Solid Lubrication
Technology

Koyo solid lubrication is an alternative lubricant for bearings.

Koyo solid lubrication is an alternative lubricant for bearings.

It was develop by Koyo for applications where oil or grease does not provide the best lubricant solution.

The solid lube is inserted into the bearing in an injection molding machine. The compound of polyethylene, synthetic oil (~70%) and additives, provides a long lasting (forced) lubrication.

This lubrication technology is specifically interesting for severe operating conditions like oscillating movements, or moderate speed/high load applications.

This type of lubrication is not suitable for applications where operating temperatures of more than 85 degrees are reached.

Solid lube is currently offered for application in Needle -and Cylindrical roller bearings for which a sufficient volume is needed to justify the (small) investment for the unique injection mold, which is required for each bearing type & size.

FAQ

What is a needle roller bearing?

A needle roller bearing is a very compact bearing which uses cylindrical rollers. They are an economical alternative for applications requiring minimal space to carry a given load at a desired speed. They can be an ideal choice because of their ability to handle a given level of speed and load capacity, yet have the smallest cross section of all roller bearing types.
