Minimum quantity lubrication, or mql, is a process that involves applying a very small, even microscopic amount of lubricant to a metal component in order to reduce wear and friction. This technique is often used in manufacturing and metal fabrication where the use of excess lubricant can be difficult or impractical.
MagLube provides MQL systems and eco-friendly lubricants that make your manufacturing and metalworking process more efficient and cost-effective
MQL Systems Provide Excellent Value
MagLube offers alternatives to traditional means of machining lubricants for industrial lubrication systems. Petroleum or synthetic based products typically mix 10-20 parts with water to flood the work-piece and tool to prevent heat. These traditional machining lubricants, or metalworking fluid/flood coolants, have little lubricating properties. However, the concept is to cool the tool and work-piece by means of quenching or carrying the heat away after it has already occurred.
Most Popular Aluminum Lubricant for CNC Machining – MagLube LD – 300L
Our most popular aluminum lubricant is MagLube LD-300L. Many of our customers have told us this lubricant is far superior to all other aluminum lubricants on the market. We couldn’t agree more! Our R&D, trial and error during the creation process of this product resulted in a perfect blend for all aluminum machining.
This is a non-ferrous lubricant and is a room temperature liquid possessing low viscosity, light color, and excellent lubrication properties. It will not attack rubber or plastics. It is used on critical applications as it will not leave any mess or sticky residue.
LD-300L has excellent lubrication properties that make it useful in a wide variety of lubrication applications. Transparent color and low pour point make LD-300L particularly useful in processing of aluminum as well as the textile industry. Other applications include but are not limited to cutting tool lubrication in metalworking as well as woodworking, chain lubrication, roll forming, medical instruments, food processing machinery.
It can be purchased in 1-gallon containers, 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums and 250-gallon totes.
Eco Friendly CNC Machine Lubricants by MagLube
We have a couple of CNC lubricants that are perfect for CNC machining and milling. Many of our customers prefer our MagLube LD-300L for CNC machining. But depending on the type milling and cutting you’re doing… and depending on the materials being used, our multi-purpose MagLube MD-200 may be what you’re looking for.
If you’re needing a non-ferrous lubricant when working with plastics and specific types of metals… our MagLube LD-300A may be perfect for your needs.
MagLube Machining Lubricants for Metalworking
MagLube offers alternatives to traditional means of machining lubricants for industrial lubrication systems. Petroleum or synthetic based products typically mix 10-20 parts with water to flood the work-piece and tool to prevent heat.
These traditional machining lubricants, or metalworking lubrication systems and fluid, have little lubricating properties. However, the concept is to cool the tool and work-piece by means of quenching or carrying the heat away after it has already occurred.
Food Grade Lubricant – MagLube FC-500
NSF H1 registered and approved for incidental food contact
MagLube’s world class solution for food processing facilities is our MagLube FC-500. The FC-500 lubricant bonds vegetable fatty acids to a stable polyol scaffold to significantly improve the high temperature stability and uses safe additives to provide corrosion resistance and excellent lubricating properties.
This lubricant is perfect for any food processing facility running conveyors and machinery with chains. It is an H1 class lubricant, sometimes referred to as an “above the line” lubricant. That’s important because there’s often incidental food contact, making it critical that it is non-toxic and biodegradable.
In these applications it’s extremely important that the lubricant delivery system apply a minimal amount of lubricant to accomplish the desired technical effect on the equipment. That’s why our MagLube custom designed and engineered MQL systems are a perfect fit for this type of application.
