Machine Tool Spindle Bearing Grease improves tool performance.

Promoting operation at higher speeds and load conditions, RACEGRD™ improves operation reliability for bearings in machine tool main spindles. This grease also delivers anti-seizure performance and makes it possible to switch to grease lubrication in automobile component machining tools. Furthermore, suppression of grease leakage from bearings reduces temperature fluctuations during operation.
