The auto lube and semi-auto lube systems are similar in design, with the only difference being the PLC automated timer, and piston activated pump vs. the hand activated pump at specified intervals.
The auto lube system is capable of providing grease to all of the main drive columns through the already conveniently located grease manifold. Based on cavity size and RPM’s the proper amount of grease can be dispensed from the grease reservoir to a column on the fly, during production runs using a PLC timer. Thus, extending the life of columns which reduces down time for maintenance.
