Automotive OEM: Crossmember

 

Project Scope: Reduce concentration and consumption of stamping lubricant while replacing competitive, emulsifiable-oil stamping fluid.

Metal Substrate: SP251-540P HRPO

Material Dimensions: 3.1 mm THICKNESS

IRMCO Product: IRMCO FLUIDS® 323-00K @ 4:1 Ratio (20%)

Process Improvements:

  • IRMCO FLUIDS® 323-00K improved tool life over competitive fluid 15% and improved part surface finish.
  • Maintained same press speed and part quality at reduced concentration.
  • IRMCO FLUIDS® 323-00K were welded through without issue and passed pretreatment and finishing compatibility without defect.
  • Parts passed aged part welding and cleaning testing through customer specified pretreatment processes.
