Selecting the right machine tool lubricant makes the difference in the production process. The slideway oil used plays an important role in obtaining supreme machining quality. To prevent chatter marks on the surface of the work pieces produced by stick-slip, a lubricating film with sufficient adhesion on the slideway is necessary, especially when slow feed rates and high surface unit pressures occur. Due to its polar properties, the fully synthetic slideway oil, PLANTOLUBE CGLP 68 S, has very good adhesion and wetting capabilities. Combined with selected additives, it forms reaction layers to ensure a stable lubricating film even under extremely high loads.
In developing these new environmentally friendly slideway oils, we took special care to ensure they work best with the FUCHS PLANTOCOOL line of environmentally friendly cutting fluids.
