Centrifugal barrel machine maintenance is critical to running over time. Centrifugal barrel finishing machine runs with high energy with 25G gravity force. The different of centrifugal barrel finishing machine with other mass finishing process is that centrifugal action results in a very fast, highly controllable operation.
The centrifugal barrel machine operates under high duty condition, as a result, timely maintenance of machine components is very important. Usually, we recommend our customer to check machine condition once a month.
Check if the bolts and nuts loose
Check bolts and nuts if it loose every month
If bots and nuts in above points are loose, need to tighten it
There are 10 lubrication points in each centrifugal barrel finishing machine. Each month we suggest making the lubrication greasing one time to make sure rotational movement in good conditions.
Check if belt is loose
Every month we need to check if the belt is loose. Once we found belt is loose, we need to make it tight again.
Check if PU lining of barrel is worn out
PU lining is important to protect parts from damage. If PU anywhere in the barrel is wearing out, the user needs to change the PU lining or change the whole barrel. For smaller volume machine model, PU insert is removable for example CB30A and CB36A. One can simply remove the PU insert and replace by a new one. For bigger machine models, once the barrel is worn out, customer needs to change complete barrel with PU lining.
