Supply chain management
FUCHS Service supports all processes in the plant in which lubricants play a role. At the beginning, there are procurement, storage and logistics processes.
More than 20 years of experience in taking responsibility for purchasing and warehousing activities have led to an optimised and secure supply chain management.
As a general supplier, FUCHS Service takes responsibility for the procurement of all lubricants. Qualified employees in the team of FUCHS LUBRICANTS GERMANY handle all tasks. A central contact coordinates all issues relating to the supply of lubricants.
► Savings in effort and costs
► Savings through possible sort rationalisation
FUCHS Service relieves the plant logistics and takes over the workload for the lubricant warehouse. In combination with the general supplier module, the right lubricant is always on site and can be supplied for use. Billing is simple and clear in just one monthly invoice. As an option, the stock can be taken over completely and the warehouse can be managed as a consignment warehouse - for all lubricants.
► Process improvements through bundling of responsibilities
► Savings in costs and effort
► Fewer processes, thus saving resources
► Only one contact person, thus process optimization
► inimisation of holding costs
Lubricant management systems from FUCHS Service combine the entire range of experience of the lubricant specialist FUCHS with service expertise from more than 20 years of carrying out FUCHS fluid management projects on site, at the customer. The resulting technically qualified service is oriented towards a long-term, sustainable development of the lubrication and all subsequent processes on site.
A qualified FUCHS Service team takes care of all lubricant-related issues at your site. The basis is an optimised lubrication service concept that is drawn up at the start of the project and is constantly reviewed and further developed. The solutions of the FUCHS service range are selected appropriately. The concept focuses 100% on the lubricant and the resulting requirements and optimisations. The outcome is a reliable, sustainable service that leaves no questions unanswered.
Central systems can sometimes supply entire production lines. Operator models place high demands on the companies carrying out the work. Thus, different subject areas have to be covered. From lubricant expertise to qualifications in the areas of maintenance and electrical engineering.
FUCHS Service is mastering these challenges in an excellent manner. The result is a high-quality service that securely maps this important element of the infrastructure.
A well-founded and easy-to-use documentation solution is one of the four cornerstones of a functioning fluid management. Only in this way the large amount of data can be meaningfully mapped and evaluated. FUCHS Service offers the prerequisites with a database that has been specially developed for lubricant management.
FUCHS Service offers a database solution that is 100% focused on the handling of lubricants. The scope of services covers the following functionalities:
- Complete documentation
- Measured values, consumption values, activities
- Warehouse management
- Control of consumption and costs
- Online solution, thus easy access at any time
- Scan at the machine via barcode devices or mobile phone (app)
FUCHS Service works out a system of key figures for the use of lubricants in your company. This enables standardised and structured monitoring of the status and progress.
The development is transparently summarised in a monthly reporting system. Progress is tracked. Actions can be identified and initiated.
As lubricant specialist, FUCHS is in intensive dialogue with its customers. The extensive experience we have gained in the use of lubricants is the basis for equipment solutions that we can recommend to you and that you can obtain easily and directly from us. One example is the analysis case for testing cooling lubricants.
The basis for many service elements is the intensive control of the media used. Monitoring solutions enable the surveillance of lubricants in use or during storage. Condition parameters or fill levels are recorded and evaluated. FUCHS Service offers a variety of modules for this purpose in order to be able to flexibly select the most suitable solution in each case and to achieve the best possible result.
The Fluid Analyzer monitors and documents process-relevant cooling lubricant parameters. If defined limit values are violated, an automatic alarm is triggered. This enables fast and effective intervention.
► Cost savings through extension of the coolant lifetime
► Higher process stability / increase in machine availability
► Contribution to QM documentation and occupational health and safety
► Contribution to Industry 4.0 - digitalisation of cooling lubricant
The highly modern lubricant laboratory centre of FUCHS in Mannheim houses research and development for the individual product areas as well as the quality and service laboratories. In the latter, about 5,000 analyses are carried out every week. In the scope of these, 120 methods are used, in accordance with international standards. Many of them are carried out with 50 latest-generation testing devices.
Thus, a wide variety of used oil analyses and continuous monitoring with trend analysis are realised. In addition, tests are monitored analytically. This enables a quick and well-founded reaction to all practical requirements.
The extensive expertise of the laboratory centre enables quality, service and development at the highest level.
FUCHS operates laboratories on site. With laboratory staff who receive further training at the laboratory centre in Mannheim. This ensures method qualification according to the FUCHS standard.
This results in consistently reliable results, proven audit-ready laboratory performance and on-site control, enabling a fast, flexible response. This leads to increased process safety and savings.
