Spray Systems for Metal Finishing
One of the world’s most prevalent manufacturing methods, metal forming generates shaped alloy products used in everything from small electronic devices to massive construction projects. The process involves turning raw material into specific forms using compressive forces, but excessive wear can be an undesirable byproduct.
Minimize friction on your metal forming lines with JET-SET, a leading manufacturer of metal forming lubrication systems. Capable of depositing precise amounts of lubricants on critical surfaces, they reduce the likelihood of irregularities that can disrupt productivity.
Why Does Friction Matter For Metal Forming?
A subset of fabrication, metal forming is a set of processes involving reshaping metals still in a solid state using compressive forces. Moving a solid piece of metal from its current shape into the desired form without melting eliminates potential difficulties with handling molten metal and maintaining material integrity. The most common methods are roll forming, extrusion, press braking, stamping, forging, and casting.
Unmitigated friction can result in increased energy consumption and tool wear, too. In addition, it can generate internal and surface defects. Many issues can develop when tooling and workpiece surfaces come into direct contact without proper lubrication.
- Unwanted Heating, Changing Material Characteristics
Proper Lubrication, Fewer Friction Concerns
Get the most from your metal forming lines with a hydraulic spray lubrication system from JET-SET. They’re specially designed to deposit precise amounts of lubricants in designated areas, separating critical surfaces and avoiding the detrimental impacts of friction.
Other advantages include:
- Forms A Protective Film
- Controls Corrosion
- Improves Equipment Lifespan
- Increases Cleanliness
- Keeps Parts Cool During Operation
Minimizing Friction In Metal Forming Applications
With JET-SET automatic lubrication systems for metal forming processes, you get high performance without the hassle. Our hydraulic spray lubrication systems are designed to be effective, long-lasting, and easy to use.
Parts are made in-house from corrosion-resistant stainless steel. A modular design eliminates installation problems, and pinpoint directional controls enable application at up to 350 bursts per minute. A range of triggering devices – such as repeat cycle timers, counter systems, sensor switches, and limit or air switches – are also available.
