6 tips to maintain the stone cnc router

We all know that the machine needs regular maintenance, and the engraving machine is the same. Daily maintenance is essential to keep the components of the engraving machine in good condition and to extend the life of the machine. Blue Elephant teaches you how to maintain the stone CNC router from 6 tips to avoid a series of faults when the machine is working.

Tip 1: Regularly check whether the water circulation system and the lubrication device are normal. Especially in the cold winter, it is necessary to replace the antifreeze in time and replace the motor oil. In the case of low temperature in winter, if the antifreeze is not replaced in time, the water pipe will freeze, and the cooling water will freeze in the spindle, which will cause the spindle to freeze and crack. Besides that the oil will be thicker and the oil will flow slowly. Therefore, if the motor oil is not replaced in time, the oil supply system will malfunction.

Tip 2: Pay attention to the spindle temperature at all times, and cool down the spindle to prevent the spindle from being damaged by overheating. In summer, air temperature is higher, so the spindle temperature will be higher. It is very necessary to pay attention to the temperature of the spindle at all times. If the spindle of stone engraving machine is not equipped with a circulating cooling system, which will cause damage to the spindle. In view of this situation, on the one hand, we can add the new cold water to the water tank to ensure the temperature of the spindle through the normal circulation of water. On the other hand, it is also possible to equip the water chiller separately to ensure that the temperature of the spindle is not too high.

Tip 3: Ensure good grounding, reduce static interference to improve machine stability and protect the operator. Especially in thunderstorms, it is recommended that you do not run the machine and that the power supply is completely disconnected.

Tip 4: Ensure good grounding, reduce static interference to improve machine stability and protect the operator. Especially in thunderstorms, it is recommended that you do not run the machine and that the power supply is completely disconnected.

Tip 5: Keep the workshop ventilated and check the workshop for dripping. The engraving machine is made of steel or cast iron, the structure will be relatively stable. However, water droplets on the engraving machine can not only cause rust damage to the machine body; at the same time, too humid working environment can cause other faults such as short circuit of electronic components inside the power distribution box of the engraving machine.

Tip 6: Try to avoid peak periods of electricity consumption. At this time, there is often a phenomenon that the voltage of the power supply is unstable. For the cnc router, there will be a phenomenon that the spindle stop rotating, and even a phenomenon that the drive is overloaded and burned out. Therefore, it is recommended that you avoid the peak period or use a voltage regulator to ensure the circuit is normal.
