Stamping & Metal Forming Lubrication

Slippery floors, a messy press, and stamped parts swimming in oil are just some of the headaches that Uni-Roller systems from Unist can eliminate.

The Internally-fed difference

All Uni-Roller systems feature a unique, internally-fed roller design. This is the key to uniform and efficient fluid application. As illustrated, inside each of the rollers there is a dispenser tube with several small holes spaced along its length. Every time the fluid is injected into the dispenser tubes from the fluid controller, it is dispensed evenly across the inside of the roller through these holes.

The lubricant is then transferred to the stock through a durable polyester felt or polyurethane foam roller cover. These cover materials apply the lubricant smoothly and evenly across both the top and bottom of the stock. As the system continues to cycle, additional lubricant is injected into the rollers to replenish the lubricant applied to the stock. The advantage of this system is consistent application of the exact amount of lubricant required for any particular operation.

Don't take our word for it.

Consistent lubrication means increased efficiency.

When lubrication is applied smoothly and consistently with a Unist stock lubrication system, messy conditions from excess fluid are eliminated, scrap is reduced, and time between die sharpenings is increased. This application of metal forming lubricant not only increases efficiency, but can also result in significant fluid reduction and cost savings.
