How to increase tool life by 100X

bueA recent study looking at micromilling  316 L stainless steel with Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) found that it reduces the built-up-edge on a cutting tool and increases the tool life up to 100 times compared to dry micromilling . To achieve results like this it is important to use a high quality lubricant, such as Coolube® , and properly applied it the proper MQL system.  For more details on how these results were achieved you can purchase the study here or if you prefer to try MQL in your shop and experience the results firsthand check out our systems for metalcutting or sign up for a free trial using the form on the right.
