]]>Coolant in CNC Machines – What Is It and Why It Is Used?
Thu, 23 Feb 2023 19:29:36 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1532Written by Peter Jacobs, CNC Masters During machining operations, overheating can have detrimental effects on the workpiece and the equipment, which could be avoided by cooling them down post-usage. Therefore, cooling is crucial for most machines to function efficiently and effectively. Hence, this article covers a wide range of aspects related to the usage of coolants in CNC machining…
]]>Considerations for Coolant Selection
Tue, 21 Jun 2022 17:32:55 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1372Finding the optimal metalworking fluid is a difficult task because no fluid is “one-size-fits-all.” Each shop has its own unique set up of machines, operations, metals, etc. Operators have to consider many factors before selecting the optimal fluids or fluids for their shop. The optimal fluids should successfully perform the following core functions: Additionally, there are secondary functions…
]]>Understanding Multipurpose Greases
Tue, 26 Apr 2022 18:59:19 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1314Since the invention of the wheel, operators have used grease to help run their bearings. Grease technology remained similar until the industrial revolution, where heavy machinery and advancing technology required lubricating grease to keep up. In the last few decades, grease technology has advanced so much that there is probably a grease tailor-made for any application. However…
]]>How Long is Lubricant’s Shelf Life?
Tue, 15 Mar 2022 17:49:52 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1291When buying lubricants, you have to consider how long they will last. For high-volume users, this is not as much of an issue compared to smaller-volume users. High-volume users’ regularly consumer and reorder lubricants and typically have systems in place to monitor usage and spending. Small-volume users might be spread a drum or two of a lubricant through the course of a year.

Tue, 01 Feb 2022 16:43:35 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1249When cleaning finished machine parts, manufacturers have to meet the increasingly stringent cleanliness tolerances, while also operating a cost-effective cleaning process. Old standards no longer apply and manufacturers have to evaluate their operations to select the best cleaning process. Just utilizing best practices and monitoring your tank is not enough. The first thing that should be…
]]>How to Manage your Metalworking Fluids
Tue, 04 Jan 2022 16:58:20 +0000https://www.twinoils.com/?p=1231Metalworking fluids may not contribute that much to your manufacturing costs, but when fluids begin to fail or not work as intended, the costs could be astronomical. With the increasing costs of more technological fluids and rising disposal costs, managing your fluid and fluid consumption is more important than ever. Managing your fluids and dedicating a fluid management program could pay…
