High Precision & Ultra Thin Diamond Blade
Coolants - SMART CUT™
When added to cooled water SMART CUT™ synthetic water soluble coolant or Mineral Oil will improve your overall diamond slicing, dicing, sectioning and diamond machining operation by as much as 30%. Plain water evaporates at 212 F. Often temperature in your cutting zone reaches as much as 500 degrees F. Often water evaporates, before it has a chance of affectively cooling the diamond wheel and material being sectioned, sliced, or diced. Resulting in shorter Diamond Wheel Life, Material Damage or micro cracks associated with overheating. Water may cool your diamond wheel, yet provide poor lubrication properties needed for optimum slicing, dicing, & sectioning results.
Using synthetic water soluble coolant or mineral oil with your Diamond Wheel will:
Why use Coolants?
Coolants increase productivity and the quality of material kerf, preserve true material micro structure, & minimize material deformation. Coolants increase the time interval between tooling changes. This saves the company money by reducing the number of tool or die changes needed. Tooling changes require the shut down of the production lines, therefore less tooling changes will increase productivity. Modern coolants must fulfill two primary functions: cooling and lubrication. Both of these functions are important, but their relative importance depends on the type of operation and material being processed.
Prior to modern high-speed equipment, cooling from a lubricant was not needed. The slow cutting speeds did not generate much heat. The straight lubricants were able to transfer enough heat to avoid damage to the parts and tools. However, modern equipment operates at high speeds. This high speed movement creates tremendous amounts of heat which must be removed by the coolant. Failure to remove the heat and chips in the contact zone, between the cutting tool and the part will shorten tool life and increase the number of tool changes as well as reduce the tolerances of tooling and part because of thermal expansion.
Lubrication provided by the coolant reduces the friction between the tool and material / substrate. The coolant prevents the substrate from sticking to the tool and will increase the surface finish. Some companies are trying to eliminate coolants, which inevitably increase the amount of money spent on tooling and lost production. But some companies feel that this is worth the cost benefit of maintaining the coolant systems and the work associated with the coolants. These companies are in the minority.
SMART CUT™ KOOL helps manufacturers and R & D labs:
Reduces Surface Tension -by 25-40 dynes/cm2. SMART CUT KOOL allows more water into the material kerf / pores, dissipating heat generated by friction.
Bonds Water Molecules -into the kerf and to the diamond tool, allowing better swarf dispersion and lubrication.
Prevent Swarf Accumulation -on the diamond tool and in Back and frontside edges, minimizing chipping and internal cracking.
Extend Blade / Diamond Tool Life -by up to 30%. The lubricated blade / diamond tool runs cooler, reducing metal fatigue and blade / diamond tool wear.
Improve Material Yield and Reliability -from the reduced amount of chipping, cracking and consequent edge damage.
Eliminate Additional Material Processing. Depending on the application and your objectives, SMART CUT KOOL frequently eliminates and minimizes secondary and subsequent material processing.
Improved Machining Tolerances. Many of today.s demanding advanced material applications provide challenges to advanced material manufacturers and R & D facilities. Obtaining tolerances less than a millionth.s of an inch, is not uncommon. SMART CUT KOOLANT promotes attainment of close tolerances by removing heat generated at the point of contact between the tool and work piece. Heat can cause deformations in both the tool and work piece that results in the loss of tolerance. When the generation of heat and its subsequent removal by a coolant is momentarily interrupted any coolant product will adversely affect the performance of a tool and therefore ruin a tolerance specification.
TOP 10 REASONS Why SMART CUTCoolant is SUPERIOR
1.Operator Sensitivity - SMART CUT KOOL is formulated with operator friendly additives that will not irritate skin (dermatitis), nasal passages, or eyes.
2.Bio-resistance . SMART CUT KOOL is formulated with biocides and fungicides to biologically control the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold in the coolant system. The bio-resistance will determine its suitability for recycling in large central systems.
3.Corrosion Protection - SMART CUT KOOL is formulated with corrosion inhibitors, which provide protection to machinery and the substrate. The protection needed will be determined by the customers requirements. With proper concentration, no corrosion should occur on the machinery.
4.Hard Water Stability - SMART CUT KOOL should be stable in all water conditions. Hard water ions react with coolant additives and reduce the effectiveness of the coolant solution.
5.Mixability . Concentrate SMART CUT KOOL should mix easily or .bloom. into the water. Any difficulty in mixing will not be tolerated by the customer.
6.Foam - All water based coolants can potentially foam. SMART CUT KOOL is formulated with defoamers to prevent foaming under most conditions. The proper selection of coolant concentration will help alleviate potential problems.
7.Residue - SMART CUT KOOL will not leave a .hard-to-remove. residue on the surface of the machine or substrates. As the water in the coolant. evaporates organic residue will be left on the machines. This residue should not be sticky and should be easily re-dissolved in water.
8.Oxidative Stability - High temperatures and pressures will cause changes in the composition of the coolant, such as fragmentation or polymerization of the additives in the coolant formulation. This can decrease the performance of the coolant and create difficult to remove deposits.
9.Emulsion Stability . Concentrate SMART CUT KOOL mixes easily with water and should not separate or create an invert on the surface of the coolant mixture. Customers currently using soluble oils may be experiencing particular difficulties with this problem.
10.Tramp Oil Rejection - SMART CUT KOOL should reject the tramp oils and way lubricants, which may contaminate the sump. Other coolants which do not reject tramp oils are prone to attack by bacteria and fungal organisms.
