Aerosol Dry Lubrication Process

When working with lubrication-assisted drilling and milling, we have found that the process still has room for improvement. Therefore, we have developed our own lubrication system for these processes, which not only keeps the components oil-free, but also achieves better process quality, has shorter process times, extends tool life and ensures high reliability. With internal lubrication even for tools with small diameter cooling channels and optional upgrades for external lubrication, various materials such as CFRP and titanium can be precisely finished. With this technology, we minimize process times by up to 30% while doubling the number of holes during the drilling process. With aerosol dry lubrication, we also achieve a 20% reduction in drill wear for an even more efficient factory of the future and smart and efficient processes.

Special Features

  • Own SPS control
  • Communication optionally Profibus/ProfiNet
  • Precise cycle dosing of the aerosol
  • Stable aerosol even over longer
