The customer had been machining this Nickle Alloy dry (No Coolant) because to add coolant to the process would have meant mess everywhere, a cost the customer wasn't prepared to tolerate.
Watch how we have applied Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) to a high production vertical machining center. Many benefits are to be realized by replacing your flood coolant with an MQL further more this does not have to be an expensive exercise. This short video shows a two nozzle Unist Coolubricator applying micro oil droplets to the tool and cutting areas externally. Don't let the competition have the cutting edge on your machining operations, stop wasting money and call John Barker today to discuss how we can make MQL work for you.
Development of very thin carbide tip and cermet tipped saw blades have attracted industries to use them for mass metal sawing applications as material cutting wastage or kerf loss is very similar to that of band saw machines. With the technological development of the blade, micro mist spray oil and high accuracy gear boxes, the […]
Biobased Lubricant for Green Machining What is a bio based product? Bio based products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials. These products provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products and include a diverse range of offerings such as lubricants, detergents, inks, fertilizers, and bio plastics. For the purposes of […]
Here we show how we can simply modify an existing band saw that had been traditionally using flood coolant and transform it into a MQL (Minimal Quantity Lubrication) application. This modification is inexpensive to implement and can be fitted up quite easily, the transformation is remarkable, watch the short video to see how we do it. There are many […]
Fluid mixing technology This Uni-Blend™ System is designed to accurately mix water with concentrated fluids in any ratio from 1:1 to 50:1 and deliver the mixture under pressure to a customer-supplied piping network. The Uni-Blend™ System automatically mixes batches and maintains a reserve supply of up to 50 gallons per ratio. Up to three batches […]
The owner of this saw wanted to eliminate the messy coolant that was causing skin irritation to his operators, so he called Unist in to fix it. Of cause there are many more benefits when you get rid of coolant, for a start coolant is a toxic waste product and has to be disposed of […]
