Quaker Chemical Offers a Webinar on Tapping Technology: Simulating Non-Ferrous Cut & Roll Tapping Performance in the Laboratory

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As aluminum alloys expand in breath of application and metallurgical properties, it is important to continuously advance the fluids used to machine them. A primary goal of every fluid manufacturer is reducing the total cost of ownership for metalworking fluids and often, this can be achieved through leaner, tighter emulsion chemistry. However, such advancements in colloidal chemistry can particularly impact the machining performance of thread cutting applications. In order to accelerate product development processes, as well as accurately address customer challenges, Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") has invested heavily in the speed, accuracy, and breath of our simulation tools for tapping aluminum.

Studying the performance of a metalworking fluid in a metal machining operation.

To address these challenges, Automotive Manufacturing Solutions Magazine will be hosting the webinar "Tapping Technology: Simulating Non-Ferrous Cut Tapping & Roll Tapping Performance in the Laboratory" on Thursday October 12th, 9-10 AM ET (14-15 BST), presented by Quaker's Michiel van Breemen, Technical Research Manager – EMEA. This webinar will discuss the importance of utilizing test conditions that mimic industrial processes as a way to effectively study the performance of a metalworking fluid in a metal machining operation and the results of work conducted to:

  • Develop unique laboratory test methods able to predict the performance of a metalworking fluid in thread making operations
  • Focus especially on the test parameters that are most influential to the relevance and repeatability of the results obtained in relation to the industrial process conditions
