Brian Hovik, Aerospace Market Manager, Chemetall
This presentation will take a detailed look into the perspective of the metalworking fluid manufacturer, the regulating agencies, the waste treatment facilities, and the end user. Each has a different perspective. Understanding and appreciating each perspective will help all involved to manufacture, use and treat metalworking fluids as an asset versus a necessary evil. Data will be presented that shows the differences between many available products on the market and how this can affect the cost effectiveness of the metalworking fluid. Machinability, Sump-Life, chip carry-off, biological stability, health & safety and waste treatment will be analyzed. Discussions of the future of regulations regarding metalworking fluids will also be presented.
- Differentiate between different types and capabilities of metalworking fluids.
- Assess their current metalworking fluid use and compare with new technology and regulatory requirements
- Understand the complexity of metalworking fluid compounding and how regulatory initiatives, raw materials and how new technology can enhance their machining
