The manufacturing industry is constantly in demand for greater efficiencies and higher outputs.  A common issue faced in the paper and board industry is the failure of printing machines. These machines, often working around the clock, need reliable power transmission to keep the application at its peak performance. Gears and bearings involved in the construct of a printing machine need proper lubrication to reduce friction and wear associated with the consistent use of these machines. 

With more than 100 years of experience in the lubrication industry, ITW Polymers & Fluids can provide specialised lubricants under the Rocol and Molybond brand names. No matter what application, ITW’s range of superior lubrication products, can reduce maintenance and replacement costs as a result of mechanical downtime in paper and board mills.
