The Incredible Benefits of Using Coolants

A coolant is a mineral based cutting fluid which is mixed with water. For decades, people have been using coolants to remove heat for various metal cutting operations with amazing benefits as explained below.

Improving part quality

Using cutting fluids reduces heat and friction. Removing the heat ensures that the work piece does not expand when carrying out machining operations. Such expansions could result to size variation and could damage the microstructure of the material as well.

Reduces the Tooling Costs

The proper use of cutting fluids improves the lifespan of tools which reduces the tools’ maintenance costs. In turn, the increased tool life reduces the need for tool replacements and downtime and decreases the labor costs. By using coolants, you will spend less on labor and tool maintenance.

Increases the cutting speeds and feeds

During a machining operation there is usually friction and heating, coolants reduce this. Their use allows high feeds and speeds that help to attain optimal cutting conditions.

Improve surface finishes

When you use cutting fluids you help to remove chips. This ensures that the chip isn’t caught between the work piece and tool where it can cause scratches or a poor surface finish.

Reduction of bacterial growth

Bacteria affect cutting oils and it is essential to put in place measures that will reduce their growth. The growth of bacteria can turn your metal cutting fluid into a rancid one. While use of additives in coolants will reduce the bacteria’s effect, it is very important that you use pure water for coolant mixing.

Prevention of rust and corrosion

Cutting fluids protect the work piece, machines and tooling against corrosion and rust. These fluids usually leave a residual film long after the water evaporates. Prevention of corrosion increases the lifespan of your tools.

Changing from Alucobond/Composite panel to Solid Aluminium Sheet

Do you find yourself having to Route 3mm solid Aluminium sheet in preference to Alucobond/Composite panel? If you are experiencing any of the following you need to talk to our John Barker (Managing Director) of Unist Australia.

  • Ragged cutting
  • Burning out cutters
  • Breaking router bits
  • Terrible surface finish
  • Just the inability to get the job done

We understand your problem, you need to lubricate the routing cutter with our 3 nozzle Coolubricator.

For help on this matter call John Barker on 02 8850 2022 or email [email protected].
