Automatic lubrication of cranes

A crane and its components are exposed to all weather conditions and many dirt emissions. The components of a crane must therefore be supplied with sufficient lubricant at all times. The simalube automatic lubricant dispenser ensures a permanent supply of grease or oil to the bearings over periods of one to 12 months and thus offers the perfect solution for the automatic lubrication of rolling bearings. Such precise and continuous lubrication as with the simalube lubricant dispenser is not even possible manually. The automatic lubrication of bearings, the continuous, reliable supply of lubricant to the lubrication points, guarantee reliable operation of the equipment even under adverse environmental conditions.

Lubrication points
The roller bearing of a slewing ring on a construction crane is automatically and continuously lubricated with the simalube lubricators.
The simalube lubricator automatically and continuously lubricates the slewing ring bearing of a crane over a period of 1-12 months.
The two simalube lubricators 1250ml automatically and continuously lubricate the roller bearing of a construction crane slewing ring.


  • Outdoor applications
  • Temperature fluctuations


  • simalube, well protected, mounted directly on the lubrication points
  • simalube with flat brushes
  • IMPULSE connect: Digital monitoring and configuration of the lubrication points via Bluetooth®. The lubrication points can be monitored from a distance of 20 m. The device can be used to increase the pressure up to 10 bar.
