubricating oils designed to reduce friction and “stick-slip” on machine tool slideways. They provide a uniform oil film for smooth table motion even after extended shutdowns. The oils are fortified with extreme pressure and tackiness additives to reduce metal-to-metal wear and provide lubrication on all plain bearing slideways regardless of table load or way speed. Sure-Way 68 has increased demulsibility characteristics, enabling the way lubricant to separate more efficiently from the metalworking fluid, extending the life of metalworking fluids.
Milpro hydraulic oils are designed to transmit power, provide lubrication and protect gear systems. They are formulated to pass Milacron’s specifications as well as industry guidelines for hydraulic oil applications.
Milpro gear oils provide lubrication, cooling and protection against oxidation. They are commonly used in differential gears and standard transmission applications in industrial machinery. The gear oils offer extreme temperature and pressure protection to prevent wear, pitting, spalling, scoring, scuffing and other types of damage that result in equipment failure and downtime.
The ability to create custom add-ins using the Esprit CAM system’s API and Microsoft’s Visual Basic has significantly reduced thread programming times at this manufacturer of oil and gas industry components.
This CNC function enables an operator to control chatter when repairing threads on components such as oilfield pipes.
CAMCO, a Schlumberger Company (Houston, Texas), is a manufacturer of oil field components consisting of packers and safety valves. Due to the size of the parts, the company recently replaced many of its manual lathes with Weiler manual/CNC flat bed lathes.
