New Schaeffler semifluid grease optimises automatic relubrication

Schaeffler has been developing linear guidance systems for over 50 years, and its all-new Arcanol SEMIFLUID grease plays a pivotal role in the development of its Linear systems.

 

Perfect for long lubricant supply lines 

The viscosity of the new semifluid grease of consistency class NLGI 00 allows supply lines between lubricators and lubrication points of up to 30 meters in length, even with cross-sections as small as 4 mm on the outside and 2.5 mm on the inside. This means that you can benefit from high flexibility even when fitting the lubricant supply lines. Another plus resulting from excellent flow properties is the optimised grease distribution at the end pieces of the carriages.

Perfect for Industry 4.0 condition-based greasing solutions

Arcanol SEMIFLUID is also ideally suited for use with Schaeffler DuraSense. DuraSense is designed to monitor the lubrication condition in linear guidance systems and can trigger relubrication by our CONCEPT2 to CONCEPT8 automatic lubricators. In this way, Schaeffler DuraSense increases the operational reliability of your entire linear guidance solution while optimising lubricant consumption. 

Perfect for drive units of Schaeffler linear guidance systems and robot applications 

Due to the special suitability of Arcanol SEMIFLUID for ball screw drives (KGT) and open gearing, a single compact lubrication system from our CONCEPT series can supply both the linear guidance systems and the associated drive units with lubricant as needed.

 Approved for all Schaeffler monorail guidance systems 

Arcanol SEMIFLUID has been comprehensively tested and approved for use in all Schaeffler monorail guidance systems. Depending on the specific application, we recommend use with one of our CONCEPT2 to CONCEPT8 lubricators. In this way, you can ensure an optimum lubricant supply. 

Conclusion

The new Arcanol SEMIFLUID is the ideal lubricant for automatically lubricated linear guidance systems. You now have a complete Schaeffler linear guidance solution from a single source.
