Direct Cooling Systems

DirectCooling from CERATIZIT

Flood cooling remains unbeatable in most applications. However, more targeted delivery of cutting fluids is a welcome alternative, not least in the context of sustainability. Toolholders with DirectCooling (DC) are equipped with two inner holes that guide the coolant to where it has the greatest impact: directly at the cutting edge. One hole targets the rake face from above and the other the flank from below. So, in terms of transfer, instead of emptying a bucketful into the machining zone, the cutting edges are targeted. Targeted cooling improves both the service life and general process security.


DC VDI holder with 4-in-1 functionality

DirectCooling can be used for any application. The only pre-requisite is that the coolant must be transferred via the turret of the turning or mill-turn center. In terms of versatility, the new VDI holder with DirectCooling truly shines: where two variants would typically be necessary for normal and overhead applications, CERATIZIT users only need one holder thanks to the double tooth profile. There is also the option of attaching clamping rails at the top or underside to eliminate the need for an extra holder on the left and right. The lengths of all DirectCooling holders can also be ideally matched to one another. This puts an end to interference and creates a compact complete package for optimal stability and unlimited flexibility.


The direct cooling system from CERATIZIT optimizes cooling lubrication: two coolant holes trained on the cutting edge ensure efficient cooling, lubrication, and chip evacuation.

Rust Preventive Oils

NOX-RUST® from Zavenir Daubert

In most manufacturing industries, part protection during shipping or storage before final assembly is crucial and the
usage of RP (Rust Preventive) oils is essential. The performance of an RP oil to get the best corrosion protection can
be demonstrated by high Salt Spray (SST) Life, an aspect in which Contact Corrosion Inhibition (CCI) based RP oils exemplify enduringness.

In specific cases, like in enclosed surface areas, VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitors) oils are recommended, and for the parts exposed to an acidic environment special acid protection RP oils are needed.

Invented by George Daubert, CCI technology is based on stronger adhesive intermolecular forces of the proprietary polar additives for superb rust protection even in tough conditions of high humidity and temperatures. The physical oil layer is thin as polar additives perform rust inhibition. This combination of adhesive polarity and thin film technology makes NOX-RUST® liquids form an impermeable layer for various corrosion-causing elements like moisture and oxygen that attack the metal surface. The thin film due to low viscosity results in high coverage, low consumption, easy removal, significant cost reduction, and performance benefits.

NOX-RUST® provides a range of specially formulated rust preventive oils, giving excellent protection in areas of high humidity and temperature. Other benefits include: Low evaporation losses - Higher flash points; Thin tack-free film - Very low aromatic content and strong demulsification; Higher coverage, low consumption - Lower viscosities based on thin film technology; and Excellent rust protection in severe conditions - High salt spray and humidity chamber life.
