The True Cost of Bearing Lubrication
Today, machine and equipment manufacturers are feeling more pressure than ever to reduce costs without sacrificing machine performance and this balancing act can be difficult to achieve. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often overlook a simple solution that can have a posi- tive, long-term impact on profitability for themselves and their customers: the elimination of bear- ing lubricant. By eliminating lubrication systems where possible, OEMs can reduce production costs, while at the same time making their equipment more marketable and less expensive to op- erate for the end users. This white paper presented by igus details the hidden costs of lubrication, and how you can eliminate maintenance costs and lower production costs.
