It is therefore important that the lubricants be easy to apply - and easy to remove once the forming operation is completed. Ideally, they should "leave no trace".
Our special products can help make your forming process more economical - be it due to lower consumption, less wear or simplified aftertreatment.
Which type of product to select depends largely on the individual forming process.
In cutting, punching or bending processes, solvent-based products leaving no or little residues have proven successful, while hot forming normally calls for oils containing solid lubricants (a classic: graphite).
Forming processes – longer production times with less residues
What matters most besides quality and dimensional accuracy of the finished parts are long die and tool life. Furthermore, the formation and build-up of residues should be kept to a minimum.
Our product range for forming processes encompasses oils with or without solvent, graphite oils and suspensions, innovative, water-based coatings as well as powders - all of them enabling more economical plant operation.
The following process lubricants might be of interest to you:
Klübertec CM 6 (oils for cold forming)
Klübertec ST oils ("volatile" oils based on solvent)
Klüberpress E 2-802 (powder release agent for aluminium extrusion)
Klüberpress HF 2 oils (forging fluids)
PRESSPATE (pastes for deep drawing and tube bending)
Klüberplus S11 (high-temperature separating coating)
