Röhm Products of America has introduced a fully automatic lubrication device for HSK-spindle tool-clamping systems. Lubritool is designed to minimize costly and time-consuming manual lubrication maintenance work as well as to prevent machine downtime.

The device is available in HSK-A63 and HSK-A100 interfaces and includes a Lubriflux grease cartridge for as many as 100 cycle applications. It is stored in the machine’s tool magazine and is swapped into the spindle upon command by the machine’s control to provide the ideal amount of lubrication directly to the tool clamping system. After a few seconds, it is placed back into the tool magazine, where it remains until the next lubrication cycle.

The company says that HSK clamping sets should be serviced after approximately 75 hours of operation (or 20,000 tool changes) to ensure process reliability. The manual lubrication process usually requires users to shut the machine down, interrupting workflow to the point that operators often extend the time between lubrications or neglect the process altogether. Deviations from the optimum lubrication protocols can result in machine performance deterioration and/or failure. The Lubritool is intended to prevent this situation by automating the lubrication process.
