Techno-Sommer’s Sharpshooter system addresses a number of lube challenges, including, among others, hard-to-reach lubrication points and the unacceptability of mist lubrication. Working off standard shop air at up to 90 psi, it can place a drop of lubricant at up to 1m away with pinpoint accuracy. A pressurized tank generates internal pressures up to 750 psi. When a pulse is generated, a fixed drop size is dispensed. Up to eight dispensing nozzles ranging in size from 5mm3 to 100mm3 can be attached to one tank.

Abanaki’s Mighty Mini® SST is intended for the removal of unwanted oil in coolants and parts washers. Capabilities include removal rates of up to two gallons of medium-weight oil per hour, depending on belt selection. An improved wiper blade system fits securely in the trough and allows for cleaning on both sides of the belt. Its light-weight and small footprint allow it to fit underneath most CNC machines.
Oil-Rite’s Hydracision multi-point lubrication system can distribute to as few as 12 or up to hundreds of separate points. It combines efficient hydraulic movement of fluid with the precision of positive displacement injection. The reservoir housing contains a gear pump motor which pressurizes the outlet for uniform fluid distribution. A PLC with programmable display allows selection of lube cycles, while a low-level switch prevents operation when oil supply is depleted.
Master Chemical’s TRIM® OV 2200 is a bio-based straight oil free of volatile organic compounds.

SKF’s new CMSS 200 Machine Condition Indicator is a low-cost, battery-powered, stand-alone monitoring solution for semi-critical machines with constant operating conditions that usually aren’t evaluated on a regular basis. Independent and self-sufficient, it periodically measures vibration and velocity, and monitors for problems relating to misalignment, imbalance, etc. It also measures enveloped acceleration to detect bearing degradation and keeps a running check on operating temperatures. Built-in intelligence evaluates data and helps avoid false alarms. Performing like a car’s check-engine light, the device indicates alarm status on three LEDs. Individual units can be stud-mounted or epoxied to the monitored equipment.
