Selecting Different Manufacturing Techniques

Top Three Machining Lubricants

Posted on

Machinists use a variety of machines to create precision parts, which are typically fabricated from metal. The machines they use to create these parts, such as a milling machine, use metal tool bits. These operations are done at a high rate of speed, and the metal-on-metal fabricating process causes a tremendous amount of friction and heat. For this reason, they can only be operated with coolant or lubricant. Here is a look at the most commonly used milling machine coolants and their advantages and disadvantages. Read More»

The problem is that everyone refers to these machines in a very generalized way as “cranes.” Even if you get a wee bit specific, you might confuse industrial cranes with overhead cranes. While it could certainly be said that an overhead crane is a type of industrial crane because it is used in industrial and manufacturing plants, you should know that an actual industrial crane is something very different.
