- Buyer's Guide
QualiChem recently expanded its line of premium metalworking fluids with the introduction of Xtreme Cut 292.
Specifically designed to overcome the challenges of working with difficult alloys such as titanium, Inconel and stainless steel, Xtreme Cut 292 is formulated with the safest metalworking chemistries, resulting in a low-toxicity profile and a fluid that is safe for end users and the environment.
The fluid features new lubrication technology that provides better lubricity than traditional heavy-duty soluble oils and that has produced significant cost savings for aerospace customers as a result of improved cycle times and tool life, particularly when machining exotic alloys.
The fluid delivers additional savings because low drag-out rates decrease coolant usage, and extended sump life improves productivity and reduces disposal cost.
"Xtreme Cut 292 is designed to be the highest performing oil-based emulsion cutting fluid on the market today," said Mike Forest, QualiChem's director of metalworking. "In initial field trials, Xtreme Cut 292 was found to double tool life, reduce coolant usage by 77 percent, cut downtime for tool changes by over 50 percent and eliminate foaming, staining and residue when compared to another popular brand of water-based cutting fluid. The result was an estimated annual projected tool life savings of $39,060 for a single machine running Xtreme Cut 292."
Tests have also shown that Xtreme Cut 292 can replace straight oils where other water-dilutable products have failed.
