Industrial Innovations, Wyoming, Mich., has completed the installation of a lubrication management system at North American Stamping Group’s newly expanded stamping facility in Portland, Tenn.
The system comprises a Pro-Mix V unit, which mixes and distributes lubricants required for high-strength steel and advanced materials, and a Spra-Rite injector system and Zero-drip Z-nozzles for lubricant application.
The system can mix two different ratios simultaneously to dispense lubricant throughout the plant, and lubricant volume can be regulated in terms of volume and placement at specific areas of stamping or drawing tools, or the stock, at predetermined press stroke intervals. Each injector can be programmed independently.
