From Practice

Solvaro Reduces Forming Lubricant Consumption by 60%

SOLVARO GmbH, developer and manufacturer of components in perforated plate and non-perforated metal, has successfully reduced the amount of lubricant consumed during production by 60%. Due to a new minimal quantity lubrication system and a reduction in the number of oil types used, not only have significant cost savings been achieved, but also less special waste and cleaner workstations.

Individual solutions demand innovative processes

A general rule in metal forming also holds true for metal perforation: the lubrication determines the production limitations. ‘Our claim of providing the ideal solution for every customer also includes the correct method of lubrication. Because it has an impact on the quality of the results and on production efficiency. This is why we develop an individual lubrication method/lubricant configuration for every order. For example, if a component has to be residue-free for further processing particularly quickly, we use an oil that evaporates quickly,’ says Bullinger. Dealing with resources in production in a sustainable way does not rule out customised processes. One look around the Solvaro production hall shows that there are no liquid assets in the form of special waste lying around on the floor here.
