About Bielomatik Schmiertechnik GmbH
Bielomatik Schmiertechnik was spun off in April 2020 thanks to the acquisition of the lubrication division of bielomatik Leuze GmbH + Co. KG, a renowned manufacturer and supplier of lubrication systems for machine builders since 1946. It grew to become an important player in centralized lubrication systems for machines for paper and wood processing, as well as the textile industry.
In the late 1990s, the first minimal lubrication systems for metal cutting (MQL) were successfully introduced to the market.
Bielomatik was the first manufacturer to offer 1- &2-channel MQL systems for lubricant supply to the cutting tool through the spindle. Such systems are used particularly in series engine production in the automotive industry.
MQL lubrication has proven to be an economical manufacturing technology which saves resources. Through the continuous development of technology, in collaboration with various universities and tool manufacturers, this new technology, based on the MQL system has been applied to increasingly complex processes and increasingly smaller tool sizes.
Bielomatik Schmiertechnik GmbH, thanks to the important experience consolidated over time with 1- & 2 - channels MQL systems is able to equip different production processes taking into account each specific application.
