Graco’s Lubrication Systems Increase Production, Longevity, and
Operator Safety for Komatsu Equipment Owners
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 2015--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG) announced today that its automatic lubrication
system is now available as a factory option on a variety of Komatsu®
America’s earth moving equipment. The automatic lubrication system
features a G3 electric grease pump, MSP divider valves, and a GLC-2200
controller. The system is also available as an after-market field
install kit. The kit includes all the core components along with the
required hoses, fittings, mounting hardware, and protective guarding
required for installation.
“Komatsu America is one of the most recognized brands in the industry
and we are very proud that customers can now order Graco’s automatic
lubrication system as a factory option,” said Gabe Elmhorst, Global OEM
Account Manager, Graco Industrial Lubrication Equipment. “Graco’s
automatic lubrication system was specifically designed for Komatsu’s
wide range of equipment to reduce maintenance needs, extend the life of
the machine by automatically applying the right amount of lubrication to
reduce wear and tear, and reduce planned maintenance down time.”
In addition to extending the operational life of a machine, Graco’s
automatic lubrication system reduces the amount of climbing an operator
needs to do to access grease points.
“The field-installed after market kit offers all of the benefits of a
factory-installed system and can be purchased for equipment already in
operation,” continued Elmhorst. So whether you are considering a new
machine, or simply want to extend the life of a machine already in
service, Graco and Komatsu have you covered.”
