¿Menos lubricante dacomo resultado un mejor aserrado?
El taller usa refrigerantes tradicionales de inmersión porque éstos hacen el trabajo: mantienen la producción funcionando y prolongan la vida de la hoja de la sierra. Sin embargo, no es el escenario más limpio (vea la Figura 1). El lubricante se rocía sobre la sierra y la pieza de trabajo.
