Company Info

Unist has been manufacturing Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) solutions for metal cutting since 1957. Unist’s MQL solutions apply a minute amount of high-quality lubricant such as Unist’s Coolube® directly into the cutting tool/work piece interface resulting in decreased fluid usage, cleaner & safer shops and floors, and improved cut quality and tool life. Other benefits include clean, dry chips for easy and more profitable recycling, the elimination of costly coolant treatment equipment and coolant disposal costs, as well as a potential 20-50% increase in production rates

Pairing a Unist system with high-quality, 100% natural, vegetable-based Coolube® lubricant, makes for machining operations which are as friendly to the environment as they are to workers’ skin.

Since 1993, Unist has offered precision lubrication application systems for the metal forming industry. Unist’s Uni-Roller® systems feature a patented internally fed roller design and provide an environmentally friendly solution for applying lubricants to coil stock. The Unist product line is built around the concept of applying lubrication in a precise manner resulting in fluid usage reduction, the elimination of unsightly, dangerous fluid mess, and increased efficiency due to an even and consistent application of fluid.

In 2006 Unist Australia Pty Ltd was founded by John Barker. John had a previous working relationship with Unist Inc. for over 20 years. Today Unist Australia covers the territories of Australia and New Zealand and is helping many progressive companies convert over to Minimal Quantity Lubrication (MQL).

This year (2018) we have added a new look to our web site Unist Australia incorporating an on line shopping link where customers can now buy their Coolube Advanced Metal Cutting Lubricants direct.

The new site makes it much easier for people to navigate to the industry they work in and to find the right products for the right application. A FREE TRIAL button features throughout the site, streamlining our whole connectivity with our customers.
