Oil-free production means less washing and a safer working environment
US Company Irmco has developed a completely unique oil-free lubrication technology, which has offered to hundreds of Finnish and Baltic companies a very significant savings and quality improvements. Irmco's revolutionary technology based on that its viscosity increase under heat. Non-oil thin film lubricants generally needed less than half the amount on tool surface,
in comparison with traditional oil-based lubricants. In addition, typically Irmcon lubricants do not need to be washed off prior to welding, which enables a radical cost-saving and product lead-time acceleration. Irmco lubricant can be removed from the workpieces with plain water or a mild alkaline solution, reducing chemicals, water and energy consumption, typically at least 75%. The working environment is clean and the amount of waste is reduced significantly. Irmco products are designed for milling, threading, drilling, sawing, cutting, tube bending and end forming, punching, deep drawing, ect.
High quality welding and thermal cutting
Irmco products give the most powerful welding and thermal cutting anti-spatter. The substance is sprayed on welded point just before the welding process, and splashes generated do not adhere to the surface of the stick, creating an aesthetically beautiful seam, as well as the product. In turn, laser cutting material to prevent splashing, and the emergence of a burr, and allows for better for example rusty materials cutting.
Technology to top leading global brands in over 35 countries
Irmco has produced for metal forming industry a breakthrough chemical products and process optimization consulting services for more than 100 years. Today the company operates in over 35 countries, specializing in tube and sheet metal forming, machining and optimization of processes, friction analysis and robust steel molding. Wide-ranging research and field activities due to Irmco is able to offer solutions that bring tenfold savings in processes with costs.
Irmcon unique oil-free lubrication technology enables huge savings and it has replaced more than 38 million liters of traditional oil-based lubricants, which are their customers meant a savings of over EUR 600 billion. Environmentally it is, in turn, meant 38 million less liters of oil pollution. The number is so large that in succession placed barrels of crude oil, it would constitute a queue length of nearly 200 kilometers. The lubricant would be sufficient to all work operating in the North American metal forming companies for two years.
Irmcon technology is used in the production of many important components from around the world. Irmco is involved in passenger cars and trucks in structures, frames of vehicles, platforms, chassis modules, arms, exhaust systems, components, seat structures, buffer systems, oil sump and valve covers, Class 'A' trim products, then the aircraft components, heat exchangers, peat processing equipment, household appliances, pressure vessels and fire extinguishers. Irmcon technology is used include products from the following manufacturers: Toyota, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Phillips, John Deere, Harley Davidson, Honda, Rolls Royce, Nissan, Rover, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Renault, Volvo, Iveco, Whirpool and Maytag.
