Machining Cast Iron - These things have to be aware of
As we know cast iron can be cut in dry without coolant. However, it looks like a disaster in the sank after processing the cast iron. To cut the cast iron is no joke, unless we want our hands go dark and grey like graphite.
To talk about the cast iron, in some cases we found that the pain point for machinists is mainly dust control. As we know cast iron can be cut in dry without coolant. To machining cast iron is no joke, unless we want our hands to go dark and gray like graphite…
Not only that, the dust of cast iron is rusty and forms a solid in the coolant tank once we cut the cast iron. What can we do to get rid of this situation while machining cast iron? Using water-based cutting oils - it can wash away the dust to keep the machine tidy and clean.
What we must be concerned about is the rust preventive ability of cutting oil before purchasing the products for the cast iron. Because without the rust cast iron chips in the coolant tank can help us easily clean.
Hai Lu Jya He, we recommended WILL CH-370 semi-synthetic coolant which has excellent performances for cast iron. On the other hand, an even better thing is that we will work in a cleaner workplace with clean air once we apply the proper products on cast iron.
If you have any concerns and needs or are looking for a proper industrial lubricant, please feel free to contact us or send email to us.
