CHALLENGES IN THE FIELD OF ACTIVITY. WHAT SOLUTIONS DOES MEMOLUB OFFER?
Memolub offers a wide range of quality class single-point automatic lubrication & multi-point automatic lubrication systems to help extend equipment life, increase productivity, and provide a safer work environment. The patented electro-mechanical pump design has provided outstanding protection for lubricated equipment across various industrial applications.
Easy Engineering: Which are the fields of activity where you are operating?
MEMOLUB: We focus primarily on industries as mining & energy, but we also operate in automotive, steel aeronautic, chemical/plastic, food & pharmaceutical.
E.E: Which are the most significant projects from 2021?
MEMOLUB: Our most significant project, in 2021, was the opening of our subsidiary in Chile, with of objective of having superiority in the mining industry.
But 2021 was very positive for us, especially for our customers involved in the gloves industry. With Covid-19, they were facing essential needs (significant increasing their production) due to the request of this product. In general, companies had to produce more without breaks, leading to the “lubrication automation” project being the main priority.
E.E: What projects were the most challenging?
MEMOLUB: The most challenging projects are the ones that require physic presence for multiple reasons, which can be from analyzing technical applications to implementing solutions at the customer site. With Covid-19, this all changed. Unfortunately, accessing these sites is not easy, so everything has to be done remotely, which isn’t always easy, and this was/is our biggest challenge in 2021!
E.E: What are the usual challenges you encounter?
MEMOLUB: Usual is linked with: if it works, why should I change!
Manual lubrication is still the primary method in the field. However, educating people about all benefits regarding lubrication automation takes time, even if the benefits are well established.
Another challenge is people believing that their jobs will disappear due to lubrication automation. Not valid!
The point of lubrication automation is to make their jobs easier, faster, well organized, and most important, safer. We make it very clear that their jobs are crucial because they will have to supervise Memolub systems (if they are working 100%) and change the refills once they are empty.
E.E: How did you overcome the challenges?
MEMOLUB: At the start, it isn’t always easy, but we start by educating them.
This involves presenting facts about the benefits of lubrication automatization, such as the fact that they will be 100% safe if intervention is needed from their side. This is something that we guaranty once they switch into Memolub systems. Once they realize all the benefits of Memolub systems, then it becomes no more a challenge.
E.E: What products / solutions were used in the projects?
MEMOLUB: We do have products for all “lubrication challenges”. Therefore, we can’t focus on one product because we all encountered challenges that needed a different approach. We like to take each challenge as a unique assignment.
However, our main product is still the Memolub HPS – 25 bar pressure single/multi point.
E.E: Why did the clients choose your products / solutions?
MEMOLUB: There are different reasons, but mainly, because of the patent technology that guarantees the reliability of our products, despite the backpressure produced. The best example is the mining industry, and even in the most challenging sector in the world, our products perform 100%.
Besides, we also guarantee 100% safety if someone has to verify the Memolub system.
E.E: How were these products/solutions used to optimize the client’s business?
MEMOLUB: In a nutshell, by saving money, saving time and being all the time safe.
By saving money, an application that is affected by weather due to wrong lubrication, applications that need very frequently lubrication operations or that take time, because it requires specific requirements (like disassembly protection, point in the heights, stop machine or production line).
By saving time, fewer people are working in factories. Because of our technology and expertise, we help industries optimize lubrication processes and save time for other tasks due to less workforce on the floor.
And all this, being safe all the time.
E.E: What innovative features do the products / solutions have?
MEMOLUB: Our technology of pumping/expelling grease is unique. All lubrication applications, automatic or manually, generate a back pressure that we have to fight. This back pressure (force) depends on several factors: tube diameter/length, the type of lubricant, distributor block, and temperature changes are all significant contributors.
On our market of electro-mechanical automatic solutions, the backpressure directly affects the lifetime of motors and so solutions developed by the competition but not ours.
It means that our mechanism will generate the exact specification (consumption, effort) at each expulsion of lubricant, independently of backpressure or temperature. Furthermore, it makes our mechanism 100% stable. This is why Memolub reliability is known worldwide, even in the harshest conditions.
Moreover, Memolub’s technology almost eliminates bleeding. It is a bit technical, but excessive pressure applied to the lubricating grease causes oil and thickener separation. For perfect working, grease can’t have constant pressure.
Our unique method of process eliminates this problem. Memolub allows the lubricant remains in its premium condition thanks to its patented design, offering substantially improved lubrication of your valuable asset.
This is one of many reasons why we have the most unique solution on the market. To find all of them, check our website.
E.E: What are your forecasts for 2022?
MEMOLUB: We aim high for 2022. we will launch 2 new products and an app (still in development). One will be launched at the beginning of 2022, and it will be our Memolub Visio (more info at www.memolub.be) , and the other + the app, will be in the middle of 2022.
We can add that the product, plan to launch in the middle of 2022, will revolutionize the world of lubrication!
