Lubrication technology

Piston lubrication

Machines for casting, printing or cold chamber machines have to be lubricated in order to function at optimum levels. Low levels of wear and tear are thus a prerequisite for durability and high economies of scale.  Our universal multi-pellet dosage systems for piston lubrication granulate (lubricant for pistons in powder or granulate form) are specifically suited for requirements in foundries and other metal processing businesses (e.g. for lubricating the filling chamber and plunger).

Here, the big advantage compared to conventional lubricants is in the high impact method, as the lubricant is blasted directly into the filling chamber and melts there and then.  

Our dosage devices provide exceptionally exact doses and enable the setting of the spray period and air cooling amount as well as being very easy to install and refill. Built-in LED displays allow for the monitoring and control of important parameters. On request, a shuttle system can also be used, by connecting a flexible arm to the basic device. This can be moved automatically to the piston where the spray pipe can be extended from a pneumatic cylinder for up to 320 mm. Other special length pipes are also available if this is not sufficient.

Put your trust in our long term expertise and join many other companies world-wide in making use of piston lubrication devices by MAFA.  In order to witness the quality of our Shuttle dosage device, we offer a test rental to you. Just speak to our customer service team!

Grease nipples

A grease nipple is a small nozzle serving to provide lubricant to a location via a grease gun. Grease nipples are used in mechanical engineering, tool and vehicle construction. They are also often found in construction and agricultural sectors.

MAFA has been a leading provider of grease nipples for many decades.  Our grease nipples are robust, durable (industrial grease nipple: more than 1000 bar) and precise. We can deliver pretty much any grease nipple that can be manufactured. We produce grease nipples based on all international Standards, e.g.  DIN, ISO, SAE, BS, JIS, and more. We produce standard grease nipples made of galvanised steel, but also made of brass, V2A and V4A. The same applies to our special customisations.

You have a large demand for grease nipples? For large order and initial outfitting we can offer customised solutions on excellent terms. We are also happy to provide special types of grease nipples.  

Accessories

Aside from our own grease nipples we also sell other manufacturers´ products. Whether you require cone-shaped, flat, funnel or ball grease nipples you will definitely find the right item in our online shop!  Additionally, you can also find relevant accessories there, such as grease guns, hydraulic couplers and fittings as well as hydraulic hoses.
