Machining of difficult materials
If you are working on machining aeronautical, medical or energy parts, you are certainly facing machinability problems with your refractory materials, particularly with nickel alloys, titanium or stainless steel. These materials represent a challenge for your productivity because they require high cutting forces; their thermal conductivity is very low and their hardness remains high even at elevated temperatures.
You are probably looking for solutions to increase your cutting speeds and improve the life of your tools which tend to degrade rapidly.
Based on its expertise, CONDAT has developed ALTILUB 700, a high performance lubricant solution dedicated to the machining of super alloys. Featuring a unique lubricating phase, ALTILUB 700 shows increased wettability and lubricity.
Optimal for high pressure systems
- Mechanical stability and low concentration
- No foaming and fast deaeration (pressure >150 bars)
ALTILUB 700 improves your cutting conditions
- Reduction of your scrap
- Increased tool life
Mineral oil free and translucent, ALTILUB 700 contributes to the cleanliness of your parts and your production facilities.
Discover the success story of the Rochette Group
For the machining of sensor supports in INCONEL 718 on a MAZAK INTEGREX 200-IV ST machining center, the Rochette Group was looking to increase its tool life.
The CONDAT experts have focused on 2 types of tools; roughing and finishing cutting tools. Further to the onsite study and careful listening of the customer’s needs, CONDAT experts launched a trial phase with ALTILUB 700 in July 2020.
Thanks to the very high lubricating and cooling power of ALTILUB 700 demonstrated by the 2 pictures below (the temperature is controlled immediately during machining), the Rochette Group has noted excellent dimensional and geometric stability of its parts and, above all, its tools life has doubled!
Additionally, the absence of foaming and the high stability of ATILUB 700 have resulted in better decantation and separation of pollutants.
Finally, the working areas have become much more pleasant for the employees thanks to a noticeable reduction of mists and fumes and cleaner machines and windows. The air quality in the workshop has been improved; even the air conditioners have benefited from this change as their maintenance frequencies have been reduced.
