Leading global lubricants specialist Metalube Ltd will be providing information on the complete range of nonferrous wire drawing lubricants at Wire China from 26th - 29th September 2018. The company will showcase the latest innovations in lubrication technology, designed specifically to deliver optimum performance and cost benefits.

As the wire and cable sector strives to increase efficiency and reduce costs with ever evolving high performance machines, lubricant selection is essential if machine efficiency and compliance with environmental regulations is to be both achieved and improved upon.

Although traditional lubrication techniques in many instances continue to meet the challenges of the industry sector, Metalube having identified processes where innovation is required will be promoting two new products that further improve and compliment the wire drawing process in two very demanding areas. These are:

Lubricool 250B - a fully synthetic wire drawing lubricant for the drawing of copper and plated copper wires on high speed multi-wire drawing machines. The oil free chemistry utilised to formulate Lubricool 250B delivers the maximum levels of cleanliness and lubrication required to meet the demands of multiwire machines drawing down to 0.050mm. Drawing cones and dies remain free of debris to reduce wire break frequency. This helps to achieve optimum line speeds, ease of filtration and biostability making Lubricool 250B an ideal choice for this most critical of applications.

Alumol 615W - a water miscible aluminium wire drawing lubricant for rod, intermediate and multiwire machines. To address the weaknesses of traditional neat oil technology used for the drawing of aluminium wires on high speed slip machines, Alumol 615W is offered as a water miscible alternative. Delivering significant improvements in machine cleanliness and operator acceptability, along with ease of filtration and cleanliness of the drawn wire, this technology is particularly suited to producers of automotive wires and enamelled wire producers.

Albert Molloy, Global Product Manager says: "Wire China provides a great platform for Metalube to showcase both the resources available in the region and the latest innovations in lubrication technology available, we look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand no WiF38."

Metalube exports 95% of its production to over 90 countries worldwide and has offices in Manchester, Dubai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo and Shanghai. In Manchester the company has a fully integrated lubricant manufacturing facility including new state-of-the-art laboratories. Research and development is key to the business and it is constantly investing in the Metalube® Technology Centre ensuring technical excellence and innovation across its entire range of products and services.
