L for long periods. The main part of maintenance is cleaning coolant tanks. This video gives a few ideas on how to get your coolant tank clean and make sure your CNC machine runs along.
While the CNC machine may require little oil to operate the components it’s cutting are covered by it. In order to avoid problems in the future, any oil that is left in the cooler tank should be removed. The wipes that absorb oil can be placed directly over the coolant’s surface. It is important to dispose the oily rags into the correct waste container in order to avoid fires.
After the oil is cleaned out, use the perforated scoop to look whether there are any chips left in the material the CNC tool is cutting. Drag them out and get out of the way. If chips pile up they could contaminate your coolant, which means you’re lacking to work with in your system. Also, they provide a place where bacteria can grow and produce more harm.
