The MOTOREX Research and Development project team documented all day-to-day production parameters from real-life use by customers and industry specialists, including cooling, filtration, concentration adjustment rates, occupational exposure to germs and machine hygiene. The results were extremely gratifying. Here are just a few testimonials from the extensive positive feedback:
TRESOR PMC® IS A HIT WITH CUSTOMERS
|PERFORMANCE Excellent cutting performance.
“After introducing TRESOR PMC®, the service life of the indexable inserts improved by an incredible 20% compared to the predecessor product. The cooling lubricant also came through a three-week shutdown over the holiday season problem-free. We were also able to sustainably reduce cooling lubricant concentration levels.“
Lars Schmäder, head of the machining workshop, Enz Technik AG, Giswil
|SKIN COMPATIBILITY Free of boric acids, amines and other dangerous substances.
“Ever since I started working with the innovative TRESOR PMC® cooling lubricant, my skin problems have disappeared – this is a fabulous improvement!”
Anna Petrovic, employee, Wandfluh Hydraulics & Electronics, Frutigen
|THE FUTURE IS NOW Technology harboring good future perspectives. (The full interview online at: www.motorex.com/tresor)
“I see good future opportunities for a cooling lubricant such as TRESOR PMC®, which is free of problematic substances and inhibits germ growth by natural means. This has been proved in comprehensive tests at reference production sites. I have already amply alluded to the possible risks posed by biocides in use today, and the cost factor for such products that necessitate back-end monitoring and processing is the object of increasingly critical focus.”
Michael Rocker, chemical engineer, Berufsgenossenschaft Metall Nord Süd (BGM), Mainz, Germany
|TOOL LIFE High long-term stability and substantially extended tool life.
“Precision drilling of camshaft bearing bores is an acid test by which we can measure the quality of a cooling lubricant. Many cooling lubricants fail the test owing to their lack of lubricating effect. TRESOR PMC® scored double points in this regard, because not only did it perform the task outstandingly, it succeeded in doing so at an extremely low concentration level of 6%.”
Dirk Sellmer, head of testing and development, MAPAL Dr. Kress KG, Aalen, Germany
|HARD WATER STABILITY Suitable for use with water of any hardness.
“We work with hard water from the municipal mains system and nevertheless achieve excellent emulsion stability with no calcium soap formation. What is more, we have been able to reduce cooling lubricant concentration from 15 to 7% with no loss of quality, even in very demanding machining processes!”
Bernhard Münger, head of the machining department, Ernst Roser AG, Berne
|COST-EFFECTIVENESS Very good flow characteristics.
“We succeeded in lowering our concentration adjustment rate, and with it consumption by our 9,000-liter system, from 1.5 to 0.8%. The lubricant runs off the workpiece and swarf very well.”
Jürg Haltiner, owner of Rätia Mechanik AG, Felsberg
