Tired of managing your manual lubrication system? With under/over greasing the no. 1 cause for premature bearing failure, it may be time for you to reconsider your options.

That’s where Schaeffler comes in. Save time and get straight to the point with the company’s new single-point automatic lubricator, CONCEPT1.

Available for use in a wide variety of applications, including electric motors, pumps, conveyor belts and ventilators, this new system precisely and continuously supplies the proper amount of lubricant when your equipment needs it. 

According to David French, Product Manager for Industry 4.0 Solutions at Schaeffler, “We designed CONCEPT1 to provide our customers with a versatile and easy-to-use solution that delivers the right grease in the right quantity at just the right intervals.”
