Metalworking Fluids Address Increasing Demands


Driven by increasing performance demands, including evolving health, safety and environmental standards, Quaker Chemical Corporation has recently introduced a portfolio of metal removal emulsion technology to the North American market.

Coolant’s Impact on Aluminum Face Milling


Manufacturers of parts like automotive engine blocks and cylinder heads mill a lot of aluminum. Typically, these operations involve taking light passes at the most aggressive speeds and feeds possible. The goal is to increase cutting speeds enough to boost productivity without exceeding the force and power limits of the machine and cutting tools. The better the understanding of the interplay of cutting speed, tool edge wear and required cutting power, and how the chosen metalworking fluid formulation impacts all of these factors, the more successful this endeavor is likely to be.
