Stork Prints America Inc., based in Charlotte, NC, USA, has become a distributor of lubricants and greases for manufacturer Kluber Lubrication North America LP. The products are specifically designed for the textile printing and coating and graphics printing industries. Kluber Lubrication's North American office is located in Londonderry, NH, USA. According to the company, Kluber provides lubricants and greases for every application that Stork Prints supplies.
"Stork Prints is providing high-quality printing systems, printing screens and forms, spare parts and services, and maintenance for both the textile printing and the graphics printing industries," says Edward Scheppink, managing director of Stork Prints America. "We feel that the supply of high-quality lubricants and greases for capital goods will be of complimentary value to our customers. Because of the reduction of the wear, the reduction of energy consumption and the improvement of press up time, the Kluber products are a logical fit.”
According to the company, high-speed machines, shorter runs and more changeovers are demanding more durability of printing machines. However, longevity of products is also a key factor. “Our customers have to deal with more efficiency and at the same time with environmental requirements. The Kluber lubricants and greases have shown to reduce wear, need fewer changes and will contribute to higher machine utilization with less impact on the environment," Scheppink says.
