Lubrication innovation for machine shop performance

February 9, 2023 3:34 pm

Mobil™ is leading R&D initiatives to create various high-end lubrication products and service packages that support trouble-free operations in different machine shop settings.

What trends do you see evolving in the machine tool industry? How are you positioned for these changing trends?
The machine tools industry focuses on improving equipment health, which, in turn, assures productivity and profitability for industries. The sector’s role has recently enhanced, with India attracting rich investments in the manufacturing industry. Duly, the machine tools market is predicted to grow by USD 1.9 billion at a CAGR of roughly 13 percent between 2020 and 2024. Now, to match rapid growth, the machine tools industry is emphasising micro-efficiency in production by ensuring optimal machine and equipment performance.

The industry is moving towards selecting superior lubrication solutions that not only improve equipment performance but also ensure optimal economic expansion. The manufacturing industry operates in varying and frequently extreme conditions, necessitating outstanding and stable equipment performance. Quality lubricants and cutting oils are critical enablers of high performance in high-pressure situations, making manufacturing operations smooth, productive, efficient, and profitable. For this, Mobil™is well positioned to actively support India’s economic expansion with innovative products and solutions for its machine tools segment. We have broad interests across a range of core industries, and the machine tools segment features prominently in our research, development, and vision for 2023 and beyond.

Discuss the benefits of incorporating Industry 4.0 and 5.0 into machine tools and metalworking.

The development of smart factories enabled by technology has ushered in the next stage of industrialisation, where people and machines work together to boost output and efficiency. This transformation of Industry 4.0, Industry 5.0 and beyond upholds the possibility of an exciting future for the machine tools sector. At Mobil, our state-of-the-art smart service solutions can overlook lubrication requirements and forewarn associated equipment faults with ample time for correction. Our Mobil ServSM Lubrication Analysis (MSLA) services lead the charge for accurate and informed oil monitoring and analysis, enabling prompt inspections, course corrections, and the elimination of sample labelling. During the past year, the MSLA program has helped industrial companies modernise their fundamental procedures for increased effectiveness and productivity. Similarly, a range of services developed for the machine tools segment taps into the benefits of digitalisation to integrate them with machine tools and metalworking operations. This promises to reap rich benefits in furthering performance, productivity and profitability.

In what ways are lubricants helpful during the machining process for quality management? What product solutions does Mobil offer?
High-quality lubricants assure equipment efficiency, increase productivity, and ensure energy efficiency. As a pioneer in developing the finest advanced lubrication products and services, Mobil is leading R&D initiatives to create various high-end lubrication products and service packages that support trouble-free operation in different machine shop settings.

The Mobil DTE™ 20 Ultra Series high-performance anti-wear hydraulic oils provide extended oil life capabilities and have demonstrated up to 2 times longer oil drain intervals versus similar competitive oils*. Further, for the machine shop, Mobil Vactra™ Oil Numbered Series premium-quality slideway lubricants are delivered to meet the accuracy requirements, aqueous coolant separability, and equipment protection of precision machine tools.

To ensure excellent performance in arduous machining operations, we have also designed the Mobilcut™ Series, a versatile high, performance and long-life metalworking fluid concentrate suitable for all moderate machining and grinding operations on all ferrous and its alloys. It has a unique formula with high-performance extreme pressure additives, corrosion inhibitor packages and biocides that prevent bacterial and fungal attacks while providing long life and stable performance during the application. Further, the Mobil Velocite™ Oil Numbered Series oils are premium performance products primarily designed to lubricate high-speed spindles in machine tools. These oils have high oxidation resistance that helps reduce critical deposit formation, resulting in improved oil life. These are some specific products Mobil delivers for the machine shop segment.

Services, particularly, have begun to play a greater role in determining business success. What are some of the services offered by Mobil?

The importance of services in assessing a company’s performance has considerably increased. Mobil has been developing industry-leading practices by implementing top digital solutions to streamline equipment monitoring and enhance performance. The Mobil™ Solcare App, for instance, digitises services and handles consumer issues. Continuous realtime monitoring, simple historical data access, trend line analysis, open communication, decreased environmental effects due to paperless reporting, and other benefits are all possible with this application. The programme automates paperwork, retains completed activities, and provides:
• Access to all data
• Assists engineers in a variety of duties while staying informed
• Creates advanced timetables
• Produces fast reports
• Provides performance evaluations.
Additionally, Mobil offers door-to-door filtration services to consumers, which lowers lubricant usage and benefits end users in terms of sustainability. We, at Mobil, are dedicated to giving our customers the best-in-class solutions while establishing industry standards.
