Castrol’s Liquid Engineers design and deliver solutions which help to improve the process efficiency of your press shop operations.
We know that you need to stay flexible enough to respond to process modification needs if you are to produce the increasing variations of models the market demands. We also recognise that weight reduction and improved crash resistance are key targets, and that processing parts with high-strength steel results can challenge performance and tool life.
To help you tackle these challenges, we combine best in-class products and highly-experienced technical support with strong relations to the leading machine-tool manufacturers and automotive OEMs to create solutions to meet your specifications and requirements. This can help to maximise efficiency by reducing downtime as well as rework, scrap and maintenance demands.
Our solutions are also designed to help you reduce your environmental impact. Better waste reduction and chemical recycling options can help you meet compliance standards, target costs and improve process efficiency.
