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 positive, long-term impact on profitability for themselves and their customers: the elimination of bearing 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 operate for the end users.

In this white paper Matt Mowry, National DryLin Linear Bearings Product Manager at igus®, discusses how bearing lubrication failures affect your budget and the environment. Key Take-Aways include: Understand the hidden and unrealized costs of lubricating and re-lubricating a bearing, Understand how improper bearing lubrication can increase expenses exponentially, Discover how dry-running, self-lubricating bearings can make machines operate better and reduce your budget.
