    Sensors make lubrication systems fit for industry 4.0

    MWM has developed sensors that focus on lubricant control. Whether oil mist or spray injection - safe lubrication reduces maintenance costs and downtime.

    MWM systems with sensor monitoring provide solutions for the lubrication of mechanical components for a wide range of requirements.

    In the context of Industry 4.0, the role of sensors is a very important issue, as MWM points out. With extensive experience, and in a constant program of research, the company has developed electronic sensors to detect the lubricant flow rate, for instance oil-air, oil mist, spray, injection or liquid oil lubrication, in the automatic lubrication systems. The advantages of the sensors are seen in a 100 percent safe lubrication and a reduction of machine downtime and maintenance. The instruments provide automation and connectivity for process management, set need-based lubrication, and value-added machine retrofitting. The range includes the IFX-C optical sensor for oil streak detection in air-oil systems, the optical IFX-S inject-spray sensor for spray lubrication, the IFL-O laser flow rate sensor to measure minimal oil flow rate, the IFX-F optical sensor for oil flow rate measurement in oil mist, and the IFX-SC optical sensor to monitor the rotary joints fluid leakage. The sensor monitoring systems on show from the exhibitors are said to offer solutions for a wide range of mechanical components lubrication needs with an Industry 4.0 approach.
