Increased efficiency in chain lubrication: A path to sustainable maintenance

The professional lubrication and care of chains plays a decisive role in the maintenance of machines and systems. It should be possible to carry out effective chain maintenance during operation because chains usually play a central role in the production process and therefore cannot simply be switched off.   

At simatec, as the world market leader for automatic lubricant dispensers, we are proud to offer innovative solutions. These go far beyond conventional maintenance methods, revolutionising the lubrication of conveyor and drive chains and contributing significantly to increased efficiency, energy savings and sustainability. In this blog post, you will learn how simalube optimises the maintenance of your chains and how this benefits your business.

Numerous advantages of automatic lubrication with simalube

Increased efficiency in maintenance

The regular and precise dispensing of lubricants is essential to extend the service life of chains and ensure smooth operation. With simalube, chains can be lubricated automatically for up to one year, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual lubrication processes and resulting in significant efficiency gains.

Reduced downtimes

Automatic lubrication means fewer interruptions for manual maintenance work. This significantly increases the availability of your systems and boosts their productivity.

Time saving

Lubrication is automatic, continuous and extremely reliable. Maintenance personnel save valuable time and can concentrate on other important tasks.

Constant lubrication

simalube ensures consistent lubrication, minimising wear and extending the service life of chains and other components.

Saving energy by reducing friction

Friction is one of the biggest enemies of efficiency in industrial processes. Continuous lubrication with simalube significantly reduces friction in chains. Less friction leads to a lower load on the drive systems and reduces energy requirements. The resulting savings in energy and spare parts contribute to significant cost savings. 

Sustainability and environmental responsibility

Sustainability is a central component of our corporate philosophy at simatec. Our products are designed to be environmentally friendly and to conserve resources. This is reflected in the following points:

  • Less lubricant consumption: Thanks to precise metering, only the required amount of lubricant is used. This is fed to the chains with pinpoint accuracy and in the required quantity, in most cases via specially designed brushes. No valuable lubricant is wasted.
  • Environmentally friendly materials: simalube dispensers are made of recyclable materials and thus contribute to reducing the ecological footprint.
  • Reusability: simalube lubricant dispensers can be reused
