WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

  • The Basics

    • Metalworking fluid components and formulations

    • Water quality

    • Workpiece metallurgies

    • Tool materials

    • Machining processes, Safety, health and the environment

  • Performance Factors and Laboratory Tests

  • Laboratory Tests vs. The Machining Environment

  • Failure Modes and Causes

    • Insufficient lubrication (poor tool life, part finish)

    • Insufficient cooling

    • Corrosion or staining

    • Excessive foaming

    • Loss of fluid stability

    • Odors and slime

    • Dermatitis, skin sensitization and eye/nose/throat irritation

  • Reducing the Risk of Premature Failure

    • Understand the machining process

    • Choose the correct formulation

    • Control the water quality

    • Maintain the correct dilution concentration

    • Remove tramp oil regularly

    • Regularly monitor pH, bacteria and fungi
