Regardless of the industry and the nature of work, the industrial machine is prone to wear and tear with the passage of time. However, what if someone told you that you could trade a worn-out machine for a brand-new one apart from getting maintenance services from the right professionals?
Trade-up services come along at a later stage in production lines. Devising an efficient plan includes regular DIY maintenance, getting professional help to evaluate the machine in your production line, and then deciding regarding trade-up, given the wear and tear of the machine. Working on similar lines, we will highlight some DIY maintenance techniques, the assistance offered by Wood Tech professionals, and an exchange of old vs. new machines via our trade-up services in this article.
So let us start with locating and fixing the maintenance issues you can handle yourself. Some of the most commonly found maintenance issues occur in the spindle motor. They can range from drive faults to motor overheating. These come as a symptom with several probable reasons, including an internal short circuit, the temperature sensor going south, something wrong with the vector drive, or an over-aggressive application.
Now that we have the probable causes let us look at the relevant corrective measures that can be taken. For each issue, the appropriate machine component needs to be tested. Another step could be to try the cables and connections, whether the spindle motor, vector drive or overheating sensor. A problem can lead to overheating issues in the spindle or overload.
Vector drive is a part that needs utmost safety precautions while handling. Talking about its voltage indicator, you need to refrain from touching the drive if the voltage indicator is on. Touching it at this point may prove fatal as the control cabinet has a higher voltage.
Cable inspection is always imperative regardless of the old vs. new machine debate. To inspect the cables, you need to disconnect all cables going to the spindle motor and the electric cabinet. Once disconnected, the meter test follows; readings on the meter tell you how the cable is doing; if it reads O.L, it indicates everything is working fine. However, if it reads a short circuit, the cable needs replacement.
