If you’re a metal worker who uses metal working fluids (MWFs) as lubrication during your machining process, you may want to consider a more efficient method. Introducing near dry machining or minimum quantity lubrication (MQL). Unlike flood cooling with MWFs that involves flooding the tool and workpiece with chemicals, MQL is a micro-lubrication process that can improve your machining operations in many ways.
Flood cooling with MWFs requires additional steps such as recirculating, filtering, testing, and treating the coolant to avoid bacterial contamination, and cleaning up the wet, soggy cutting chips, which can pose health hazards to machinists.
Optimal Lubricant Delivery Systems
Near dry machining eliminates these steps by using only minimal amounts of lubricant delivered to the exact spot where friction occurs during the machining process. This results in less lubricant needed, saving on costs and time.
The cutting chips produced after a run with near dry machining are dry, allowing for simple cleanup by sweeping or vacuuming into a recycle container. This creates an additional revenue stream by recycling the chips. In contrast, flood cooling with MWFs can cause health risks such as skin irritations and serious health issues from inhaling the mist created by the flood cooling process.
Eliminate The Health Risks Of Toxic Chemicals
Near dry machining eliminates these health risks by delivering microscopic amounts of an eco-friendly and organic lubricant, eliminating the mist and the flooding of the tool and workpiece.
