Minimum Lubrication (MQL) Turrets
TBMR turrets can be used with MQL systems.
MQL is the acronym of Minimum Quantity Lubrication and consists in minimizing the use of coolant by spraying the mixture of compressed air and cutting fluid (mineral oils or vegetable oils) instead of flood cooling.
The advantages of this application are:
- reduced temperature of the cutting area
- better workpiece surface
- reduced tool wear
- reduced cutting forces
- lower impact in pollution
