The expensive problem we solve
Billions of devices, some often mission critical, depend on manual greasing by machine operators. This century old manual lubrication process still has not been updated. Operators receive no lubrication feedback and no machine data, causing under- and over-lubrication. This is costing companies millions of dollars a year in downtime and repairs.
Grizit provides a turnkey solution that uses IOT and data analysis to shoot this crucial process to the 21st century. By easily installing intelligent Grizit grease fittings and a Grizit grease pump extension, technicians and plant management get instant feedback from the machine in order to keep it in the best running condition possible.
Why Choose Us
Hyper intelligentmanual greasing
Provide your operators with smart tools to fully support them during lubrication activity and expand their vision with insights in the machine status.
Fastest improvement of your uptime and/or OEE
Harvest the power of unprecedented data to boost your machine availability.
Plug & play+ low to no training
By using innovative IIoT technology, the solution allows an easy and fast installation with minimum training required for use.
The intelligent grease fitting appears like a classic grease fitting but is equipped with electronics to provide a unique ID and a built-in temperature sensor to the fitting.
Any existing grease fitting can easily be replaced by our intelligent grease fitting.
- Super strong- Miniaturized- Zero maintenance (no internal battery)
The intelligent grease head allows real-time communication with the operator. By changing the colors in the transparent head, the operator is guided to perform in the most optimal way. Secondly, all activities are registered including machine data such as pressure and temperature.
Makes the lubrication process smart by detecting and interacting on:- timestamp(s)- smart nipple ID- flow- pressure- temperature- GPS location (outside use)
Plan, organise and stay on top of how and when lubrication activities have been performed. Create predictive insight in equipment status:
Organise and combine lubrication task in the best possible way, by using a graphical plant layout.
- Reporting on the quality of manual lubrication activities. - Reporting on equipment status- Deviation reporting- Create predictive insights based on data gathered from the equipment during greasing- API for software integration
