Metalworking Fluids Revolutionizes the Metalworking and Metalforming Industries

May 17, 2007
OAK INTERNATIONAL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Milacron, Inc (Cincinnati), continues o shape the metalworking and metalforming industries with the introduction of the OAK SIGNATURE brand of metalworking fluids. The OAK SIGNATURE brand offers wide and varied solutions that address the rigorous fluid challenges of metalcutting, metalforming, cleaning, corrosion inhibition and specialty applications. Specific brands include: OAKFLO™ - Formulated to address the needs of the machine tool and metalworking systems and to offer safer and less-expensive alternatives to straight oil machining and grinding systems. The fluids provide users with proven lubricity, superior cooling and excellent corrosion control. OAKFLO™ also eliminates rancidity and dermatitis issues and promotes efficient, easy part cleaning. Typical applications include: milling, drilling, turning, reaming, tapping, broaching, sawing and grinding. Typical materials include: cast iron, stainless steel, carbon steel, cast steel, aluminum, bronze, brass, copper and many exotic alloys. OAKFORM™ - Stamping and drawing fluids meet or exceed the highest quality standards for a diversity of metalforming applications. In addition to superior lubricity, cooling and corrosion control, these fluids have been shown to provide extreme-pressure lubrication especially for severe stamping and drawing. In addition, they have proven to significantly lower manufacturing costs in many metalforming operations. OAKTEC™ - Multipurpose corrosion inhibitors address a full line of in-process and long-term storage RP applications. Available in solvent, oil, water-soluble and synthetics, these formulations fit virtually every need and application. OAKSPEC™ - Specialty fluids, lubricants, allied products and processes meet a diversity of customer-specific requirements from fine blanking to laminate stamping, hydro-forming to tube forming, glass grinding to creep-feed grinding. OAK INTERNATIONAL has provided fluid solutions to the metalworking/metalforming community for more than quarter of a century. Each fluid product is laboratory tested to simulate actual field performance and must successfully complete tests for corrosion prevention, lubricity and a variety of post-application operations requirements.
