    Correct lubricant application, reuse net cost savings

    Die lubricants and other process fluids often are the last items to be considered in stamping manufacturing operations. Yet they can make or break your chances of producing good parts in a cost-effective manner. How you use lubricants and other metalworking fluids significantly affects your housekeeping activities, and can become a health, safety, and environmental (HSE) concern while increasing costs in ways that many stampers don’t consider.

    Slashed Lube Use, Improved Die Life

    Continuous stock-lubrication systems, or roller coaters, consistently apply a precise amount of lubricant to the top and bottom of coil stock just before it feeds into the press. Compared to locating spray nozzles at the entry end of the press and then spaced throughout the die, as needed, roller coaters promise to reduce lube consumption by eliminating overspraying, while promoting cleanliness around the press. And, precise, predictable and repeatable lube application can improve part quality and extend die life.
