TSL System

Lubrication for ultra-thin stock


  • The Unist TSL system provides smooth and consistent lubrication to the coil, which helps protect tooling and reduces excess waste. The system features controlled lubricant delivery to both sides of thin stock using specialized felt application pads. The TSL is capable of applying lubricant coatings as low as 25 mg/ft² (269 mg/m²), and is an ideal solution for applications where proper lubrication is critical. The Unist TSL is commonly used for fin stock and thin coils used in the container and packaging industry.

    • Lubricates stock from .002" to .010" (.05mm - .25mm) thick
    • Protects expensive tooling
    • Lubricates both sides of stock
    • Reduces fluid usage
  • TSL with SPR-2000

SPR-2000™ & The TSL™ System

The patented SPR-2000™ programmable fluid controller is the key component for reliably and accurately controlling the application of lubricants. Precise control of your fluid application saves you money through reduced fluid usage and improves efficiency by ensuring the entire coil is properly lubricated.

The SPR-2000™ alerts you to issues before they become expensive problems that interrupt or stop your production lines. With the SPR-2000™ you’ll know immediately if the fluid supply runs low, if fluid pressure varies, or if flow to the applicator is interrupted (Level, pressure, and flow sensors required). The SPR-2000™ features an intuitive, easy-to-use interface as well as an access code to prevent unauthorized tampering or changes in fluid settings.
