Lubrication System is designed for metal stamping industry.

Press Release Summary:



Using precision spray valves and low volume low pressure (LVLP) air, MicroCoat coats stock with fine, even film of oil without dry spots or dripping. It provides constant, uniform coverage, yet allows amount of oil applied to be changed instantly if compensation for tool wear or metal pickup is required. Spray valves fit inside press between stock feed and die. Valve operation is regulated from outside press.

New Stock Lubrication System Overcomes Limitations of Drip Pads and Rollers


East Providence, RI - EFD's MicroCoat® lubrication system was developed specifically for the metal stamping industry and is designed to coat stock with a fine, even film of oil. Unlike messy pad and roller systems, the MicroCoat uses precision spray valves and Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) air to assure steady, consistent lubrication without dry spots or dripping.

Pad and roller systems take time for the applicator to become saturated or dry out, are easily contaminated, and typically require significant maintenance. In contrast, the MicroCoat provides constant, uniform coverage, yet allows the amount of oil applied to be changed instantly if compensation for tool wear or metal pickup is ever required.

Oil is applied with compact spray valves that fit inside the press between the stock feed and die. Valve operation is regulated with a pneumatically operated valve controller that makes it easy for the press operator to quickly and safely set the correct amount of lubrication for each job from outside the press. Individual flow control knobs permit independent adjustment of each valve's output, for exceptional control over the amount of oil applied. The correct lubrication level can be established in just a few minutes, and will remain consistent for the entire press run.

Unlike messy drip pads and rollers, EFD's MicroCoat®) lubrication system uses precision spray valves and Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) air to assure steady, consistent lubrication without dry spots or dripping.
