Automotive Robotic Gearboxes
Steel Mill Bearings
QUAKERTEK® AXIAL 00-32
A large North American automotive plant desired to improve robot lubrication through lower operating costs to increase their competitive advantage, improve production quality, increase output, improve supplier services, and overall reduced costs. Switching to QUAKERTEK® provided overall improvements in grease performance across major bench mark ASTM tests, resulting in over $12k/yr savings and significantly improved vendor service.
High Temperature, High Load Bearings
QUAKERTEK® CS 4602-EP
Steelscape, national supplier of metallic-coated and painted steel, was experiencing corrosion on the bearings in their Galvanize and Cold Mill lines. The corrosion was shortening bearing life, causing them to be replaced up to 9 times a year, at a cost of $6,200 per bearing for a total of cost $55,800per year. By switching to the QUAKERTEK® CS 4602-EP calcium sulfonate grease, bearing replacements have been decreased by greater than 4x providing a total savings (including materials) of $34k/year.

QUAKERTEK® UX 4615-EP
A large steel mill was accumulating plates at extreme temperatures on their output tables, causing the bearings to work under high loads and extreme temperatures and resulting in melted grease and lubrication loss. Thus, output table rolls were failing regularly with 4 roll breaks/month on average causing lowered production rates and delays. Additionally, there was increased risk to worker safety. The mill was looking for a grease that could handle the demand of the environment and solve the stated issues. By switching to QUAKERTEK® UX 4615-EP, the mill found a prouct that could handle the extrem environments of the mill and provided a nearly 15x decrease monthly materials, repairs and labor costs. While improving worker safety.
