The Tachus grades are a range of specially designed slideway lubricants.
To be efficient, machine tool slideways must be parallel with the machine bed. Any tendency towards irregular oil
film pressure and ‘slip stick’ action must be avoided as this adversely affects the machining operations.
The range of Tachus oils have been manufactured from carefully selected base oils and anti-wear, extreme pressure
and anti-corrosion additives. They also include special tacky and lubricity additives, which afford good lubricity even
at low traverse speeds.
• Wide range of viscosities available
• Contains extreme pressure additives for arduous conditions
• Excellent lubricity
• Good corrosion protection
The Tachus range has been specially designed for machine tool slideway applications. They can be recommended for
certain combined hydraulic and slideway systems. The lower viscosity grades are suitable for vertical slides and the
higher viscosity grades are suited to horizontal slides.
