With manufacturing activities taking a centre stage in India over the past few years, the sector is on a strong growth trajectory. Extensive use of technology and modern machinery form the base for these manufacturing set-ups.
However, optimization of productivity and reduction of downtime still remain a concern for the sector. In order to attain advanced productivity, manufacturing set-ups should consider solutions which focus on improving the performance of the machine tools. We at ExxonMobilTM, are committed to offer a range of lubricants that are reliable and ensure optimal operational benefits for our customers, thus driving increased productivity & profitability for them.
In this milieu, ExxonMobil recently participated in AMTEX 2018, an annual machine tool exhibition that prompts innovation and networking in the manufacturing industry. During this 4 day event held in Delhi, ExxonMobil displayed an array of products ranging from Metal Working Fluids, Spindle Oils, Hydraulic Oils, Gear Oils, etc.
ExxonMobil has established itself as one of the leading companies to provide lubrication for heavy machinery and services to increase the life time of a machine shop. In addition to the high performance lubricants and fluids, Mobil also provides a range of technical services to help keep the machine shop running at peak efficiency – also extending the life of the machine, reducing downtime and lowering operating costs.
With commitment to the core business ethos of Advancing Productivity, Safety and Environmental care, Mobil has a portfolio of lubrication solutions and technical services that are tailor made for the Machine Shop segment. A few of Mobil’s key offerings are:
Poorly formulated slideway oils may not separate readily from aqueous coolants. This results in the formation of ‘tramp oil’ which compromises the effectiveness of the coolant by shortening its effective life and adversely altering cutting performance. Tramp oil can also lead to bacterial growth resulting in foul odour, short service life and potential health as well as safety concerns.
To identify high performance lideway oils, maintenance professionals should seek out products such as Mobil Vactra™ Oil Numbered Series of slideway oils with the following performance characteristics:
Exceptional coolant separability which enhances the performance and life of water based metal working fluids, outstanding frictional properties which enable increased machine accuracy and reduced chatter, and stick-slip. Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series are premium-quality slideway lubricants specifically designed to meet the requirements for accuracy, aqueous coolant separability, and equipment protection of precision machine tools.
To optimise productivity it is very important to choose technologyleading aqueous coolants. The highest performing coolants can reduce maintenance requirements by resisting biological attack thereby extend batch life. Ease of maintenance needs to be balanced with performance as well as protecting the Machine Tools components from corrosion and sticky deposits.
In addition, the fluids should meet the latest Health and Safety regulations, be easy to monitor and maintain in service. Collectively, these properties will help deliver long service life, excellent cutting performance an reduced maintenance downtime.
The new Mobilcut™ series from ExxonMobil, comprises of milky emulsions, high performance microemulsions and a fully synthetic grinding fluid. The high performance, long life semi-synthetic cutting fluids in particular have been designed to meet the wide variety of applications and operations found in medium to small sized Machine Tools.
Mobilcut 250 is a high performance semi-synthetic fluid formulated to enhance performance when machining aluminum and aluminum alloys and where low staining potential is important on sensitive components. Containing high levels of lubricity agents, it provides high machining performance of carbon and alloy steels and yellow metals.
Neat or straight cutting oils are used in applications which are beyond the typical performance profile of aqueous coolants, such as tapping and threading of high alloy steels. They improve machining in high speed automated machining centres through outstanding cutting performance, reduced tool wear and enhanced surface finish. Ideally they should be light coloured to allow clear visibility of the workpiece; have low misting characteristics to help workplace safety and product usage; and are chlorine free to support environmental concerns, while balancing with a high degree of lubricity and machining performance.
Specially designed to meet the increasing demands of today’s sophisticated machining centres, tooling trends and health and safety regulations, Mobilmet™ series of cutting oils and the new series of Mobilgrind grinding oils from ExxonMobil have been developed for applications where excellent surface finish, high precision machining and improved productivity are the primary objectives.
Spindle oils are used for high speed spindle bearings and equipment where high speeds and fine clearances are involved. It provides exceptional lubrication of close-tolerance bearings which helps keep the bearings running cool and helps maintain the precision required by many of today’s critical machine bequipments. These are designed for spindle bearings, they exhibit the required properties to function as low pressure hydraulic and circulating oils as long as the proper viscosity is selected. This feature helps minimise inventory costs and reduce the potential for product misapplication.
The Mobil Velocite™ oils are premium performance products primarily designed for the lubrication of high-speed spindles in machine tools. They are also used in some critical hydraulic, circulation systems and air line oilers where the appropriate viscosity grade is selected.
