Tab Stock Lubrication System™

Product Info

Proven precision & performance

The tab stock lubrication system uses the Unist Mini-Roller and is an ideal solution for lubricating narrow coils commonly used in tab making.

When the Mini-Roller is combined with the SmartFlow® controller, the Mini-Roller's patented internally fed design will evenly apply lubricant to both sides of the coil stock. Programmable control ensures consistent lubrication resulting in increased production and decreased downtime.

A cleaner press, reduced fluid consumption, and decreased downtime from inadequate lubrication are just some of the benefits of implementing the Unist Tab Stock Lubrication System.

Full-featured monitoring

The SmartFlow® provides full-featured monitoring of critical parameters such as fluid level, pressure and flow (optional sensors are required) and alerts users with an audible alarm and red LED. An external alarm relay can also be wired directly to a press control.
