QualiChem to Showcase Premium Foam-Free High-Pressure Metalworking Fluids at IMTS 2014

SALEM, Va. – QualiChem will feature its premium cutting and grinding fluids for high-pressure applications at IMTS 2014, in Chicago, Sept. 8-13.

QualiChem’s XTREME series of premium metalworking fluids have been formulated to overcome the problems that often occur with high-pressure fluid delivery systems. These fluids are designed to:

Eliminate foaming

Minimize downtime and maximize productivity

Improve surface finish and overall part quality

Extend tool life

Reduce coolant usage by 25-60 percent

“Our XTREME series of premium metalworking fluids are designed to help users get the most out of their cutting and grinding processes with high-pressure coolants,” said Mike Forest, Director of Metalworking. “We are seeing significant increases in the occurrences of foam as a result of more machine tools taking advantage of the benefits of high pressure. Metalworking fluids that foam reduce the efficiency of the machining process as well as increase operating cost due to machine downtime, increased coolant usage and decreased tool life. We see numerous incidents of high-speed automated machines working at a fraction of their design capacity because their metalworking fluid foams at high pressure. The technology advances in QualiChem’s XTREME series of metalworking fluids result in low to no foam in all high-pressure applications whether it’s ChipBlaster, MP Systems, CoolJet or other high-pressure equipment manufacturers. That’s why we’re putting a special focus on our high-pressure metalworking fluids at IMTS 2014.”

“We have numerous case studies documenting measurable cost savings and productivity gains from switching high-pressure machines to QualiChem fluids,” added Forest. “For instance, in one field test, QualiChem 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.”

If you want the most out of your machine tool investment, we invite you to come to Booth N-7227 at IMTS and let our experts show you why “The Fluid Matters.”
