Metalworking Fluids

Metalworking fluids are the oil- and water-based liquids that facilitate turning, milling, drilling and grinding. These fluids are often lumped together under the general term "coolant," though many metalworking fluids do not primarily perform a cooling effect. Rather, the primary value of many metalworking fluids is to provide lubricity that extends cutting performance and tool life, and to assist in clearing chips out of the way of the cut. Metalworking fluid technology has advanced considerably in recent years, to the extent that finding just the right cutting fluid for a particular machining process can dramatically increase efficiency or productivity.

Coolant’s Impact on Face Milling Aluminum

Testing shows that understanding the interplay among cutting speed, tool wear and cutting power can lead to more informed evaluation of metalworking fluids and more predictable machining.

How to Capture Liquid Smoke

Liquid smoke droplets are almost 30 times smaller than average mist droplets, and capturing them requires a very efficient and well-thought-out mist collecting system.
