The processes of obtaining metal pieces by plastic deformation tend to be very optimized processes at the industrial level, due to the investments they make in machinery and matrices, and therefore to the large series that characterize them.
These processes require perfectly adapted conditions with regard to every specific part, including the lubricant solution that provides thebest efficiency throughout all stages of the process itself. This means taking into account the first forming stage until the protection of the parts and their preparation for subsequent phases of surface finishing, like painting, lacquering, varnishing, etc. Equally significant is the always increasing importance of best practice in terms of work conditions and environmental impact. Such complexity can only be offered by a lubricant supplier such as Cogelsa, who have the necessary expertise and long term experience in this specialist area.
In metal forming processes, testing the lubricant is key to the optimisation of the recommended solution, with the goal of avoiding the contact between part and mould, minimising friction and keeping the temperature at the right level in all areas. Only by so doing can one ensure perfect manufacture of the part, in addition to its release from the mould and the maximum tool lifetime, with minimum lubricant consumption.
Appropriate corrosion protection, as well as easy degreasing of the residual film if needed, completes the requirements of a highly efficient lubricant. The lubricant supplier’s reputation relies on its ability to find the best solution to optimise based upon a wide range of products.
With this purpose Cogelsa can count upon neat, vanishing and emulsifiable oils for cold metal forming and with different types of die release agents for semi-hot and hot forging. In addition, thanks to its highly competent technical department, Cogelsa offers the possibility of developing tailored products aimed at reaching the highest level of suitability of the lubricant.
Our network of sales engineers, together with our distributors, covering all territories of Spain and Portugal, and our international dealers, who are present in the main markets and work in close cooperation with our export department, ensure effective contact between Cogelsa and its partners, with the purpose of delivering the best technical and logistic service.
This is what Cogelsa’s efficient lubrication is about.
