Wood processing

Wood processing is an industry with large, maintenance-intensive machines. There can be long distances between the machine's lubrication points, which makes Groeneveld-BEKA's automated lubrication essential. In this industry, bearing failures are also particularly costly and associated with machine downtimes.

Automatic lubrication sytems

In the wood processing industry, the most important thing is to avoid costly downtime for large and complex stationary machines. Our central lubrication systems are tailored to the requirements thanks to many years of experience in Saw Mills and Log Yards. External influences such as dust, dirt and weather are important factors in the design of the central lubrication system, e.g. chain drives, saws, conveyor belts, bearings are taken into account. Groeneveld-BEKA automatic lubrication systems offer a number of important benefits:

Improved productivity, resistant against dust, dirt and environmental influences.
Grease spreads better across the surface because lubrication takes place while the parts are in operation.
User-friendly and tailored to the wood processing application.

    • Up to three independently operating lubrication circuits.
    • Grease delivers consistently, regardless of ambient temperature.
    • Optimal grease dosage per lubrication point.
  • What is lubrication?

    The application of a film of grease between moving parts in a machine or vehicle. The film of grease prevents any metallic contact between moving parts, like pins and bushings, bearings and steering knuckles. It also stops dirt, water and dust entering the lubrication point and prevents corrosion. Inadequate lubrication causes wear and tear, machine and vehicle failure and increases costs.

  • What is grease?

    Grease is a thickened oil and always consists of two different components: oil and a thickener. The oil is the actual lubricant, while the thickener ensures that the oil remains in place.

  • What does automatic lubrication involve?

    Automatic lubrication involves pumping the grease from the reservoir of the lubrication system to the lubrication points. The quantity of grease per lubrication point and the interval can both be set in advance.

  • Which types of automatic lubrication systems are there?

    Progressive systems. All lubrication points are consecutively lubricated with the predetermined amount of grease. Parallel systems. All lubrication points are administered the predetermined amount of grease at the same time.

  • For which situations is an automatic lubrication system suitable?

    For all situations in which moving parts need to be separated from each other by means of a film of grease. Groeneveld lubrication systems are most frequently used for wheel loaders, excavators, trucks, trailers, buses, port equipment, mining machines, forestry equipment and agricultural equipment.
