High-performance speciality lubricant for precision gears in industrial robots

Reliable protection of heavily loaded components

Top performance lubrication of all gear components is ensured by the synthetic high-performance oil Klübersynth GH 6-150 made by Klüber Lubrication. This high-performance oil has been tried and tested in many applications; now it was also tested for use in modern gearboxes in automation applications, where requirements are becoming ever more taxing as power density increases. It offers reliable protection for gears and rolling bearings even under extremely high peak loads, vibrations and oscillations. Klübersynth GH 6-150 has now been approved by a leading European manufacturer of precision gearboxes as the product met the required endurance tests with facility.


"Why we considered Klübersynth GH 6-150 for this application in the first place was the fact that the oils based on polyalphaolefin, which are more commonly used, frequently led to leakages," explains Michael Griesinger, Manager Application Engineering at Klüber Lubrication. "This is why we explicitly opted for a synthetic high-performance gear oil based on polyglycol - it helps prevent leakages."


Because of its high-quality raw materials and advanced additive technologies, Klübersynth GH 6-150 offers not only excellent wear protection, but also a high resistance to fatigue and scuffing. With its excellent ageing and oxidation stability, Klübersynth GH 6-150 attains a much longer service life than products based on mineral oil. These characteristics contribute to longer service intervals and lower maintenance costs.
