Having your WARDjet machine serviced regularly is considered by some to be an unnecessary expense whereas others would never fail to book their routine service call. In the long run servicing can actually save money by identifying potential issues before they become serious and expensive to repair and by optimizing machine performance and accuracy which saves time and eliminates waste.
Like any machine, a CNC waterjet has many moving parts and can often be running long hours, this, combined with the inevitable ingress of abrasive from normal machine operation, can lead to premature failure of components if not managed correctly. A routine service allows you to plan maintenance at a time which is convenient to you.
Think of a service as preventive maintenance – preserve the performance of your machine while preventing unforeseen breakdowns which can be disruptive and costly.
What does a regular machine service cover?
Typically, a machine service will include cleaning and lubricating all bearings and drive systems, checking drive motors and transmission systems, stripping, inspecting, and rebuilding the cutting head, cutting and examining an accuracy test part, and ballbar calibration. High pressure components are inspected, and advice will be given on any required pump maintenance.
How long does a service take?
This depends on the model, age and configuration of your machine and also whether any issues are discovered. You should typically allow 4 – 6 hours for the technician to complete the job. Don’t forget that in between services there are a set of very simple daily, weekly and monthly maintenance procedures that should take only minutes to complete and will ensure you get the best performance and reliability out of your machine.
We recommend your WARDjet machine is serviced at least once every 12 months.
