3 Qualities to Look for in an Industrial Lubricant

Industrial machinery is far from low-maintenance. In addition to frequent cleanings and inspections, most large-scale cutting tools need to receive regular lubrication, which can be done through the use of spray mist systems. Without proper lubrication, milling machines, band saws, and other prominent cutting equipment are unable to perform to their full potential. The right industrial lubricant can extend the life of your cutting tools and ensure that they produce meticulously accurate cuts on a consistent basis. If you find you’re in need of a new industrial lubricant, consider the following factors when making your decision.

1. Cleaning Prowess

Much to the delight of operators who are pressed for time, certain industrial lubricants double as cleaner. If you’re tired of cleaning and lubrication being separate processes, it’s highly recommended that you look for a lubricant that also functions as a cleaner – such as our MagLube product line and spray mist systems. As an added bonus, our lubricants are well-equipped to evacuate dry chips from tool paths, effectively saving equipment operators a fair amount of cleanup time.

2. Ease of Application

In the interest of operator convenience, the lubricant you select should be easy to apply to the machinery. At the end of a long workday, expending additional energy on cleaning up equipment can become a cumbersome chore. Fortunately, our convenient MagLube spray mist systems ensure hassle-free lubricant application.

3. Light on Residue

The most effective lubricants and spray mist systems are the ones that enable tools to perform at maximum efficiency. When a particular lubricant leaves sticky residue behind, it’s liable to have the opposite effect. Anyone on the hunt for a residue-light lubricant is urged to consider what MagLube has to offer! Thinner in consistency than water soluble coolant, our impressive line of industrial lubricants won’t leave your cutting tools caked in residue.

If you’re determined to get the best possible performance out of your industrial cutting applications, there’s no way around regular lubrication. However, that not all lubricants are created equal. When you’re in need of new lubricants and spray mist systems, MagLube lubricants offer the cleaning prowess, easy application, and thin consistency you’ll need.
