Jost turntables now standard with LubeTronic

Leading turntable manufacturer Jost is now fitting its automatic mini lubrication system known as LubeTronic to all low-maintenance turntables in its JSK 37CW and JSK 42W ranges.

Jost turntables in these series have top plate liners which allow greaseless operation of the coupling plate, in addition to a plastic seal and maintenance-free joints or sliding bearings. Therefore, the addition of LubeTronic – which automatically greases the lock jaw – essentially makes these turntables maintenance free.

The LubeTronic unit is mounted unobtrusively to the underside of the top plate and incorporates an integral supply of lubricant and an electronic control unit powered by a built-in battery, meaning no external power source is required.

According to Jost, the unit autonomously and reliably maintains precise lock jaw lubrication for at least three years or 300,000 km, and is authorised for use with dangerous goods vehicles.
