New Delhi, India – Automobile and industrial lubricants manufacturer, Idemitsu Lube India Pvt Ltd introduced ‘Daphne Alphacool CS,’ a water-soluble cutting oil that helps enhance the working environment providing a special heat-resistant surfactant. This oil minimizes odor in the shop floor and stickiness in and around the machine compared to conventional water-soluble cutting oils, as well as mitigating mist and volatile ingredients effectively.
Its defoaming property makes it ideal for high speed and high-pressure machining centres. Its compatibility with metal and non-metal is well suited for machining all product types and its rubber compatibility makes it a safer cutting oil for machine parts like coolant hose and electrical wires.
Machining industries have witnessed significant globalization in recent years as the type and shape of work materials have become more diversified. To boost cost competitiveness, higher processing efficiency is therefore important. The water-soluble cutting oils that have excellent cooling properties are mainly used to achieve high efficiency, as by increasing the cutting speed and feed rate generally results in higher cutting temperatures.
On this occasion, Kapil Gandhi, Head Technical and Marketing, Idemitsu Lube India Pvt Ltd explained, “Daphne Alphacool CS improves cutting performance with emphasis on operator safety as it is free from hazardous chemicals and eliminates problems faced by operators like bad odour, irritating mist, eye irritation, roughness in hands and residual smell of cutting oil on clothes and body. Also to add-up, it can give excellent cost saving benefit through Reduced misting, Reduced stickiness, Reduced cost on machine maintenance, Extended sump life, Reduced oil consumption and Improved tool life. Operators safety and reduction in operation cost is topmost priority and focus of Idemitsu.”
