Linear guides are machine elements that enable the movement of machines or components in linear direction.
They are available in the form of roller bearing guides (e.g. linear ball bearings, linear roller bearings or profile rails) or as sliding guides (e.g. dovetail guides or linear sliding guides). Linear guide drives are mainly screw drives, lifting gears or a combination of both.
On account of the special design and varied use of linear guide systems, lubrication points in these systems present a challenge for efficient and preventive maintenance. Lubrication points can often only be accessed with assistive equipment. The consequences are neglected or insufficient lubrication of the components.
Many lubrication points must be lubricated exactly according to manufacturer specifications while the equipment is in operation. Different lubrication points require different lubricant amounts. Improper lubrication can cause equipment component failures and reduces productivity and cost effectiveness.
Prevent equipment downtimes through relubrication
Workplace safety must be ensured
Recirculating ball / Roller guides: Even lubricant distribution within a runner block requires an increased lubricant volume flow
The drive (spindle or gear rack) often requires more lubricant than the runner blocks
Lubrication points are located on the runner block and, if required, on the drive (spindle and / or gear rack).
A continuous supply of components with fresh lubricant is a basic requirement for achieving the projected service life.
Mount a perma lubrication system at the lubrication point. Depending on the conditions prevailing at the lubrication point, the perma lubrication system can either be mounted directly or remotely.
- Different discharge amount can be set for each outlet
- Number of activated outlets can be selected freely: 1–6
- Flexible setting of time between discharges: Setting of pauses in days (24 h) possible

Advantages of automatic lubrication
Variable lubricant amount
The lubricant amount can be set differently for each one of the 6 outlets according to manufacturer specifications
Long LC exchange intervals significantly reduce maintenance requirements compared to manual lubrication
perma lubrication systems can be installed outside dangerous areas and actively reduce the risk of accidents
The precise lubricant discharge prevents over-lubrication and protects the environment
