How do I maintain my CNC router?
It is recommended that you clean your machine and parts to avoid any swarf, chips and dust from materials building up during production. These can get into smaller areas such as in controls and bearings and affect the operation, these can be removed simply with a brush, just make sure you are moving the debris away from the machine, bearings and controls. The air system (if your machine has one) also needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain steady operation.
When your machine includes various moving components you need to keep these functioning smoothly to allow your CNC router to work at peak performance. Not all parts require this so check with our support staff, as we offer lifetime remote technical support, whether your machine or any parts need regular oiling or greasing.
