|203M||Armor Plate with Moly-Machine and Way Oil|
Special problems are encountered in the lubrication of ways and slides of machine tools. At low speeds and under heavy loads, the lubricant tends to wipe off, producing higher friction. When the machine is operated at high speeds and low loads, a fluid film can form that will lift and float the slide. Since this film varies in thickness, it can produce wavy surfaces on the parts being machined or cause them to run off size. This is a hydroplaning effect, much like slick automobile tires on a wet surface.
