Interactive lubrication maintenance programme

06 July 2018

FUCHS Lubricants has introduced an interactive maintenance programme to help provide support on asset care maintenance. 

FLUIDS LIVE is designed to support Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) initiatives, in particular where autonomous maintenance is practiced by machine operators. The web-based recording, tracking and reporting tool includes integrated KPI measurements and is designed to provide instant access to key data, enabling faster and more informed decision making to help maximise reliability through an effective lubrication strategy.

For an average production facility, lubricant purchases normally amount to only 3% of a maintenance budget, but lubrication related activities can influence an estimated 40% of total maintenance costs.

Information is obtained from measurements such as oil sampling and vibration monitoring to help maximise asset care. The solution designed to cater for increasing skill shortages taking away any guesswork.?
