Cutting Fluid

Cutting Fluid

As we know, there are many details should be noticed while metalworking processing. We use cutting fluids in order to dissipating heat generated in the operation, reduce friction and remove chips or swarf away from the cutting zone.

In the market, there are many kind of cutting fluids, every cutting fluid seems like very similar. And what difference between of them? And what factors will affect processing performance? How to maintain cutting fluids? How to choose the right and suitable cutting oils?

The articles are our know-how and experienced for your reference as below. It may solve the problems which you have to deal with it, and even can help you extend coolant and tool life.

Cutting oil (cutting fluid) also name as Coolant or lubricant is used for improving the cutting condition and also the tool life. It can be in liquid as well as gaseous form. Read More
Neat cutting oils are based on mineral oils, and blended with additives, and used for cutting without further dilution as supplied by the manufacturer. Besides, neat cutting oils have superior lubricating and cutting performance which prevents corrosion and rusting and also increases the life of the machinery and tools made of metal.... Read More
Water Soluble cutting fluids are form an emulsion when added to water. These emulsifiable oils are mineral oil based concentrates, which contain emulsifiers that allow them to mix with water and form a milky white emulsion. They also contain additives to improve their lubricating properties, rust and corrosion inhibitors and a biocide to help control foul smell. Read More
The most important requirements to be met by coolants in metal cutting are reduction of tool wear, a high-quality surface finish and economy of use. There are water-based cutting fluids and neat cutting oil which used for processing metals and machineries. Read More
Soluble cutting fluids and semi-synthetic cutting fluids which contain emulsifiers that allow them to mix with water and form a milky white emulsion. They also contain additives to improve their lubricating properties, rust and corrosion inhibitors and a biocide to help control foul smell. Read More
As we all know that a precise concentration is a key point for a stable emulsion and optimized lubrication. But, there’s another critical key:WATER QUALITY. Unlike neat oils, which are used in metalworking operations in undiluted form, water-miscible fluids are normally diluted with water to form an emulsion. Read More
Is your CNC coolant constantly foaming in the sump (coolant tank) or even sometimes foaming out of the sump? One of the most common cutting fluid problems encountered by manufacturers (users) is COOLANT FOAMING which you feel stuck and frustrated. Read More
Metalworking fluids(MWFs), mainly used as 2–10% emulsions in water which are among the commonest chemical exposures. Most MWFs are mixtures of base oil and auxiliary substances such as emulsifiers, antimicrobial agents, corrosion inhibitors, extreme pressure additives, etc. which are strongly alkaline, and contact with skin can remove natural oils and damage the proteins in the skin's protective outer layer so that skin's water content is diminished, and the result is dry, scaly, inflamed skin....

If you’ve worked in a machine shop or metalworking facility for any length of time, you have no doubt encountered a variety of unpleasant odors. Perhaps you’ve noticed that “rotten egg” or “Monday morning” smell (bacteria) when metalworking coolants are allowed to “rest” over the weekend, usually under a blanket of surface tramp oil. Regardless of any situations, your nose is alerting you to the serious problem of microbiological growth in your water-based metalworking fluids. Bacteria grow in coolant sumps, producing a nasty smell and biomass that can clog filters and screens.... Read More
