Q8Oils will be usingits stand at ME North East to promote ‘The Challenge’ – the company’s recentlylaunched metal working fluid initiative for machine shop owners and operators –which offers new customers theopportunity to trial soluble and neat metal cutting fluids in their machineshops.


Commenting for Q8Oils, direct sales manager Jeremy Dineen says: “The Challenge was launched because weare so confident that customers will find a Q8 metal working fluid that isideal for their processes and applications, and saves them money.”


Q8Oils isproud that it offers one of the most comprehensive portfolios of neat andsoluble cutting fluids in the UK and is convinced that, by offering apayment-by-results trial, The Challenge will prove the benefits of Q8 metalworking fluids to manufacturers.


After firstestablishing clear, mutually-agreed objectives, Q8Oils will set up the trialand then monitor on-going performance of the lubricant to ensure that it, and themachine, are operating at peak performance. A comprehensive report on theresults is presented during the trial.


As well asperformance requirements, Q8Oils also recognises its customers’ commercialneeds, explains Jeremy. “By offering optimum, high and extreme performanceproducts, we can help customers balance criteria, such as surface finish, theseverity of the working environment and productivity, against cost.”


Q8Oils willalso be using its stand to promote the recently launched Q8 Brunel, its latestrevolution in water-soluble machining and grinding fluids. The Q8 Brunel range hasbeen developed to out-perform all other fluids and has already been successfullytried and tested with manufacturers across Europe where, for example, Q8 BrunelXF 343 has fulfilled and passed the criteria for Snecma Safran 455-201-0-00-Baerospace approval.


Q8 Brunel isdesigned to be fully compliant with latest European industry legislation resultingin products that are free from boron, boric acid, chlorinated paraffin,secondary amine, formaldehyde releasing biocides, nitrites, cresols and phenols.


“Following extensiveresearch and both laboratory and field-trial testing, we have reinvented theway in which the industry approaches soluble MWF chemistry by developing acompletely new approach that focuses on three pillars – product performance,environmental protection and operator health,” says Jeremy.


All grades aresuitable for use in hard or soft water, with ultra low foaming properties.  Q8 Brunel metal working fluids are ideallysuited for high speed machining applications and demanding fluid deliverypressures found on modern machine tools. Subject to customer requirements,significant improvements of tool life and surface finish are achievable.
