How can you benefit?

Efficiency in garment and textile manufacturing does not only depend on using high-performing textile machines, but also the right lubricants to keep the machines going and uphold productivity. Since lubricants are essential elements of textile machines, they have to match the individual component requirements to ensure that an optimal performance is achieved in terms of efficiency.

As industry partner, we are constantly collaborating with the suppliers of original textile machine equipment (OEMs). Thanks to our close cooperations, substantial improvements have been achieved in the service life and efficiency of textile manufacturing equipment used for spinning, knitting, weaving, and finishing.

Advantages of our specialty lubricant and service portfolio:

  • Longer relubrication intervals
  • Extended equipment life
  • Reduced downtime and higher productivity
  • Reduced energy consumption by optimized lubrication in many applications as chains, gearboxes, compressors, needles and rolling bearings
  • Excellent scouring properties for knitting oils
  • Biodegradable and GOTS approved lubricants, to support you in achieving your sustainability targets
  • Digital Lubricant Condition Analysis for precise predictive maintenance
  • Support from our experts all over the world

Increased efficiency for all textile production processes

Spinning, knitting, weaving or finishing – regardless of which textile production step your machines perform, our specialty lubricants are suitable for an application. The result is: higher productivity, lower consumption of valuable resources, and prolonged equipment life.

Spinning: Excellent corrosion protection

Suppliers of original textile machine equipment and operators from all over the world have been trusting our greases for rolling bearings in machines used for yarn production. Thanks to the high-quality base oils and special additive packages, customers can reliably protect their equipment and extend maintenance intervals even under high workloads and fast-running production conditions.

Knitting: Longer service life and minimum maintenance requirements 

As textile customers’ expectations and demands rise, high performance knitting machines need to deliver immaculate quality faster than ever. To efficiently manage this growing workload, high-quality knitting oils have to be applied.

With their high level corrosion protection, they increase the lifetime of needles, sinkers and other stitch forming elements. Our knitting oils can be easily removed from the fabric with conventional washing recipes thanks to their excellent scouring properties. On top, they easily match organic production requirements as they are heavy metal free and GOTS 6.0 approved.

Weaving: Long maintenance intervals due to minimum-quantity lubrication 

Protecting gearboxes and other essential parts of weaving looms over long periods of time is quite important to prevent downtimes and keep the productivity at a high level. The special formulation of our synthetic gear oils reliably provides long-term protection with less energy consumption for weaving looms even for years (compared to standard synthetic gear oils).

We can enhance weaving loom lubrication even further by offering reliable preventive maintenance and relubrication time optimization. Our innovative digital lubricant analysis service (LuCa) supports you on the regular and continuous checking of the condition of lubrication and lubricants. As a result, you can save costs and also contribute to greater sustainability since lower amounts of lubricants are required.

Finishing machines and stenter frames: Resistance and less residue 

Finishing machines for textile production have to continuously carry high workloads under the most demanding conditions as water, steam, and high temperatures. Acidic and alkaline solutions add further difficulties to the textile finishing processes. All these kinds of parameters need to be considered carefully to make sure to prevent downtimes and, in turn, uphold the highest efficiency.

Benefit from specialty lubricants and improve the efficiency of transport chain parts as well as transport chain roller bearings by keeping chain parts clean and smoothly running for a higher protection and less energy consumption – even at high temperatures up to 260˚C.

Lower your costs while boosting productivity

Become more sustainable while optimizing the efficiency of the production at the same time? Don’t miss how our products and services helped to improve the textile production processes while gaining better cost-effectiveness - and this is only one example.

What was the goal? Our global experts worked together with a knitting company in Europe which has 30 knitting machines for its knitted fabric production. The main target was to decrease the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by using Klüberoil TEX 1-32 N – our high performance and biodegradable knitting oil.  

How did we support? To transparently determine the energy savings achieved by our cooperation, the KlüberEnergy service was used.

What was the result? According to the energy consumption measurements on site, our customer achieved an energy saving of 4,7 % with a quite significant temperature decrease on the knitting machines – way better results compared to a competitor knitting oil. Beside this energy saving, the company achieved to increase the lifetime of their needles by 20 % and a decrease of oil consumption by 18 %. Not only could the textile company improve their handprint, the energy saving also lead to considerable cost reductions while keeping the production at a high level.
