Machining Lubricant Containing Exfoliated Graphite

Executive Summary Machining processes in high production environment usually adopt flood cooling with water-based lubricants and various chemicals. In order to minimize the lubricant use and waste (which also eliminate centralized pumping stations), minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) techniques have been adopted, which generate mist of oil droplets....

Novel Lubrication for MAF Processing

Executive SummaryManual labor remains one of the most expensive operating costs for machine shops. This MSU-developed technology seeks to improve the use of Magnetic Field-Assisted Finishing (MAF) to reduce the amount of hand finishing, particularly for mold cavities. Additionally, this technology seeks to improve the lifetime of abrasive particles,...

Powder Composition to Achieve a Near Full Density with Stainless Steel in 3D Printing

Executive SummaryCurrently, 3D printing of stainless steel yields a porous product that requires infiltration with another metal, such as bronze, to increase its density. This infiltration process can drastically alter the mechanical properties of the 3D printed part, rendering it unusable for most industrial applications. MSU’s innovative technology...
