You can eliminate flood coolant

Large scale reduction in fluid usage is  being accomplished through Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL), also known as Near Dry Machining (NDM).

By adding MQL systems to CNC machines and selecting appropriate tooling and processes, MQL is capable of creating significant economies and process improvements in metal removal operations, helping both the environment and the bottom line. In the same way processes are determined for flood cooling operations, there are multiple factors to be evaluated to create an optimum MQL process combination.

Speeds, feeds, materials used, tool design, fluid types, and chip evacuation are among the most important considerations. There are some basic usage design characteristics which result in successful MQL integration.

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].
