Cimcool Fluid Technology recently announced the release of a new lubricant technology for machining and grinding of hard metals. The new Cimtech synthetic fluids feature synergistic lubricant blends that are designed to provide increases in productivity without the use of chlorine or other high levels of extreme-pressure additives.

"We have developed something that is completely new and unique to the industry," said Tina Hunter, automotive product manager. "These fluids work best when really pushed to the limit. The tougher the operation, the better results we see. The performance of these fluids is significantly better. They have outperformed some popular heavy-duty, sulfo-chlorinated oils by up to 300 percent. This is a huge jump in technology."

The new products include Cimtech 627, 609-E, 610 and 612NF. Cimtech 627 is a synthetic fluid used in heavy‐duty machining and grinding of exotic alloys. The water‐based fluid performs best at high speeds and feeds where conventional fluids fail.

Cimtech 609-E is also a water-based fluid and exhibits reduced chatter, decreased wheel loading, excellent finish and more machine uptime. It is used for hard-metal valve grinding.

Cimtech 610 offers a unique blend of patented Milacron synthetic lubricants (MSL) and is intended for titanium and other hard metals. This fluid performs best at high speeds and feeds.

Cimtech 612NF is another water-based synthetic developed for machining high‐silicon aluminum alloys, with excellent machining and tapping capabilities. It can be used on some ferrous grinding and machining applications, and does not contain chlorine, sulfur or phosphorus.
