Cutting & Drilling Fluid
Cutting fluid is often used during heavy material cutting or machining processes to improve overall cutting operations and extend tool life. Lubricating coolants create better cutting conditions allowing quicker, clean cuts. At ROGO Fastener, we offer premium cutting fluid and drilling fluid to improve industrial machining operations.
The Functions of Cutting Fluid
Cutting fluid is a gaseous or liquid lubricating coolant that can be composed of greasy substances, water, air, or other raw ingredients. The greasy compounds can be derived from petroleum distillates, plant oils, or animal fats. The three main functions for cutting fluid include:
- Cooling: Heat is generated during heavy cutting operations and can deform the materials involved. Cutting fluids are used to quickly decrease heat and reduce friction allowing faster cutting processes and less tool wear.
- Lubrication: Cutting fluids lubricate the interface between the tool's cutting edge and the material being cut. Lubrication also prevents small material chips from welding onto your cutting tool, which can make future cutting operations slower, messy, and more difficult.
- Material preservation: When lubricating coolants are used, clean surface cuts are achieved and the materials are less likely to become subject to environmental corrosion.
The Utility of Cutting Fluid
You can use cutting or drilling fluid to improve the following operations:
Cutting tools are typically costly. These lubricating fluids help to preserve the full performance of your cutting tools and prevent unnecessary tool replacements.
At ROGO, we offer cutting fluids in spray containers for ultimate ease of use. For questions, contact our team today!
