What are the challenges facing the textile industry?

Changing atmospheric humidity, temperature fluctuations and high loads are just some of the challenges affecting textile production. At the same time, the textile industry wants to act in a sustainable manner in order to live up to its own entrepreneurial responsibility and protect the environment. Lubricants designed for the needs of the textile industry made by Klüber Lubrication contribute to compliance with these requirements, delivering increased productivity that forms part of the sustainability improvement plan at the customer.

Where are lubricants in use in the textile industry?

We see lubricants as a fundamental design element of textile machines. They have to match the individual component requirements to ensure optimal performance is achieved as efficiently as possible. With our speciality lubricants we can cover the entire production process in the textile industry, including:

  • Spinning machines: excellent corrosion protection for bearings, spinning turbines, opening rollers, spinning pumps, and spinnerets
  • Knitting machines: long service life with minimum maintenance requirements for needles and sinkers, slide rails and guide bars
  • Weaving machines: longer intervals between maintenance operations due to minimum-quantity lubrication for gears, gripper looms and chains
  • Finishing machines: resistance to water, steam, acidic and alkaline solutions for steamers, rolling bearings, compensators and rollers
  • Stenter frames: less residue due to high separating effect on conveyor chains, adjustment spindles, needle bars and clips

Increasing productivity by 150 percent with lubricants for the textile industry

With the goal of making a significant contribution to sustainability in textile production, Klüber Lubrication developed a synthetic gear oil with properties matched to a textile machine’s requirements. Our synthetic gear oil increased productivity by 150 percent and, as a result, maintenance intervals were extended from 8,000 to 20,000 hours. The result:

  • a considerably lower consumption of natural resources
  • efficient and reduced amount of material used
  • less waste
  • increased occupational safety due to lower lubricant consumption
  • higher cost effectiveness for the operator

By using the optimal lubricant for the task, sustainability and performance can go hand in hand.
