Default Work machine lubrication recommendation?

Hey guys

I am using a machine at work that requires frequent replacement of these brass plates that rubs against a rotating oval disc. The function is to move the slide as the oval disc makes contact with the plates. The disc is about the size of a silver dollar and rotates at about 1Hz (1 rotation per second). It only pushes the stage maybe 2-5mm at most.

What type of oil or grease would you recommend for this application? The previous tech seems to have used bearing grease, but this doesnt rotates that quickly or generates much heat.

coconut oil or blubber from a baby narwhal.

speed and heat aren't the only requirements for bearing grease. Pressure and the materials' interaction too. If it's high pressure, then I'd stick with the bearing grease or similar. Do you need more friction or less? I'm assuming less so that you don't have to replace that part as often? You might want to find a better grease suited for use on those particular metals. You can directly contact a lubrication manufacturer with your situation and ask for their recommendation too.
