Project Scope: Reduce consumption of bending lubricant and improve mandrel tooling life over the competitive “GEL-Type” product.
Metal Substrate: ALUMINIZED 409 STAINLESS STEEL TUBE
Material Dimensions: 3.0” O.D. TUBE—0.047” (1.2 mm) THICKNESS
Tooling Information: CHROMED STEEL MANDREL
IRMCO Product: IRMCO EXTREME® 460-81A : USED AS RECEIVED
- Improved tool life 15% over competitive bending lubricant.
- Reduced lubricant consumption 45%, while improving part finish and sustaining tool life increases.
- Further optimized bending process with customer to reduce or eliminate leaks, increase pump and valve lives of application equipment.
- Parts are able to be welded without prior cleaning.
