The Numbers Game

Tool-X is a nanofluid that changes the characteristics of existing metalworking fluids by ‘manipulating’ speeds, feeds and metal removal rates using nanotechnology. The science behind Tool-X can potentially change metal cutting dynamics, improve surface finishes and extend tool life. The backstory of this technology is just as fascinating as its production results.

Solar Atmospheres Now Offers Oil Quenching Capabilities

Solar Atmospheres Now Offers Oil Quenching Capabilities

Solar Atmospheres provides low pressure carburizing (LPC) in vacuum to increase the surface hardness/strength of gearing for improved friction and wear. LPC delivers clean parts with less distortion reducing post process finishing operations, and costs. For lower hardenability alloys and/or to attain higher core hardness on gears, Solar now offers vacuum oil quenching!
