Why “Be A LUBExpert”?

Grease guns don’t kill bearings… people kill bearings. A lube-technician without knowledge and experience can inflict terrible, irreversible carnage on a machine with just one pull of the grease gun trigger. And like a tube of toothpaste, once squeezed there’s no pushing it back inside.

People become trained LUBExperts because they are passionate about doing things the right way. It’s a constant pursuit of elusive perfection. The path to precision bearing lubrication is not always clear but a LUBExpert anticipates barriers, navigates them, and refuses to settle for shortcuts.

Traits of a LUBExpert

  • Understands the differences between time-based and condition-driven grease regimes.
  • Views machinery lubrication as a precise science.
  • Documents every action with justification why.
  • Instills discipline and control in every element of their work.
  • Has successfully completed LUBExpert Essentials Part 1 and 2.
  • Identifies challenges and faces them head-on rather than avoiding them.
  • Knows that nothing works without a strategy, driven by data.
