This year ExxonMobil's Equipment Builder Group, dedicated to helping optimise the performance of machinery and equipment in the manufacturing industry, is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Group specialises in working alongside leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in more than 150 countries around the world to develop high-performance lubricants which can help manufacturing and engineering companies to improve the safety, environmental awareness and productivity of their operations.
Established in 1914, the Equipment Builder Group has helped OEMs maximise industrial equipment performance and design. Comprised of technical experts and engineers with backgrounds across many disciplines, the Groups is often involved with OEMs from the start of equipment conception through to design and construction. This level of insight, from the ground up, enables the team to develop recommendations on formulating lubricants that help to optimise the performance of equipment.
These relationships have enabled ExxonMobil to push the boundaries in regards to lubrication formulation and performance. For example, next generation products such as Mobil SHC Gear oil have the potential to help industrial organisations secure tangible benefits such as outstanding protection of gears and bearings as well as extended oil life even under extreme conditions. The new gearbox oil range can also offer the potential to improve the energy efficiency of industrial equipment, with some tests recording energy savings up to 3.6 percent.
"For 100 years, ExxonMobil's Equipment Builder Group has been helping leading industrial OEMs develop new equipment which can help to improve their customer's operations. Today the Group continues to dedicate significant resources to build innovation-led relationships with equipment builders worldwide and develop lubricants which will help industrial organisations optimise the performance of their operations today and into the future." said Rainer Lange, Mobil SHC Brand Advisor - Europe, Africa & Middle East, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants.
