Oils and glues

In knife manufacturing, cutting oils, tapping lubricants and machine lubricants are products used to facilitate and improve machining and assembly operations. Here's an overview of each of these products and their role in the knife manufacturing process:

Cutting oil :

  • Cutting oil is a lubricant specially designed for machining operations such as milling, drilling, turning, etc. It is used to reduce friction between the cutting tool and the workpiece.
  • It is used to reduce friction between the cutting tool (such as a milling cutter or drill bit) and the workpiece (such as handle inserts or knife liners).
  • Cutting oil helps to dissipate the heat generated during machining, helping to extend cutting tool life and improve the quality of machined surfaces.
  • In knife manufacturing, cutting oil is often used to shape the various metal parts prior to final assembly.

Lubricants for tapping :

  • Tapping is the process of creating threads inside pre-drilled holes to accommodate screws and bolts.
  • Tapping lubricants are used to reduce friction between the tap and the material, thus facilitating the tapping process and avoiding the risk of tap breakage.
  • These lubricants also improve the quality of tapped threads, producing cleaner, more consistent threads.
  • In knife manufacturing, tapping lubricants are essential when securing various knife components, such as handle inserts or pocket clips.

Machine lubricators :

  • Machine lubricants are used to ensure the smooth running and long life of machines used in knife manufacture, such as presses, grinding machines or cutting machines.
  • These lubricants reduce wear on moving parts and bearings, minimizing friction and extending machine life.
  • They also keep machines clean by preventing the build-up of debris and dust.

Choosing the right lubricants for each stage of knife manufacturing is essential to optimize precision, quality and durability. The proper use of these products helps to improve the efficiency of machining and assembly operations, while preserving machines and work tools.
