Issues Faced In The Industry

Facing Production Stoppages Due To Unexpected Component Failures?

Does Your Team Face The Following Issues?

Production
Hi, there is a production line stoppage in the machining center. Could you head over to rectify it?
Maintenance
Hi, we have looked into the issue. It is due to a component failure in one of the CNC machines. It will take us approximately 2 - 3 weeks to rectify.
Production
Can you resolve it within a shorter period?
This is because the lengthly downtime affects our team’s monthly required production output.
Maintenance
Unfortunately not. The high replacement frequency of these faulty components every year, as well as the unscheduled maintenence, is causing a lack of resources in our team. We will need time to order the new components and schedule the maintenance.
Production
That is frustrating. Why are the components failing so often every single year? Is there a solution to prevent these frequent component failure, to reduce our downtime?

Did You Know That 30% Of Unexpected
Component Failures Are Caused By Cutting Oil?

What is Cutting Oil?

“Cutting oil is a type of coolant and lubricant designed specifically for metalworking processes, such as machining and stamping. There are various kinds of cutting oils, which include oils, oil-water emulsions, pastes, gels, aerosols (mists), and air or other gases.” - from Wikipedia

Cutting Oil Is A Major Cause Of Component Failures
That Lead To Production Stoppages

Due to its low viscosity, water soluble cutting oils is eventually able to seep into components after a short period of time, causing deterioration and corrosion of components. This leads to component failure, which in turn stops production.

Protect Your Components Against Cutting Oil

By protecting your components against cutting oil, hefty maintenance time and costs can be saved, and production demands can be performed efficiently and uninterrupted.
