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.

    Over or under lubrication
    Machine downtime
    Expensive repairs
    Under-performance (OEE potential)

"Return on Uptime" (RoU) thanks to Grizit

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.

Operators become “machinery doctors” with the right tools to help maintain your machinery in the healthiest condition possible. OPEX, CAPEX and insurance costs will drop significantly! Operators and technicians will grow their confidence with more insights.
Let your equipment guide you, instead of you working on expensive repairs of your mission critical machinery.

Description

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.

Electronics

- Super strong- Miniaturized- Zero maintenance (no internal battery)


Heading photo

Description

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. 

Electronics

Makes the lubrication process smart by detecting and interacting on:- timestamp(s)- smart nipple ID- flow- pressure- temperature- GPS location (outside use)

About us

Grizit is an imec.istart company that offers an innovative solution in the field of maintenance 4.0. With Grizit, any type of manual lubrication activity can be improved and managed by reporting data from the equipment to management via IIoT. This avoids mechanical problems and (unexpected) downtime.
The idea arose from knowledge of the needs and priorities of the industry, built up through the years of practical experience of David Duerinckx and Rohalt Degeest, the two founders of Grizit.

Rohalt Degeest FounderCEO

Rohalt Degeest has 16 years of B2B experience in industrial digitization and engineering. Over the past 6 years, he has built a Belgian office for a Dutch engineering company. Previously, he was actively involved in the internationalization of a Belgian SME for their MES and MOM software platform and helped build the Belgian entity for a Dutch distributor of GE Fanuc Industrial Software Solutions.Based on his experience with software and digital applications, Rohalt supplied Grizit with the input to develop a hands-on, performant solution fully tailored to the needs of the maintenance industry.

David DuerinckxFounderLead Designer

David Duerinckx has 30 years of experience in maintenance. When David was responsible for process reliability and maintenance, he noted that there was often a low level of commitment to the performance of lubrication tasks. Manual lubrication provides no insights into the status of the equipment nor the quality of lubrication. David identified the need to monitor manual lubrication tasks which would promote operator involvement.Over the years, David has also built up strong mechanical expertise that is used for production optimization. In recent years he has focused more on inventing, developing and implementing tailor-made equipment.
