Is offensive odor unavoidable? Why does it produced? How can it be reduced?

 KANSAI TOKUSYU KOSAKU-YU, who is manufacturing made-to -order lubricant with KTK brand, explained its causes and countermeasures to the participants.

P1010324  P1010325

Dilution method, concentration control,  supplementing undiluted solution, antiseptic measures and etc. are key factors to manage as “right-lubricant-in-the-right-timing”

Those proper management  help reduction of an undiluted solution, extension of tool life and reduction of failure rate. And as a result operators can reduce growth inhibition of a microbe that is a cause of offensive odor of water-soluble cutting fluid.

Following to the presentation,as lubricant users, participants asked a lot of questions:

* To handle water-soluble and water-immiscible cutting lubricant for the same machine

* Replacement schedule of machining lubricant

* To reduce  intensive malodors

Discussion continued even at the coffee session among participants.

Send questions to  KANSAI TOKUSYU KOSAKU-YU if there is any from here.

 

In November special exhibition on  ”Industry-Academia Collaboration”, is held at the MOBIO technology hall, informing technologies developed by 27 universities and colleges.

At Nov. 19 MOBIO Cafe Meeting, four colleges reported their technology development status, followed by proactive discussion about industry-academia collaboration with participants.

Always consider the MOBIO Cafe Meeting is the place to go for direct communication with exhibitors.

1) Nara National College of Technology

They are developing “Environmental Sensing Robotics” to obtain accurate farming conditions to overcome population aging of farmers. In case of measuring and recording temperature and humidity in green houses at large farms, staff shortage is a major issue to resolve. So they study a self-traveling robotics equipped with GPS and temperature sensors to run automatically to collect data and to visualize its data at smart phones or PCs.

2) National Institute of Technology, Akashi College

Their laser range sensor for wheelchairs will detect any obstacles in the direction just a blind people uses a white cane to proceed. Laser beam will be emitted by rotating prism to ground and to detect accurate condition in advance for safety driving.

3) National Institute of Technology, Wakayama College

Convenient public transportation is available in an urban area but not in a rural area. They are developing on-demand bus service control system that allows users to make phone reservations to an operator, avoiding inconveniences to use smartphones for seniors.

4) Osaka Prefecture University College of Technology

The most impact on firefighter comfort is the carrier and harness assembly. Osaka’s rescue belt is equipped with a camera, a mic and a speaker and designed for a fire marshal to order the field fire fighter from remote location. Simply flipping the switch, telecommunication is available.

Next Cafe Meeting is Dec. 2

Technologies will be presented by
