Looking Closely At the Rot from the Chemical Reaction of Aluminium on Cast Iron.
We know lubrication systems. We can help you fix your lubrication problems.
Ever wonder why certain machine parts don't last? Sometimes it comes down to chemistry. There are several brands of Taiwanses built machines that use aluminium tubing in their lubricaiton lines. Unfortunately when the aluminum is clamped down to the cast iron of the machine a chemical reaction occurs and over time the result is a rotted line. A recent customer had to replace a ball screw due to this very condition. If you're using an excessive amount of oil or your machine's axes sound a little bit noisier, we can help you identify the problem.
For machines with #box #ways this condition will shorten the life of the #TURCITE way material, causing issues with #accuracy and #repeatability. #Machine#Tool#Builders apply the #Turcite way material in only one- thirty second thickness. Without proper #lubrication the Turcite can become dangerously thin, resulting in damage to the #Harden #Ways. This would require grinding or replacement of the #way #bars. To avoid this situation which will cause excessive down time, give us a call. We do know what to look for.

We purchased the Acer AGS 1020 AHD wet grinder about a year ago and we are very pleased with it. The wide 10” feed allows us to resurface many of our small die shoes and strippers without having to buy a larger grinder. The machine is very accurate and the hydraulics are quiet, especially in the small room where the machine is located. My employees were able to learn how to operator it very quickly and without having much previous experience with an automated grinder achieve excellent results. I feel that the machine is a great value and has worked flawlessly for us.
