Improved bearing reliability for bakery cooling machine

Challenge

A large bakery uses a spiral cooling machine which has 28 lubrication points. The operating temperature is 25°C and rotates at 100 rpm. 
Preventive maintenance is difficult to perform due to the limited access area being unsafe. Therefore, often bearings would not be lubricated for many weeks, causing unscheduled production downtime and increased maintenance costs.
