Machine Cutting Oil
Machine cutting oil is a type of lubricant used in metalworking operations to improve tool life and reduce cutting forces, friction, and heat generation.
It is specially formulated to provide a barrier between the cutting tool and work-piece.
There by reducing wear and tear on both.
Cutting oils can also improve surface finish, reduce smoke and fumes.
They are commonly used in drilling, tapping, sawing, turning, milling, and grinding operations.
Cutting oil is a specialized lubricant used in metalworking operations to improve the performance and lifespan of cutting tools.
Types of machine cutting oil
Soluble Oils: These are water-soluble oils that are mixed with water to form an emulsion.
They are commonly used for light-duty operations and provide good cooling and lubrication properties.
Semi-Synthetic Oils: These oils are a blend of mineral oil and synthetic components, providing improved performance and longer tool life compared to mineral oils.
Synthetic Oils: These are highly refined, synthetic oils that offer superior performance, high heat resistance, and extended tool life. They are often used in heavy-duty, high-temperature operations.
Neat Oils: These are straight oils, used undiluted for specific applications such as honing, grinding, and lapping.
Bio-Based Oils: These oils are made from renewable resources, offering a more environmentally friendly.
The type of cutting oil to be used depends on the type of metal being cut, the cutting process, and the desired performance and environmental impact.
