Thru-The-Tool: Maximising MQL

In recent years, the range of tools with internal coolant routing has dramatically increased.  Applying a high efficiency, clean lubricant such as Coolube™ in spray form enhances the benefits of any Thru-The-Tool application.  Unist manufactures a range of Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) systems which bring the full benefits of MQL to your Thru-The-Tool application.

Benefits of Unist Thru-The-Tool MQL Systems:

  • Improved housekeeping (eliminates coolant mess)
  • No recycling, filtration or costly disposal of coolants.
  • Expanding compressed air cools tooling and evacuates chips
  • Lubricant application “leads” the tool’s cutting edge through the cut
  • Coolube lubricant handles the tremendous pressures of high speed operations such as gun drilling, boring, etc.
  • Coolube clings to the cutting surface providing drastic heat reduction that lasts
  • Coolube lubricates the flutes, holes, and chips and improves hole quality in drilling
  • Can replace high pressure flood systems
  • Often dramatic improvements in tool life and surface finish with no speed or feed limits
