Market Trends Driving Change in Metalworking

(Hover over each tile to reveal more information)

MACHINE TOOL CAPABILITY

WHAT'S NEW :

  • Greater productivity

  • Flexible multi-tooling machine centers replacing production lines

  • Power density increase - sump size reduction

RISE IN HIGH PRESSURE COOLANT DELIVERY

WHAT'S NEW :

  • Pressures upward of 1000 psi (70 bar)

  • Growth of through-tool delivery

CHANGING MATERIALS LANDSCAPE

WHAT'S NEW :

  • Drive to lightweighting

  • Harder to machine

  • Greater stress on fluids

RESTRICTED RAW MATERIALS AVAILABILITY

WHAT'S NEW :

  • Greater productivity

  • Flexible multi-tooling machine centers replacing production lines

  • Power density increase - sump size reduction

What do these changes mean for Metalworking?

 

1. Greater potential for foam

2. High stress on fluids

3. Increased demand for long fluid life

4. Risk of reduced productivity

5. Greater challenges for the formulator
