                                       Powered by MetalForming mag- azine, with support by the Soci- ety of Tribologists and Lubrica- tion Engineers, Tower Metalworking Fluids, Industrial Innovations, Fortech Products, Unist and Fuchs Lubricants, the inaugural Lubrication Technology for Metalformers conference promises to be a content-rich event. Attendees will gain important updates on new lubricants for stamping, and tool and die machining; insights on how to eval- uate new formulations and select the right lubricant for the job; and details on techniques for applying lubricant to ensure optimum application while minimizing waste.
From the first-day keynote on con- siderations for selection, use and dis- posal of lubricants to the second-day final session on parts-cleaning funda- mentals, more than a dozen detailed sessions provide a wealth of practical information along with plenty of net- working opportunities.
Day 1
Keynote Presentation
The Responsible Approach to Selection, Use and Disposal of Metalworking Fluids in the Manufacturing Environment
Metalworking fluids are a complex mixture of chemicals that directly impact employees, part quality, machine performance, and compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations. This presentation discusses what manufacturing facilities must consider in order to achieve the highest overall production rates at the lowest part cost.

Keynote Presentation
How to Evaluate Lubricants— A Data-Driven Approach
for Metalformers
Appropriate selection of test meth- ods and testing conditions is necessary for the reliable evaluation of lubricants, with test parameters simulating real production conditions where the lubri- cant is used. This study discusses the use of a practical test method—the cup-drawing test—for evaluation of stamping lubricants.
