QUAKERAL® 370

CASE STUDY – MILLING

CHALLENGES


 

A major aerospace engine manufacturer produces titanium turbine blades for military aircraft in a high-speed machining cell of Makino. From day one, they worked with a competitor’s product in demineralized water. The main problems were:

  • Surface cleanliness (stickiness)
  • Foam problems
  • Insufficient tool life
  • Excessive coolant usage
  • Dirt/swarf build-up
  • Unacceptable chemical treatment costs

Quaker introduced QUAKERAL® 370, a chlorine-free product based on Quaker’s proprietary ester and emulsification technology.

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Benefits that came with the introduction of QUAKERAL® 370:

  • Environmental compliance
  • Zero waste due to the absence of emulsion changes
  • Easy operator acceptance
