Mandrel Lubricant Applicator
IRMCO GEL® & IRMCO EXTREME® tube bending lubricants are most effectively and efficiently applied using the IRMCO iV® PUMP SYSTEM. This is a system comprised of a lubricant pump integrated with a ball-valve metering assembly that regulates the amount of lubricant pumped through mandrel rods and wiper dies.
Mandrel Lubricant Applicator Process
The IRMCO iV® PUMP SYSTEM provides an optimized lubricant coating while minimizing waste. A “follower plate” lowers as lubricant is pumped from the drum or pail – minimizing pump cavitation and preventing starving tooling of lubricant. The amount of IRMCO GEL® or IRMCO EXTREME® can be controlled by time and fluid pressure and the valve configurations can vary from one to six valves to accommodate different production cells or just one or two benders.
