Advantages of our Metalworking Fluids

  • Improved surface finish with exceptional machining performance
  • Coolant management with lower coolant consumption and reduced cost of operation
  • Ease of use and cutting oil maintenance with stable emulsion and tramp oil separability

What is Tramp Oil and how does it affect CNC performance

Tramp oil is a contaminant that can adversely affect the working life of cutting oils and CNC. High quantities of tramp oil in cutting oils can result in:

  • Change in the coolant concentration, resulting short coolant life
  • Affecting the lubricity, leading to tool wear and poor surface finish
  • Increase in the risk of bacterial growth and undesirable odours
  • Impeding the coolant management by reducing coolant pH levels leading to corrosion
  • Promotion of excessive cutting oil foaming
Metalworking fluid

Non removal of tramp oil can reduce oxygen flow and thereby result in bacterial growth. Tramp oil can be removed using oil skimmers or manually when the coolant emulsion has good separability with slide-way oil. Mobilcut series and Mobil Vactra oil series have the advantage of high separability which aids this process.


Water-Soluble Cutting Oils – Mobilcut series

Mobil’s water-soluble cutting oils are formulated with high levels of lubricity additives designed for machining a wide range of metals. These bio-stable fluids are particularly suitable for wide range of alloys used in the automotive industry.

The cutting oils also offer the following benefits for modern machining:

  • Outstanding machining performance
  • Stable emulsions and concentration control
  • High degree of corrosion protection
  • Low coolant foaming tendency

Our water-soluble cutting oils are designed for low top-up requirements and minimum concentration fluctuations which results in lower bacterial growth and longer sump life. This helps in achieving lower cost of operation.


CNC Machine Lubricants

Selection of the right cutting oils and auxiliaries component oils like slide-ways, spindle oils etc. is imperative for the efficient performance of CNC machines. Mobil’s CNC machine lubricants are the right fit for your precision machining needs.
