Company Profile

Always 100% water-lubricated

We have always believed that water is the ideal lubricant because of its environmentally sound, non-compressibility, cooling property and unlimited availability at no cost. It forms a perfect (hydrodynamic) lubricating film with the lowest coefficient of friction. Therefore not a drop of oil or grease is used.

Our systems

Efficient 24/7 service

Of course we have necessary spare parts readily available for swift shipment and quick response times. The real difference is that since our systems are easy to maintain and explain, you’ll be able to use local engineers. A clear briefing from us via phone and/or web will save you time and lots of costs.
