WE ALSO KNOW THAT THE MECHANICAL WEAR OF ITS COMPONENTS CAN COMPROMISE PERFORMANCE.
That is why we support you in all phases of realisation, just as if it were our own project, with the aim of finding the right lubricant for your needs!
We got our start as a consultancy company specialising in supporting designers and technical departments during the realisation of their industrial projects. Our task was to connect small- and medium-sized companies with external resources to shape ideas, prototypes, components, machinery and products.
Over time, we began to notice that one of the most underestimated variables in the project development phase was precisely the choice of functional lubricant for the mechanical or electromechanical components. The lack of specific knowledge or a dedicated technical department led customer companies to underestimate the choice of oils and greases. There were those who made do with standardised commercial products and those who did not carry out the necessary tests on the lubricants used.
The result, in both cases, was the creation of products that:
This was the turning point and also our greatest opportunity – to go from simple consultancy to the realisation of customised lubricant solutions that could truly enhance our customers' projects! Thus, we abandoned commercial catalogues and standardised products in order to work on and support each project as if it were our own, so we can be 100 per cent certain that we are offering the best possible lubrication. All this is enhanced by the decision to constantly invest in Research & Development activities and equipment.

Thus, we abandoned commercial catalogues and standardised products in order to work on and support each project as if it were our own, so we can be 100 per cent certain that we are offering the best possible lubrication.
We start by analysing the component to be lubricated. We evaluate the materials, the gases within, the operating temperature, the coefficient of friction, the type of load it is subjected to and the sliding speed. In this way, we are able to identify the purpose of your lubricant.
To find the ideal lubricant, we start by formulating an initial composition. Thanks to the SpeedMixer, we are able to produce a prototype in small batches within 3 weeks – just enough to test the effectiveness of the lubricant sample.
Once we have found the perfect formulation for your needs, we can exactly replicate and reproduce it in larger batches (40 kilograms or more). A perfectly scalable system, with even higher accuracy than could be achieved with a paint colour meter.
To date, we have supported over 1,000 companies in the creation of their projects with tailor-made lubricant solutions that have enabled them to achieve maximum performance whilst also optimising design and implementation costs.
“It is easy to find lubricating oils and greases on the market through a search online but it is more difficult to find specific solutions for our application needs. We have reduced mechanical wear by 30 per cent and doubled the number of effective manoeuvres with just one grease change.”
“Modern, responsive and pleasant in maintaining contact with the customer. As well as offering us alternatives to the previous products in use, they helped us find the right product for an application that was completely new for us.”
Head of Research and Development and Internal Maintenance -
“I appreciated the willingness, the questioning, the not giving up despite initial failures. It took time but in the end, we managed to find the right product for us.”

“È facile trovare grassi o oli lubrificanti sul mercato, attraverso una ricerca sul web, più difficile invece reperire soluzioni specifiche per le nostre esigenze applicative. Abbiamo ridotto del 30% l’usura meccanica e raddoppiato il numero di manovre efficaci con la sola sostituzione del grasso lubrificante”.
Progettista Elettromeccanico Lovato Electric
“Moderni, reattivi e gradevoli nel mantenere i contatti con il cliente. Oltre che al proporci prodotti alternativi ai precedenti in utilizzo, ci hanno aiutato ad individuare il giusto prodotto per una applicazione completamente nuova per noi”.
Responsabile area ricerca e sviluppo e manutenzioni interne -
“Ho apprezzato la disponibilità, il mettersi in discussione, il non arrendersi nonostante i primi fallimenti. Ci è voluto tempo ma alla fine siamo riusciti a trovare il giusto prodotto che fa al caso nostro”.
