A worldwide manufacturer of precision machine tools and automation equipment for the aerospace industry with clients such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, etc needed to lubricate mechanical components in their fast-moving 3-axis machines.
BUILD-IN LUBRICATION IN AEROSPACE TOOLING AND AUTOMATION EQUIPMENT.
At first, a centralized system was considered given the amount of lubrication points. The OEM abandoned this type of power plant given the difficult installation on 3-axis machines. The search for an alternative started.
The integration of multiple MEMOLUB® PLCD automatic lubrication systems driven by the machine's PLC in combination with 4, 6 and 8 outlet distributor blocks allowed this OEM to tailor the lubrication of up to fifty lubrication points in their machine.
- A reliable and tailored solution that is duplicated to multiple other machines produced by this OEM.
- Massive financial savings as the costs for both installation and operation is much cheaper than those of a centralised system.
