Sun Chem brand of Spindle oils are low-viscosity, Ultra pure, Aromatic and VOC free oils designed for the lubrication of very high-speed spindles in industrial machinery and machine tools. These oils are compounded to give excellent resistance to wear, varnish build-up and rust formation, available in ISO VG 2, 10, 15 and 22.
A recent survey resulted in the following analysis of the causes of spindle malfunctions: 42% wear on spindle bearings, 33% collisions, 15% other and 5% each due to dirt and lubrication. While many users are aware of the key importance of the spindle system, few take full advantage of the available room for optimization, especially considering that the investment in a high-frequency spindle averages 10–15% of the cost of the entire machine. Sun Chem Spindle Line creates an ideal environment for reducing spindle malfunctions and enhancing process reliability.
At 40,000 rpm, even the tiniest dirt particle can have a devastating impact on a spindle’s service life. At Sun Chem our product stands for ultra pure quality.
SPINDLE CLEANING Thorough cleaning of the system is recommended every time the spindle coolant is changed (either during maintenance or when switching spindle coolant). The ideal conditions for a smoothly functioning cooling system only exist after cleaning.
