CUTTING COOLANT

Cutting Coolant For Service and Maintenance

Cutting coolant is all-too-often overlooked as a major component of a machining operation. The type of coolant or lubricant and the pressure at which it is applied is vital. It is vital to both machining success and shop efficiency. You can apply coolant as compressed air, mist, in a flooding property, or as high pressure.

The role of cutting coolants for your CNC machinery

We recommend using cutting coolants for chip clearing, lubrication, and cooling of CNC machinery.

Check the condition of your cutting coolant. This will ensure your machining process is as efficient as possible.

If necessary, do a complete drain, then replenish it.

You should usually complete this on an annual basis.

Using a refractometer, check the concentration of your specific brand of cutting coolant.
