What: Lineup of lubricant technology for machining and grinding hard metals
Who: CIMCOOL (cimcool.com)
Important to note: “We have developed something that is completely new and unique to the industry,” said Tina Hunter, Automotive Product Manager, CIMCOOL. “These fluids work best when really pushed to the limit. The tougher the operation, the better results we see.” She added, “They have outperformed some popular heavy-duty, sulfo-chlorinated oils by up to 300%.”
Pertinent data: Among the synthetic fluids, which don’t contain chlorine, are the following. CIMTECH 627, a water-based fluid for heavy-duty machining and grinding of exotic alloys. Offers better lubricity than sulfo-chlorinated soluble oils. CIMTECH 609-E can be used in operations such as hard metal valve grinding, where it can help reduce chatter, decrease wheel loading, and provide a good finish. CIMTECH 610 is for titanium and hard metal machining, yet it can also be used for aluminum alloy machining.
