The Importance of Bandsaw Coolants and Lubricants

May 15, 2020

When working with bandsaw blades and machines, it is vital to have a trusty bandsaw coolant or lubricant on hand to help make cutting operations smoother. Coolants and lubricants are required in many basic procedures to keep tools and machinery working well, and is a necessary component of maintenance. Bandsaws generate a high amount of friction and heat, and as such coolants are needed to keep the temperature regulated to avoid breakdowns and other negative effects to your machinery over time.


Industrial Bandsaw Services is a premier provider not only on bandsaw products, but also accessories such as bandsaw coolants and lubricants. Over the decades, we have seen how different types of coolants and lubricants have benefitted different machines and different applications, and have learned some valuable lessons about how choosing the right product will help boost productivity.


Here is a breakdown of some of the coolant and lubricant products we offer, and the benefits each of them provide:


Semitech GS

The Semitech GS is a semi-synthetic water solube, suitable for general machining of various metals including stainless steel and most aluminum. It is especially excellent for automatic or CNC equipment. It is a low foaming, low misting product, and is able to resist rancidity and tolerate hard water for a longer sump life, resulting in less dumping and lower maintenance costs in the long run. If you need something to help you settle chips and fines quickly without any sticky residue carry-out, this is the product for you.


Semitech 650

The Semitech 650 bandsaw coolant is most suitable for medium-duty machining, sawing, and grinding. When using this product, you will need to dilute it with water. Start with one part of the coolant and 20 parts of water, adjusting from there as you test it out. The product is completely transparent, allowing the operator to easily observe their work piece. It contains low oil and has excellent hard water stability, and is ideal for central systems and large individual sumps.


Clean Lube 3000

The Clean Lube 3000 is a minimum quantity lubricant. It can be used as a spray mist or applied drop by drop. Suitable for medium to heavy-duty applications, it can be used in more severe operations such as sawing, broaching, and tapping. It is a non-staining product, and is known to be very operation-friendly in general thanks to its non-toxic, non-hazardous, and low odor properties.
