Rogers Machine provides time proven patented assembly lubricators for production assembly line applications. Our line-side lubricators are designed and built specifically per our customers requirements. We developed this concept six years ago and have produced many of these to satisfy production oiling and lubrication issues since.
How they work: Our lubricators operate by wicking oil from a reservoir and target that lubricant to a particular area on your assembly part. Dispensing the correct amount of oil filming to only the area that requires it. Typically rubber O-rings, seals and metal or plastic parts that mate with rubber or neoprene parts.
There are very few moving components. And some designs have no moving parts.
Hundreds of thousands of cycles in between required maintenance.
We design and build a lubricator that is exclusive to your assembly part. We incorporate a machined guide to accept your part and align it during the lubrication process. Controlling the depth and the amount of oil applied. They work with virtually any type of oil including those of heavier viscosities. They are typically mounted stationary to the floor or line on an adjustable height base however, in some cases certain elements prohibit the part form being relocated to the lubricator. In that circumstance we have and can provide a tethered mobile lightweight hand-held lubricator that operates on the same principle.
An abundant reservoir is incorporated to reduce the re-fill frequency. A normal re-fill cycle is approximately once a week and is very easy to perform. Simply open the filler and pour in lubricant to the full mark on the included sight glass level on the side of the reservoir. Also provided is a protective cover over the lubrication point to be utilized during down times to protect the lubricator from airborne contaminants.
Traditionally, assembly part lubrication is performed with devices that involve an expensive array of pneumatic components. Many moving parts and a complicated assortment of valves, nozzles, adjustments, etc. Ours have very few moving parts if any and require no adjustment beyond the initial build.
Below are just a few pictures of lubricators that we designed and are probably being used even as you are reading this. Not an extensive depiction of the many types we have designed. Some are very much different to these however all work upon the same principle.
