Electrostatic Lubrication System combines flexibility, precision.

Press Release Summary:

With adjustable speed from 1–1,000 fpm, StaticLube® electrostatic atomization Venturi system decreases lubrication consumption for metal stampers/fabricators and delivers 100% efficiency with zero waste, overspray, VOCs, and odor. Negatively charged lubricant, attracted to neutral, grounded material, ensures uniform distribution of oil-based or solid dry-film lubricant across surface of 1–75 in. wide sheets or coils of metal. Precision coating thickness capability is 1–1,000 mg/ft².

Coldwater Machine Company Announces Availability of Electrostatic Lubrication System

Coldwater, Ohio – Coldwater Machine Company, a leading engineering solutions company that manufactures and integrates precision equipment and tools for multiple industries, has added electrostatic lubrication to its capabilities with the StaticLube® system. Available for both sheet metal and coil stock, StaticLube decreases lubrication consumption for metal stampers and fabricators by up to 95 percent as compared to other systems. It is also environmentally-friendly, delivering 100-percent efficiency with zero waste, overspray, VOCs, odor or disposal costs.

This technology is based upon the concept that opposites attract. With StaticLube's electro-static atomization Venturi system, the lubricant is negatively charged and thus attracted to the neutral, grounded material. This evenly distributes millions of micron-sized particles of either oil-based or solid dry-film lubricants across the surface of sheets or coils of metal, producing the most uniformly lubricated surface available. Due to the uniform amount of lubricant the system applies to sheet or coil, wear and tear on forming equipment is minimized and the overall tooling life is increased. This saves time and money by reducing the frequency of re-tooling, allowing for longer, uninterrupted production runs.

StaticLube speeds can be adjusted from 1 – 1000 fpm, sheet thickness of .005-in to .375-in., and precision coating thickness capability of up 1mg/sq. ft. to 1000 mg/sq. ft. It is available in several standard models that will accommodate ferrous and non-ferrous coil or sheet stock from 1-in up to75-in. in width. The StaticLube can also be built to custom specifications to accommodate sheet or coil stock up to 2-meters in width.

Coldwater Machine Company has recently been appointed as the sole distributor and manufacturer of the StaticLube product line through an agreement with the solution's originator Avant Garde Technology (Lake Mary, Fla.).

Coldwater Machine is a leader in the design, build and integration of specialized equipment for discrete manufacturing with extensive precision-machining capability primarily serving companies in the automotive, aviation, aerospace, appliance and energy industries that are producing products requiring tight tolerances. With over 50 years' experience, the company's key competencies include precision machining and assembly, engineering support, design and build of specialized manufacturing equipment, and solid-state welding/joining systems.
