The aluminium forging cycle aims at eliminating graphitised oils, which, besides creating an unpleasant workplace, tend to lower the temperature of the dies. The DRY LUB SYSTEM has partly solved these problems, improving the quality of the forged piece.
A hot-melt dry lubricant is applied at every production cycle. This operation ensures good lubrication and does not reduce the temperature of the dies, thus improving the smoothness of the material. This system was developed eight years ago for the “COBAPRES” cycle, and today is used also for forging aluminium.
