Single-point lubrication system reduces downtime, simplifies daily greasing and improves safety
DANISH bucket manufacturers Viby Attachment are introducing a new single-point lubrication system to reduce downtime and simplify the task of daily greasing.
The system developed by Viby means that plant operators now need only to add lubrication to their attachment at one central greasing point rather than at multiple points.
The technology behind the new lubrication system ensures that the grease reaches all key areas instantly from just one central point. An equivalent automatic version, which is operated via the machine’s own auto-lubrication system, is also available.
The introduction of the system will reduce the time needed for greasing, optimize the delivery of grease to all critical parts of the attachment in the correct quantities, and even improve on-site safety as manual lubrication can be carried out with the bucket at one ground-level position.
Andrew Little, director of Viby Attachment UK, said: ‘Viby have consistently managed to remain ahead of the competition in terms of technology, durability and quality for many years.
‘The introduction of this new and advanced lubrication system is a perfect example of how committed our designers are to ensuring our customers see continual product improvement and, importantly, continual efficiency improvements within their operations.’
Viby Attachment’s new lubrication system has been trialled by a number of customers in the UK and Europe over the past few months, and will be fully introduced with all new Viby products this spring.
This development closely follows the introduction of a new anti-vibration system on all Viby direct-mount buckets and Quickhitch attachments.
