A Fortune 500 parts manufacturer for automakers produces automotive systems, assemblies, modules, and components. Among their clients: the worlds biggest automotive brands. The company's assembly lines are equipped with robots.
AUTOMATIC LUBRICATION OF ASSEMBLY ROBOTS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE.
Lubricating the 43 gear racks and pinions of the robots is done manually, resulting in significant maintenance costs. In addition, the robots have to be switched off during these maintenance works, which reduces the production capacity of the assembly line heavily.
The installation of 10-bar single point MEMOLUB® EM automatic lubricators automates the lubrication process.
- Adequate lubrication with focus on the working parts of the gear racks and pinions.
- Intervention time of maintenance crews and machine downtime divided by 3.
