Managing all aspects of the supply is crucial to success

Excerpt of M. Diane McCormick's December 2019 Compoundings Article

In today's global marketplace, supply chain sustainability and transparency drive innovation and competitiveness in lubricant manufacturing.

"Innovation is key to market competitiveness in the lubricant industry, and as a result, it's a never-ending cycle of driving for better perform and in the most cost-effective way," said James Eggenschwiler, director of global trade for the Redstone Group.

The global market means more choices but also in an age of uncertainty, a host of complexities. Supply chain professionals agree that relationships with trusted partners are the key to success.

"You have to know which options are the right ones to choose," said Donna Nijak, plant manager for Hill & Griffith Co. "You have to know whether a material's chemistry is the same between different suppliers. You have to [know] how the supplier is going to perform. It's about all the little things. It's a matter of paying attention to detail and making sure you choose partners who share your level of integrity."

Types of Metalcutting Fluids and Cutting Oils

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Mar 12, 2019 3:01:21 PM

Metal Cutting fluids are an instrumental part of metal machining due to their improvement of the tool life, reduction of the work piece thermal radiation, flushing away chips from the cutting area, and improving the surface finish.

There are four main categories of metalcutting fluids and cutting oils:

Straight metal cutting oils

These oils are non-emulsifiable and very useful in metal machining operations where they function in undiluted form. Their composition is a base mineral or even petroleum oil. Often they contain polar lubricants like vegetable oils, fats and esters. They may also contain extreme pressure additives including sulphur, chlorine, and phosphorus. To achieve the best lubrication you can use straight metal cutting oils, however they may have poor cooling characteristics.
