Are You A Lightweight Or Do You Have Strength?
Sheet Metal Lubricants Are A Vehicle To Both

Need better fuel economy? You’ve gotta lower weight. Need a 5-Star Crash Rating? You gotta have a strong body. These are the drivers leading to the use of advanced steel and aluminum sheet metal alloys in high volume automotive body construction. Although both types of materials offer significant advantages over the mild steels used in the past, these new grades cannot be consistently formed into complex shapes using conventional practices. Proper lubrication is needed to aid in the formability, but needs to be targeted for the specific sheet metal and forming operation. This talk will cover opportunities and challenges associated with these new options in body construction and the role sheet metal lubes can play.

Polartech EA 700: Unique Low Foam Emulsifier

Environmental pressures have stimulated innovation in the materials used by the Aerospace and Automotive industries. The demand for more fuel efficient vehicles has in turn led to demand for materials that are lighter, but do not compromise strength. Metals such as titanium, nickel and aluminum alloys present new challenges to the industries tasked with creating parts from them. In parallel to this, machine shops are now expected to be more productive. 

Machine tools have become smaller, but more powerful. They deliver coolant at high pressures ‘through tool’ directly to the cutting surface. Smaller sumps, higher pressures and shorter recovery times all combine to increase the propensity to foam. These factors combined put increasingly greater expectations on the performance of the metalworking fluid (MWF). Anthony will discuss the importance of new chemistries and how Afton has approached the development of Afton’s latest Low Foam Emulsifier for the Metal working industry.
