- CONCEPT1 single-point automatic lubricator now available in North America

Global industrial and automotive supplier Schaeffler is launching its innovative CONCEPT1 single-point automatic lubricator to the North American market.
Engineered to ensure optimal lubrication in a broad range of industrial machines and devices – including electric motors, bearing housings, fans, blowers and pumps – CONCEPT1 from Schaeffler eliminates the need for time-consuming manual lubrication procedures, while preventing lubrication mistakes such as over- or under-greasing that can cause unplanned plant equipment downtime.
“Approximately 60% of electric motor failures can be traced to bearing-related problems that are typically due to lubrication issues,” says David French, product manager for Industry 4.0 solutions at Schaeffler. “Accordingly, we designed CONCEPT1 to provide our customers with a versatile and easy-to-use solution that delivers the right grease in the right quantity at just the right intervals.”
Schaeffler’s CONCEPT1 single-point lubricator uses an electrochemical reaction to precisely and continuously supply the proper amount of lubricant to rolling bearings inside electric motors and other industrial machinery. Easy to install and operate, CONCEPT1 can reduce plant maintenance costs by as much as 25% when compared to manual lubrication procedures.
CONCEPT1 is available pre-filled with Schaeffler’s industry-leading line of Arcanol greases, or customers can have CONCEPT1 filled at the factory with an extensive selection of name-brand and special-order lubricants. Alternatively, customers can purchase empty lubricant cartridges for CONCEPT1 and use their own grease. To reduce waste and help protect the environment, CONCEPT1 can be refilled up to three times using Schaeffler’s specially designed refill kits.
