Schaeffler Concept4 Lubrication

Schaefflers lubrication system that gets straight to the point.

Concept 4

Chain & Drives supply Schaefflers Concept4 lubrication system. This lubricator is suitable for minimum-quantity lubrication with grease. It has four lubricant supply line outlets that can be controlled in separate pairs. The outlets are fed by piston pumps that carry out one dispensing operation per actuation. This dispensing operation can only be triggered by external impulses (via the SPS). The lubricant cartridges (LC units) are available with a capacity of 400 cm3. An integrated multi-functional interface provides a 24 V DC power supply and I/O communication with external control systems.

The customer-specific version of the CONCEPT4 offers immense potential for OEM customers. When a minimum batch size is defined for every delivery, significant cost savings can be achieved (e.g. with regard to the number/design of the outlets and the cartridge sizes. Firmware, device with grease cartridge inserted, fully de-aerated (plug&play), complete packages with lubricant supply lines cut to length/pre-filled, customer-specific branding, and much more).
