Lubricating Machine Tools

  • L. H. Haygreen


Consistency in dimensional accuracy and surface finish of parts produced on machine tools is important to the efficient operation and life of those parts in service. It is also important to the speed with which they can be assembled to mating parts on modern high-speed production assembly lines.
