Specialty lubricants for automotive manufacturing

Automotive manufacturing and maintenance place very high demands on machines and materials due to continuous operation, high temperatures and harsh operating environments. Any machine stoppage for maintenance or repair has a major impact on production. Specialty lubricants can help to reduce downtime. They protect equipment against wear and friction even under harsh conditions, enabling long lifetimes and extended maintenance intervals. The result is the best possible equipment availability, which translates into higher efficiency and productivity.

At a glance: specialty lubricants for automotive manufacturing

  • High productivity and long lifetimes – with industrial lubricants for numerous application areas.
  • High machine availability – from long maintenance intervals, wear protection and the cleaning action of special lubricants.
  • Optimal lubrication processes – with support for preparation of operating lubrication charts and improvement of maintenance processes.
  • Cost optimisation – through low lubricant consumption, extended relubrication intervals, straightforward application and energy saving
  • Proven quality – thanks to extensive testing and close cooperation with equipment manufacturers and operators.

Specialty lubricants for manufacturing and maintenance

Rollers and bearings, actuators and gear units, chains and linear guides: for numerous applications in automotive manufacturing and maintenance, Klüber Lubrication develops and produces matching special lubricants that have been proven in hard practical use. Whether on robots or on conveyors of all types, for cable lubrication units or air compressors, in every situation they enable long-term equipment availability and high process reliability. Specialty lubricants from Klüber Lubrication often save a lot of time and money.


Conveyor systems in paint and body repair shops require lubricants that protect chains, rollers and guide rails against wear and corrosion and do not affect the seals of bearings and rolling elements. Klüber Lubrication offers an extensive portfolio of suitable lubricants compatible with main paint types that maintain their lubricity even at high temperatures and with aggressive media in the system. They feature low residue formation and high ageing resistance, and they prevent contamination of the work pieces.

Solutions for long-term lubrication

Simple, clean and precise application of lubricants is essential for reliable lubrication in industrial deployment. Starting with the development stage, Klüber Lubrication focuses on easy lubricant metering, whether manual or automatic. Our Klübermatic lubricant dispensers facilitate continuous and efficient lubrication. They supply grease or oil to lubrication points at regular intervals to ensure that the optimal amount of lubricant is present at the friction points – at all times and without additional effort.

Optimal consumption and low cost

The services of Klüber Lubrication extend much further than just the lubricant itself. For example, in the framework of the KlüberEfficiencySupport programme our experts analyse all lubrication points and industrial lubricants used in a plant. Together with the customer, they draft an operational lubrication chart and determine optimisation potential and measures to improve maintenance processes.
