Lubricating chains with
oil (automobile factories, etc.)
This manufacturer was having workers use spray
guns to manually spray conveyance chains for manufacturing lines
with oil for lubrication. Automating this process and preventing
products from being sprayed with oil in kind had been issues for
ST-6PR (φ0.5; air cap: φ2.0)
automatic spray gun was used to lubricate the conveyance chain
with oil without forming mist.
Usually, linear spraying of oil from a straight
horizontal position had resulted in decreased axial trace, when
done from a distance. The ultra-weak airflow blown from the ST-6PR
effectively enabled oil to be applied to the necessary parts only,
with no scattering.
This, in turn, eliminated trouble with the conveyance
chain caused by running out of oil.
