Materials, Coolants & Lubricants

First line of defence against metal swarf

Eclipse Magnetics has provided a hack saw blade manufacturing facility in China with a magnetic filter Combatting Metal Swarf in Creep Feed Grinder

The creep feed grinder is used to manufacture the hand hacksaw blades from M2 steel. Eclipse Magnetics installed the AutoMag Skid on the grinding machine at the very first stage of the filtration process to capture and remove ferrous particles from the coolant, therefore keeping it cleaner. The reduction in contamination reduces the risk of wear, damage and failure in critical components.

Overcoming Difficult Legislative Issues And Improving Tool Life

Historically, the metalworking industry has relied on traditional formalin donor biocide technology to offer equipment the best possible sump life.  Formaldehyde is a chemical compound which occurs naturally in the environment as a by-product of metabolic processes in humans, animals and through the natural decay process of plant species.

Marching On With Huge New Investment

FUCHS Lubricants, a leader in industrial and metalworking fluids, has continued to build for the future by investing millions of pounds into new technology.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, FUCHS Lubricants UK  will house a new raw materials warehouse and benefit from a range of innovative manufacturing plant machinery as part of a cash injection of more than £10 million.

Material Developments In Spring Production And The Use Of Elgiloy In Industrial Springs

Discussed by Chris Petts, M.D of Lee Spring Ltd

What lies ahead in the realm of spring manufacture – well amongst others we at Lee Spring are constantly refining our designs and have recently introduced our ranges of Lite Pressure™ and Bantam™ Mini Springs, along with LeeP™ Plastic Composite Springs. In particular though, it is often the choice of material which gives us most thought for the future as it shows the way forward in spring technology.
