What is the benefit of having a Central Grease Lubrication System?

A Central Grease Lubrication System is offered to make lubricating pivot points and cam followers easier by putting all the grease points in easy accessible areas. It gives easy access to the maintenance personnel eliminating having to go underneath the lift table to service all lubrication points. Central lubrication minimizes the requirement to reach into tight spaces that otherwise may be neglected and not receive lubrication per the recommended interval.

What to expect if equipment is hot dip galvanized?

The hot dip galvanizing process has a number of factors to consider. Extended delivery-the equipment is first built, tested dismantled and shipped in sub-assemblies to the galvanizer. After the hot dip galvanizing process is completed the equipment is returned and re-assembled, there is often some element of rework such as re-threading tapped holes etc. Distortion-the sub-assemblies consist of many different steel materials and thicknesses. The hot dip process and the cooling stages often distort the lighter gauge steel, although structurally sound there is an aesthetic difference. Additional costs-this process involves the initial assembly, dismantling into sub-assemblies, shipping costs, re assembly and rework. However in the right application the additional costs are considered to be a good investment in the extended lifetime of the equipment.
