Effective Lubrication Makes all the Difference
The availability of the wide belt sanding machine is crucial for the completion of the timber planks in a hardwood sawmill. Repeatedly, though, premature bearing failure occurred at the tension and contact rolls due to lubricant breakdown. An important factor here was the maintenance requirements of the belt sander. For safety reasons, the machine should be lubricated manually at standstill exclusively. Schaeffler recommended changing over from manual to automatic lubrication with FAG CONCEPT8 as well as switching the lubricant to Arcanol MULTITOP.
