ExxonMobil’s recently introduced range of Mobilcut water soluble metalworking fluids, are helping the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 cars to gain a competitive edge on the track. Watch this supercool video link from the EngineerLive Website!
ASTM has created a new work item - WK34693 - to revise standard E2657. The purpose of the revision is to harmonize the definition of "endotoxin" in this standard, and in two others in which the term appears. All this means a llittle more work for Dr. Passman, so that that should keep him out of trouble for a while.
Introducing Gardocool 1000AF, engineered with Amine-Free technology, allowing for high levels of lubricity and corrosion resistance without the use of petroleum oils or volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The chemistry behind Chentall's latest innovation in aqueous metalworking coolants reduces harmful wastes and odors while increasing positive environmental and performance benefits to the metalworking process.
STLE is hosting an upcoming certificate course in Southfield, Michigan, on November 1-3. Based on your previous interest or educational experience with Metalworking Fluids, we wanted to advise you of this upcoming opportunity and invite you to take part in an educational opportunity that matches up with your interests and career goals.
This article was published in February of this year by authors from Lagos State University in Nigeria. The paper compares the effect on a mild steel when the metalworking fluid is varied. Test were run using water, palm kernal oil, water soluble oil, and even dry cutting. Tests were run at 355 rpm using Tungsten Carbide and High Speed Steel tooling. The resulting surface hardness of the samples was compared and related to the metalworking fluid and tooling.
METALWORKING FLUID MAGAZINE has added a seperate page for metalworking fluid testing STANDARDS. We have also create a seperate page for US PATENTS related to metalworking fluids. Still coming is a seperate REGULATIONS page. All of these are located under the TECHNOLOGY tab.
