Towards smart, smooth and successful machine operations

How choosing the right lubricant is essential to improve industrial machinery reliability and productivity and reduce breakdowns?
The manufacturing sector in India is diverse, as are its equipment and their maintenance needs. Here, to ensure long-term productivity and reliability while preventing machine breakdowns, lubricants play a pivotal role. Further, lubricant usage is linked closely to factors like environmental conditions, speed, load and temperature – adopting correct practices, thus, is imperative. Following these challenges, efficient continuity in machine performance is essential. Over the years, Mobil™ Lubricants has been developing proven solutions and application expertise that have assisted manufacturers in implementing practices that enhance operations, improve safety, minimise environmental impact and streamline maintenance.

What are the latest trends in the industry and what is your company focusing on?
Manufacturers are actively seeking lubricants that guarantee efficiency, and assure quality and applicability in a diverse range of conditions. Our products too are being delivered mindful of these changing priorities. For instance, the Mobil DTE™ 20 Ultra Series oils are high-performance anti-wear hydraulic oils with extended oil life capabilities and have demonstrated up to 2 times* longer oil drain intervals versus similar competitive oils. They meet the stringent requirements of hydraulic systems using high pressure, high output pumps as well as other hydraulic system components such as close clearance servo-valves and numerically controlled (NC) machine tools. Additionally, the Mobilcut™ Series products are providing dependable performance in a wide array of metal removal processes. Further, the Mobil Vactra™ Oil Numbered Series premium-quality slide way oils have been designed for all modern machine tools, providing outstanding frictional control and accuracy for horizontal and vertical ways. It offers a low kinetic friction coefficient for easy start-up and outstanding lubrication properties that guarantee accurate and precise machining.

How can premium lubricants lower industrial equipment costs and improve performance?
With more focus on durability, fuel efficiency and dual function, the quality of lubricants matter the most when it comes to ensuring seamless and unhindered equipment performance. Lubricants should be regarded as an integral part of the component of machines to lower unwanted maintenance costs and significantly improve performance. Premium lubricants are manufactured to be much more robust and able to hold their characteristics under extreme conditions – maintaining engine health for a longer period. With increased oil drain interval, better performance of machines can be achieved with fewer gallons of fuel burned each day. Most premium lubricants are designed exclusively for a specific type of equipment to last longer and yield improved productivity. Premium lubricants are designed to optimise friction and help reduce fuel consumption. Even a small improvement in each system will make a huge difference in overall machine efficiency and opting for a premium lubricant can add to overall profitability.

What are the key features of your service solutions that make them smarter?
We have been closely studying and catering to industry trends in opting for smarter monitoring solutions and choosing efficiency through thorough oil monitoring and analysis. In the past year, our remote services under Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) have assisted business evolve their core practices for better efficiency and productivity. Additionally, the Mobil Solcare™ Service app is empowering manufacturing businesses to reach their targets for maximum productivity and profitability.Now, with the move towards Industry 4.0, we have also introduced Mobil ServSM IIoT Insights. It is a critical cloud-based solution that turns insights into action, taking businesses towards improved efficiency and overall productivity. Overall, we are introducing a number of service applications that help manufacturers become smarter, more efficient and therefore, productive and profitable.
