Proper lubrication management is central to the long service life of your machine tools. Choosing the right mix for the type of work you’re doing, as well as the environment you’re doing it in, will pay off in the long run. To aid in selection, Klüber Lubrication has developed a new content hub website that provides insights for a variety of markets into how the proper lubricant solutions save energy, protect equipment and enhance processes. The kind of information you’ll find includes:

  • Product spotlights that describe lubricant properties and areas of likely applications such as couplings, joints and gears.
  • Blog overviews from a Klüber expert about special application issues like the advantages of using synthetic ester oils, high viscosity index (VI) base oils or high-performance NSF H1 food-grade lubricants.
  • White papers that provide in-depth information about test procedures, lubricant properties and application techniques.
  • Case histories that detail successful application in various industries, climates and hazardous environments.
  • News releases on the latest developments in lubricant solutions for new applications, government regulations and other timely issues.


  • Ozone Provides Solution To Bacteria In Coolants

    Bacterial growth in metalworking fluids eventually leads to machine downtime. Furthermore, shop owners and plant managers see an increased cost of purchasing replacement fluids and the disposal of spent fluids.

  • The Case For Supplementary Fire Suppression

    Systems designed to put out fires inside machine tools can provide a level of protection that external systems such as overhead sprinklers cannot. They cost a small percentage of the investment represented by today’s CNC machines and certainly far less than repairing major damage caused by a fire. 

  • Machining Dry Is Worth A Try

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
