Expansive catalogue with over 35,000 products helps tackle operational downtime
Tom Parker Ltd is widely regarded as the leading independent fluid power distribution company in the UK, specialising in pneumatics, hydraulics, industrial and process engineering products.
The company has an expansive catalogue with over 35,000 products, which includes many global market-leading and exclusive brands. The catalogue is biennial, with the 50th anniversary edition due out in January and every two years the team endeavour to ensure they are providing a comprehensive, carefully selected, but complete range.
Engineered solutions for manufacturing industries
One of the many brands Tom Parker Ltd is proud to be distributors for is Lubetec UK. It began operating in 2004, but has rapidly built a name for itself in machinery lubrication, providing engineered solutions to a wide range of manufacturing industries.
Much like many of the long-serving employees at Tom Parker Ltd, Lubetec’s internal and external technical team have been with them from the start and spent a large proportion of their careers working directly upon machines in the industry. That has given them invaluable first-hand knowledge of how centralised lubrication systems function in the field; helping them to quickly master the art of identifying current and potential issues and devising the most efficient solution, as quickly as possible.
Vital component in machinery
The use of robust, quality lubrication fittings is a vital component in machinery, as it greatly reduces friction and wear; helping to cut running costs and loss of production, due to operational downtime. The Tom Parker Ltd catalogue includes a range of lubrication fittings from Lubetec UK, carefully selected to meet the manufacturing requirements of today’s industries.
The range includes lubrication compression fittings, push-in lubrication fittings, lubrication adaptors, and high-pressure hose and fittings; all of which are designed specifically and are suitable for use with oil and grease applications.
Maintenance engineers will be acutely aware of the following when involved in any assessment they might have to undertake:
Centralised lubrication systems are not only an economical solution, but the most effective when machinery downtime is so critical. “Lubetec’s product range has quickly expanded to be one of the most complete selection of parts and fittings that are specifically for all types of lubrication systems coupled with excellent advice and service support,” says Tom Parker Ltd.
“They maintain their reputation and leading place in the centralised lubrication and fluid handling market by sticking to their simple goal, which is to eliminate machinery costs and downtime through a well-designed, well-executed lubrication programme – which they can most certainly deliver alongside key partners whom they work alongside to provide the latest innovations.”
Cost, benefit and solution service
“Operating a cost, benefit and solution service enables them to physically show the most cost-effective way to lubricate and maintain machinery and avoid problems in the future, due to insufficient and excessive lubrication, helping to save money, increase machinery life, and increase productivity and revenue.”
Tom Parker Ltd’s distribution network consists of resale, OEM and end users, and they have “an expert technical team on hand to help source the right solution for the most challenging of applications”. They work with customers to design and devise a step-by-step plan to create a full turnkey solution, using their key industry knowledge to help source solutions quickly and cost-effectively.
