High quality and dimensional accuracy are essential in all metalworking operations, including pressing, forging, cutting and stamping. Process results are also largely dependent on the lubricants and release agents that are used. They must be easy to apply, leave as few residues as possible, and not impair downstream processes. Klüber Lubrication develops and produces process lubricants that exactly meet these requirements.
Process lubricants are lubricants and release agents that are needed in numerous application areas in metalworking and forming, such as sheet metal forming or working, massive forming, or aluminium continuous casting.
Tube bending and deep drawing, forging and continuous casting, stamping and cutting pose highly different requirements for release agents.
Klüber Lubrication offers specially developed products for numerous applications in metal forming and processing. The right process lubricants and release agents help you achieve extremely high quality, long life and reliability in your forming processes. The most suitable process lubricant for your application depends on the material and the metalworking process, the tool surface and the processing speed. The temperatures during the forming process also play a role. For cutting, stamping and bending processes, lubricants and release agents with the least possible residues usually work best, while oils with solid lubricants (in most cases graphite) are used for hot forming.
The Klüber Lubrication product portfolio for forming processes includes oils with or without solvents, graphite oil and suspensions, a deep-drawing paste that is unique in the global market, and innovative products such as powders and lubricant varnishes that support the economical operation of your machinery.
