Lathe Maintenance

As any manufacturer knows, machines and equipment are expensive. They are expensive to buy, and they are expensive to replace, which is why maintenance is such an important part of upkeep. Our lathe maintenance services are utilised by manufacturers throughout the world who want to increase their productivity and ensure their machinery is well looked after.

Lathes are important parts of a lot of production processes, so it only makes sense to look after them and maintain them as much as possible. With lathe maintenance services, it’s possible to detect any potential problems before they arise. This cuts down on the chances of something going wrong with the lathe, leading to downtime. It also cuts down on the chances of you having to pay out a hefty amount for future repair costs, as it’s a lot more affordable to fix a small problem before it turns into something more serious.

    What Does Lathe Maintenance Entail?

    There are three key parts to our lathe maintenance service:

    Lathe Lubrication– It’s important that a lathe is well lubricated, to ensure that it can move smoothly as intended. Using a lathe without proper lubrication can impact the production process, as well as causing damage to the lathe itself. Therefore lubrication should be a key part of lathe maintenance and it’s one of the first things to think about when looking after a machine.

    Lathe Debris Removal– Over time and with a lot of use, a lathe may become overrun with dirt and debris. This can affect the performance of the equipment, especially if it is not cleaned regularly. Removing anything that begins to build up is a key part of lathe maintenance and though a regular basic clean can make a difference, a much more thorough lathe maintenance service is usually recommended.

    Check for Wear and Tear– If you know anything about CNC machines, you will know that a lot of use can lead to general wear and tear. Therefore, you should check the lathe for any signs of damage, as wear and tear can hinder performance if it’s not dealt with. If something on the lathe needs replacing or improving, our lathe maintenance specialists will know what to do.
