Unist & Metal Forming Lubrication : Presented by Barry Lewalski, Key Product Specialist

  • Unist has long been recognized as a market leader in lubrication systems for manufacturing processes. Established in 1957, Unist (then known as Uni-Mist) has decades of experience designing and providing systems for manufacturing operations. The Unist philosophy is that if we reduce fluid consumption at the source, our customers not only save money, but the environment at the same time. This belief is fueled by knowledge that many manufacturers experience excessive fluid related costs including fluid disposal, fluid treating, and increased housekeeping.  Since 1993, Unist has offered precision lubrication application systems for the metal forming industry. Unist SmartFlow® Controller with Uni-Roller® systems feature a patented internally fed roller design and provide an environmentally friendly solution for applying lubricants to coil stock. The Unist product line is built around the concept of applying lubrication in a precise manner resulting in fluid usage reduction, the elimination of unsightly, dangerous fluid mess, and increased efficiency due to an even and consistent application of fluid. The SmartFlow® Controller with Uni-Roller® continues to save manufacturers 50 - 90% on their lubricant costs.
