Device with Friction Depending Lubrication

      Disclosed is a device for friction dependent lubrication of
axial moved components like a printer head of a printer device.

      The Figure shows a lubricated shaft (1) where during use the
friction between a print head (2) and the shaft (1) becomes higher.
A specified current limit of a drive motor (3) indicates that
lubrication is necessary.

      To lubricate, the head (2) will be moved in a special position.
At this position the head opens the valve (4) at a lubrication
reservoir (5).  The shaft will be lubricated accordingly.  This
always happens at  a specified  friction, during the whole lifetime
of the device.
