S21: Separating Fact from Friction 2.0

Breakout Session | Wednesday, June 13, 2018 | 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Traditionally, testing and comparing lubricants is time consuming and risky to tools. Most new lubricant formulas are based on bench chemistry – not actual field trials. Past lubricant failures can create an atmosphere of mistrust and reluctance to try new technology. Dr. Taylan Altan started using a cup draw tool to measure and compare stamping lubricant performance. This presentation explains a ranking method with extremely accurate real-life correlation to actual heavy stamping.
