METAL FORMING LUBRICANTS REDEFINED



Back to home page

Tier 1# automotive supplier virtually eliminates scrap rate on critical component


manufactured from Advanced High Strength Steel (ADHSS).

THE PROBLEM


Component made from ADHSS  grade 780  4 mm thick.


Not enough metal flow was being achieved by the well know synthetic oil used to form this part.


This lack of lubrication caused the plunged holes in this part to crack around the hole edges.


The cracking was creating a 45% scrap rate for the part, even with flooding the component in oil.


THE  SOLUTION


The transfer tool was equipped with 7 spray nozzles delivering the exact amount of IRMCO product to lubricate this part correctly.


Lubricant usage was reduced by 60%.


Scrap rate was reduced to less than 1%.


Pre-weld wash for the component was eliminated..


Cleaning chemical volume was reduced by 70%.
