Fuchs Renep CGLP 68 slideway oil is developed together with the Tribological Laboratory at the University of Darmstadt and the Laboratory for Tribology and Sliding Technologies (SKC-Technik).
Fuchs Renep CGLP 68 slideway oil has carefully selected base oils and matched additives guarantee almost friction free movement at the lubrication points. Special attention during development was also paid to compatibility with the water-miscible cutting fluids used in machine tools.
Fuchs Renep CGLP 68 slideway oil has Anti-corrosion agents and ageing (oxidation) inhibitors are effective at relatively low temperatures (working temperature = room temperature). EP and anti-wear additives guarantee long machine life and exceptionally good operational reliability.
Fuchs Renep CGLP 68 slideway oil has selected additive combinations create layers which have a low internal friction. Furthermore, polar surface active substances form a stable, adhesive lubricating film. This reduces friction when movement starts, lowers the initial current consumption and optimises the efficiency of the machine tool.
• Stable lubricating film
• Low coefficient of friction
• Avoidance of stick-slip
• Good EP properties and excellent protection against wear
• Excellent corrosion protection (steel and non-ferrous metals)
• Good demulsification, optimum compatibility with water-miscible cutting fluids
• Excellent compatibility with plastic materials (slideway materials)
• No discolouration of the slideway material
To reduce the power consumption during slideway start-ups and feed situations, special attention must be paid to the lubricant between the sliding elements. Important parameters for the selection of the most suitable slideway oil are the cutting fluid, the slideway materials and the geometry of the lubrication grooves.
Fuchs Renep CGLP 68 slideway oil lubrication intervals must be matched to the machining operation and the design of the machine. Apart from the classic cast-cast, steel-cast and steel plastic slideway materials, there is an increasing trend towards linear guides in machine tools.
The RENEP CGLP series of products are also recommended for these machine elements. Moreover, RENEP CGLP 68 can also be used as a hydraulic oil according to DIN 51 524-2, ISO 6743-4.
This product can thus perform the functions of a lubricant and a hydraulic oil. The RENEP CGLP oils were developed with the relevant technical application requirements of slideway oils in mind. RENEP CGLP slideway oils were supplied to all leading machine tool and component manufacturers.
