Sheet metal hydraulic oil success story

Situation

Spray Technics is a CNC precision sheet metal component and assembly manufacturer and exporter in India. To lubricate their Amada Turret Punch Presses, they used a generic, non-Mobil™ ISO VG 46 hydraulic oil. The limited performances of this lubricant required the facility to perform at least one annual oil change for the presses. In addition, it was not protecting the servo valves, which had to be replaced every two years.

Recommendation

After an analysis of the machinery, the ExxonMobil Lube Engineer recommended Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil, which provides superior system cleanliness and extended wear protection over a longer working period. Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis service was also introduced to monitor the operating conditions.

Result

Since the implementation of Mobil DTE 10 Excel 46 hydraulic oil, the oil change interval has been extended to two years – representing a 100 percent improvement over past performance. Additionally, there have been no reports of valve failure. These benefits yielded an annual cost savings of about US $5,300 and enhanced production reliability.

*This proof of performance is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
