When the metal chips curl in front of the tool surface, the barrier separating the chips from the workpiece
is the metal cutting fluid or cutting lubricant. Because drill slots are different from broach teeth,
each metal cutting process has different fluid technology requirements.
By carefully balancing a complex matrix of variables, including viscosity, heat transfer, film strength,
surface tension and chemical lubricity, metalworkers work to maximize the performance of each
tool and reduce the need for multiple metal cutting fluids to even lower levels.
Fluid solutions that optimize metal cutting performance must also provide a safe working
environment that protects machine tools and minimizes maintenance. All metal cutting
fluids - straight oil or water dilution - are supported by technology and applications to
keep the manufacturing environment safe and trouble-free, developed in full
compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations.
