Switzerland-based Oerlikon Textile Components has added the Texparts® SLA Manual Spindle
Lubricating Apparatus to its product range. The apparatus has a manual oil pump that is based on
the Texparts SLA Electrical Spindle Lubricating Apparatus, but does not require a power connection.
According to Oerlikon, the manual apparatus guarantees the correct oil level, avoiding excessive
lubrication. It may be used for both first lubrication and relubrication. Lubricating time is 10
seconds per spindle including replacement of waste oil. Adapters are available for main ring
spinning machine types and spindles, and may be used for either electrical or manual apparatuses.
