Advances in modern CNC machines have increased productivity and increased the need for better lubrication in order to keep up with the faster spindle speeds and demands of today’s machine tools. These advances have also led to an increase in metalworking fluids being generated and emitted into the air. These airborne metalworking fluids can pose a serious health threat to the employees in the metal working industry and is a priority focus of OSHA.
