The MKD is the industry flagship for
through-the-tool lubrication. This system creates a thin film of air-oil mixture that is brought to the cutting edge by traditional means. An existing fluid delivery system is all that is necessary and no additional plumbing is required.
This is the champion of all exterior lubrication applications. It is best utilized for saw cutting, drill presses, e-mills, stamping and metal forming. An existing fluid delivery system is all that is necessary and no additional plumbing is required.
Minimum Quantity Lubrication is the process of using a very small amount of fluid to lubricate a tool without the need of coolant. This process is best used with sawing, cutting and drilling. An almost unnoticeable air-oil mixture is all that is produced in the process which greatly lessens emissions from other methods.
Is water coolant really the best way to lubricate an application? Aside from the health risks it imposes, coolant comes with the added hassles of cleaning, storing, mixing, monitoring, filtering and high disposal costs. The wet environment allows for bacteria growth and other hazards.
Minimum quantity lubrication lessens the amount of oil needed to lubricate an application. This has proven to increase efficiency and foster a much safer work environment. Everything stays dry and there is no pooling, which not only saves on high disposal costs but also increases tool life.
