Lubricant reservoir for long term lubrication

Lubricant reservoir for long term lubrication

Schneeberger's UK distributor Moore International reports that all types of MNN Minirail carriages can now be ordered with optional Lube-S lubricant. Other carriage types available on request. The ingenious long-term lubrication Lube-S is a lubricant reservoir. It applies the lubricant externally in all orientations directly to the ball recirculation tracks by means of the capillary effect.

Lube-S is integrated into the inside of the carriage and lubricates all ball bearings that are directly under load. Lube-S ensures lubrication even during short-stroke applications. The Lube-S oil reservoir contacts the ball bearings at a single point. The push forces of the carriages are therefore not affected and the smoothness of the Minirail system is maintained at a high level. The external dimensions of the carriages remain the same. The maximum stroke is therefore not affected.

Using the long-term lubrication Lube-S, Minirail carriages are maintenance-free for 20,000km under normal environmental conditions and the corresponding load. The carriage length remains unchanged and does not affect the maximum stroke. Lube-S is said to be the optimal lubricant for all short-stroke applications, and lubricates the ball bearings which are directly under load.
