-- /ins Expensive metalworking fluids are no longer needed to cool and lubricate workpieces and cutting tools in the machine tool industry. Instead, there is now a proven green and clean method, EcoCooling, that uses only ionized and cooled air and has none of the environmental hazards and costs related to oil-based fluids.
EcoCooling is the result of long-term, interdisciplinary R&D from the same team that developed the optical technology behind Amazon's ground-breaking family of front-lit Kindle devices.
Now the group of scientists, engineers and experienced businesspeople from various disciplines has developed a dry, clean and environmentally friendly method to cool and lubricate metal workpieces without using any emulsions.
"Workshops have wanted to get rid of the fluids and many have tried to find a solution to the problem, but with poor results", says Leo Hatjasalo,
co-founder and CEO of EcoCooling. "Now we have the answer to this demand, since EcoCooling can be used when cutting and carving everything from high tensile steels and titanium alloys to plastics."http://www.ins-news.com/en/100/984/2700/Dry-cooling-method-to-replace-polluting-metalworking-fluids.htm
