Case Study: Enhancing Machining Efficiency with Fortech TechKool FT3000R™
The aerospace industry, known for its rigorous standards and demanding material requirements, relies heavily on precision machining, which incorporates Inconel. Renowned for its high-temperature resistance and corrosion resilience, Inconel can prove to be difficult to machine because of its abrasive nature, often leading to rapid tool wear and increased coolant degradation.
This high-precision manufacturer for the aerospace industry found that existing tooling solutions fell short of meeting the industry’s high expectations for efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The constant need for tool replacements not only incurred significant expenses but also led to downtime, affecting overall production output.
This company opted to introduce Fortech TechKool FT 3000R into their machining processes. Fortech TechKool FT3000R, a cutting-edge semi-synthetic coolant designed to withstand extreme machining conditions, presented a promising solution for tackling the challenges posed by Inconel.
The implementation of Fortech TeckKool FT3000R yielded remarkable improvements for the high-precision manufacturer:
- Tool Life Enhancement: The utilization of Fortech TeckKool FT3000R resulted in a substantial 15-20% increase in tool life.
- Extended Coolant Life: The new coolant exhibited a notable effect on sump life longevity.
- Cleaner Parts Production: Parts emerging from the machining process exhibited a notably cleaner finish.
- Foaming Issues Mitigated: They reported a substantial reduction in foaming issues within their coolant system.
- Cleaner Facility Environment: The introduction of Fortech TeckKool FT3000R had the additional benefit of maintaining a cleaner environment within the customers’ facility.
