With manufacturing taking a centre stage in India over the past few years, manufacturing set-ups have gained significance in the larger scheme of things, becoming the driving engine of our manufacturing industry. Extensive use of technology and modern machinery forms the base for these manufacturing set-ups. However, despite sound expertise and inherent capabilities to enhance the business, manufacturing set-ups are facing a number of challenges such as sub-optimal scale of operation.
Manufacturing set-ups specializing in nuts and bolts, complex gear sets or high precision valves, pay high emphasis on efficient functioning of their machine components. Long service life, excellent machining performance, health and environmental concerns are important factors for advanced productivity in a manufacturing set-up.
In order to attain advanced productivity, manufacturing set-ups should consider solutions which focus on improving machinery operation with highest efficiency. They must be designed to work in a variety of hard and soft water qualities. They should offer low foam potential and long-term corrosion protection for machine and components.
To help ensure smooth functioning of the machinery, it is important to choose a combination of high-quality slideway oils and metal working lubricants such as water soluble cutting fluids or neat cutting oils. Industrial lubricants are designed to reduce friction between critical rotating and moving machine components, which then translates into equipment durability, longevity and continued uptime.
