The Best Coolants for CNC Machines

September 4, 2019

Using the best coolant for CNC machines is critical to the success of any machining operation. Coolants used in CNC machines are utilized for:

  • Achieving tighter tolerances
  • Improving surface finish of product
  • Maximizing life of the cutting tool
  • Evacuation of metal chips from work areas
  • Preventing rust to machined part surfaces
  • Protecting machinery
  • Reducing cycle times
  • Regulating high temperatures during cutting processes or better said – Keeping the parts cooler

Finding a coolant that is appropriate for a machining job can save time, money and improve a machine’s overall performance while ensuring the safety of people operating a machine.

Typically, there are four types of CNC metalworking fluids – Straight Oils, Water-Based Fluids, Soluble, Semi-Synthetic and Synthetic Fluids.

In the manufacturing process, the delivery methods of cutting fluids can range from flooding, spraying, dripping, misting and brushing. Deployment of coolant depends on the product, the cutting machine and cutting process that is being performed.
