Higher reliability in weaving machines with less downtime

Synthetic high-performance gear oil for wear protection and higher efficiency

Munich, 12 November 2015 – Today's weaving machines are operated constantly under a maximum of stress. To offer the highest possible productivity under these conditions, they have to function with utmost reliability and downtime has to be reduced to a minimum. Lubricants play a decisive role in this context as they reduce friction wear to protect components against premature wear and tear. It is especially for the long-term or lifetime lubrication of sliding friction points in weaving machines that the tribology expert Klüber Lubrication has developed the new high-performance gear oil Klübersynth 80 KV.

"Utmost functional reliability, maximum efficiency and dependable machine availability contribute to a reduction of production costs in the textile industry of today," explains Christian Forster, Market Manager Textile Industry at Klüber Lubrication. "Being a vital component of any weaving machine, the gearbox must be optimally protected against wear and scuffing damage. Klüber Lubrication has developed its new polyglycol-based special oil with good ageing resistance to match this kind of application."

Besides its outstanding wear protection and load-carrying capacity, the high-performance gear oil Klübersynth 80 KV shows an excellent viscosity-temperature behaviour supporting the formation of sufficient lubricant film even at high temperatures. Lower friction coefficients enable higher application efficiency, leading to lower energy consumption. Moreover, the excellent ageing and oxidation stability of the synthetic base oil can lead to a significantly longer service life than mineral oil-based products. This enables service intervals to be extended. Even for-life lubrication is possible in some cases.

Klübersynth 80 KV is recommended by the Italian textile machine manufacturer ITEMA for the lubrication of gears, plain bearings, needle cams and other sliding friction points in type R 9500 weaving machines made by ITEMA.
