Saw conversion using our new nozzle configuration from Coolant to Near Dry, no mess, dry chips.

Check out our new nozzle manual.

Previously running on a coolant mixture, this machine created an absolute mess for the operators and the shop floor environment, there was coolant everywhere. Watch how the process has been revolutionized by the use of “Near Dry Sawing” compliments of Unist Australia.

There are many benefits to be gained by employing the Unist “Near Dry Sawing” system. Read about the top ten benefits of NDS.

Drilling 25 mm diameter holes through steel pipe.

Watch how we drill 25 mm diameter holes through toughened steel tube with a wall thickness of 5 mm, the hole is drilled through both walls.

To use traditional coolant would have made an absolute intolerable mess, with coolant running down the tube creating a safety hazard and customer quality issues. The manufacturer here decided to apply Unist’s “Near Dry Drilling” technology, through spindle MQL (minimum quantity lubrication). The drilling cell incorporates two Unist Tornado units that send atomized oil particles down through the drive motor spindle and then through the drill  exiting at the drill tips.

No Mess, Dry chips, extended tool life and no thermal cracking of the carbide tips are just a few of the many benefits gained by employing today’s technology to steel drilling applications. This system runs on Coolube 2210EP at an oil consumption rate of 20 ml per drilling hour.

How to clean up Coolube from parts.

Cleaning residual Coolube from parts

In most cases there should be little if any Coolube left on the part.  If the part has much oil on it, it may be an indication which means the MQL spray needs adjusting. But in the cases where over spray is unavoidable, or there can be no oil on the part at all, Coolube is easy to wash off.

Coolube is oil, so a simple alkaline based detergent is sufficient for cleaning.  Alkaline cleaners are commonly used for cleaning metal and are designed to remove grease and oils. Dish soaps are examples of mild alkaline cleansers that would well work with Coolube, as would most other alkaline based industrial detergents that may already be available in your shop.

New: Stainless Steel Nozzle Tip. Plastic nozzle tips being chewed up? It might be time for something tougher!

Plastic nozzle tips being chewed up? It might be time for something tougher! Available now, our stainless steel nozzle tip provides a robust solution for users that enjoy the maneuverability offered by flexible plastic nozzles, but dislike compromised spray patterns due to the continual abuse of chips. The stainless steel nozzle tip allows users to position the flexible nozzle tip close to the cutting tool without needing to worry about the chips destroying the nozzle tip

Production Machining: Getting the Most from MQL Article from Production Machining

Article written by Production Machining’s Senior Editor, Chris Felix

Machining generates heat, and flood coolant is the common method to alleviate this heat. But flood coolant is a brute force solution that raises a host of issues of its own. Large quantities of coolant require specialized equipment to circulate, filter and test, and the purchase, maintenance and operation of this equipment can be expensive. The use of coolant may also cause thermal shock to carbide tools, resulting in microscopic cracks that weaken the tool and can ultimately lead to tool failure. Water-based coolants are also susceptible to bacterial growth. Biocides help with this issue, but who wants to breathe these biocides as they and the coolant are projected into the air during the cutting process? The fluid also often ends up in the wrong places, such as on floors, equipment and machine operators.

What if there was another way? While flooding the cutting zone with coolant may eliminate the symptoms of the problem (the heat), it does not address one of the main causes of the heat: friction.
