An MQL Tribute to an Aston Martin

In 2021, the long-awaited Bond film "No Time to Die" arrived in cinemas. Together with the Bond films, the Aston Martin, too, has acquired cult status. Reason enough to produce an Aston Martin in the Blaser Technology Center with minimum quantity lubrication (MQL), thought Christoph Fankhauser, Product Manager, Neat Oils at Blaser.

The Aston Martin DB5 was machined from aluminum (AW-6082 AlSi1MgMn) at the Blaser Technology Center. Fittingly, the MQL technology used in the process is primarily used in the automotive industry. The mixture, which consists of oil and air, is guided through the spindle and the tool to reach the cutting edge.

"Almost all materials can be machined using MQL. We decided on aluminum as the material for this project, and for the fluid we used Vascomill MMS FA 2," said Fankhauser.

After production on the GROB G552, the vehicle becomes an aerosol spraying unit. The nozzles-an adjustment made to the original car's machine guns-spray Vascomill MMS FA 2 out of the headlights. In order to improve the visibility of the aerosol, the dosage was higher than usual, and several light sources were used in the machine.
