The training course is intended for individuals requiring an improved understanding of water-dilutable metalworking fluids (MWFs) and why they fail, including fluid formulators, engineers responsible for using, managing or specifying MWFs, tool manufacturers, and those supplying raw materials and additives for MWFs.
Learn about fluid problems and their causes, and ways to minimize the risk of failure. The training course will first review basic information on fluids, water quality, metallurgies, etc., as well as performance factors typically evaluated in the laboratory and their correlation with field performance. The major part of the seminar will discuss failure modes and causes and ways to mitigate risk and will include a range of case studies to consolidate knowledge.
