Cutting Tool Wear – Wearpoint Lubrication System

Wearpoint Lubrication System - Lubrication precision

Systems reduce costly mechanical wear and downtime

  • Reduces bearing and mechanical wear
  • Reduces downtime
  • Unlimited configurations available
  • Prevents damaging friction build-up
  • Applies precise amounts of lubricant

Solve your wearpoint lubrication problems

With nearly unlimited configurations available, Unist can provide you with a wearpoint lubrication system that prevents damaging friction build-up for:

  • Bearings
  • Ball screws
  • Chains
  • Rails
  • Gears
  • Wipes
  • Wheel Flanges
  • Air motors
  • Cutting tools
  • Air cylinders
  • Welding electrodes
  • Journal bearings
  • Spindle bearings

Inadequate lubrication = Increased maintenance

Approximately 50 percent of bearing failures and 60 percent of mechanical failures can be tracked to inadequate or improper lubrication. Often there are so many wearpoints to lubricate that your standard maintenance procedures just can’t keep up with them all. But the price for not maintaining them can take an unecessary toll on your maintenance and repair budget.
Air/Oil 24/7 Wearpoint Lubrication Systems can stem this budget drain. It will apply timed, precise amounts of lubricant to reduce bearing and mechanical wear and downtime on your high speed and other conveyor or power transmission chains.

Unist engineers will design the chain or conveyor lubrication system to automatically lubricate hundreds of wearpoints with the precise frequency and volume of air and lubricant needed. No wearpoints will be missed. None will be over lubricated.

Wearpoint Lubrication System Components

Changing from Alucobond/Composite panel to Solid Aluminium Sheet

Do you find yourself having to Route 3mm solid Aluminium sheet in preference to Alucobond/Composite panel? If you are experiencing any of the following you need to talk to our John Barker (Managing Director) of Unist Australia.

  • Ragged cutting
  • Burning out cutters
  • Breaking router bits
  • Terrible surface finish
  • Just the inability to get the job done

We understand your problem, you need to lubricate the routing cutter with our 3 nozzle Coolubricator.

For help on this matter call John Barker on 02 8850 2022 or email [email protected].
