FABTECH - Comprehensive Fluid Solutions for Tube & Pipe Manufacturers

Quaker Chemical presents versatile options for pipe manufacturing at FABTECH 2015

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Nov. 4, 2015 -- Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") expands the breadth of their QUAKERCOOL 700 series platform with threading process fluid offerings for the mechanical, structural, and OCTG tube and pipe applications:


QUAKERCOOL 730 TP for standard threading
QUAKERCOOL 750 TP for premium threading
QUAKERCOOL 770 TP for ultra-premium threading

"For many tube and pipe manufacturers, the annual tooling costs for threading represent a significant expense as compared to the coolant costs. Depending on the complexity of the threading process, Quaker offers multiple solutions to help extend tool life and meet the needs of manufacturers," explained Susan Conley, Tube & Pipe Product Manager.

The metalworking coolants in the QUAKERCOOL 700 series are high performance mineral oil-free microemulsions with benefits including exceptional lubrication, short term corrosion protection, clean rinsing, and a wide water quality tolerance. They effectively resist microbiological growth and do not contain chlorinated compounds, formaldehyde release agents, boron, monoethanolamine, nor secondary amines. Modularly designed for flexibility and compatibility with upstream chemistries and downstream coatings, the QUAKERCOOL 700 series delivers a single product technology for use in multiple operations and with various substrates. In addition to thread cutting, the specialized products in this portfolio can also tackle roll forming and hydrotesting.

The QUAKERCOOL 700 series joins the Quaker "front-to-back" range of processing fluids and coatings for seamless and welded tube and pipe manufacturing. At the front end, Quaker offers fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, specialty greases, hot forming and rolling lubricants, and metalworking fluids while at the back end, it provides a wide range of corrosion preventives and transport coatings, including solvent-based, water-based, and ultraviolet coatings.

Quaker will be exhibiting at Booth N4087 in the Tube & Pipe Pavilion, North Hall 2 at FABTECH 2015, the largest metal-forming, fabricating, tube & pipe, and welding tradeshow in North America. The show takes place at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from November 9-12.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
