CST @ MCM Milano - Congress and Exhibition on Maintenance solutions
Crown Plaza Hotel - San Donato Milanese April 18th 2019.

How to lower the OPEX by means of a modern lubrication system that improves machine availability, saves lubricant and keeps the unit under constant and sharp monitoring? Within the workshop "Predictive analysis & 4.0 monitoring for the component and system integrity", Alessio Butini (CST's Sales and Marketing Manager) presented “Cost reduction by means of smart lubrication” where fluid control and digital monitoring converge in the PLS-100. PLS-100 lowers oil consumption, component wearing, jamming of process streams, adsorbed power, downtime for repairs... A lean & modern approach to an ancient need of any motion part.
