Industrial Robot Supply Low Speed RV Reducer and harmonic greasing: Why our technique is better! 
One of the very basic service points on a robot is to grease the RV reducers and harmonics. It is alarming how many people do it incorrectly. Poor techniques and improper grease can cause serious damage to your robot and can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. One simple RV reducer can cost more than $6000. Imagine replacing 6 on one robot!
Our purge and grease method is unique. Being that we are an automation company, we built an automated greasing machine. This machine has a specially designed PLC with adjustable timers for pumping speed and flow. We are able to connect to an axis, and slowly purge out the old grease, while slowly filling new grease. Our technicians let the machine do its job while working on other parts of the robot service. When the axis is complete, it is hooked to the next. 

Our technique works because older grease is thinner, and new grease will push the thinner worn grease out of the air vent. Hand-operated pumps, or pneumatic pumps will pump the grease in too fast which causes the new grease to mix with the old or just channel directly through it, and the axis does not get the proper change of grease. We do not rush the process - our machine insures that the new grease is not forced into the cavity inherently causing the worn and new grease to mix. We pump all of the old grease out, and fill the cavity with brand new grease....slowly....and automatically!
