How to ensure longevity of your used drilling machine

When it comes to promoting the longevity of a used machines, it is important to employ the correct maintenance procedures at the correct intervals. Products such as used drilling machines will have specific maintenance techniques that will allow you to enjoy their use for many years and will ensure that their performance does not deteriorate. Here’s how you can ensure the longevity of your used drilling machine:

Maintain a schedule

The first thing that you should do to ensure the longevity of your used drilling machine is to create a schedule. This schedule will ensure that you perform maintenance at the correct times and that you do not forget to check certain elements. We recommend creating a schedule that implements daily, weekly and monthly maintenance.

 

Lubricate

Lubrication is key when it comes to a drilling machine, especially when it is used to drill a lot of holes in large batches of steel components. These machines have many different moving parts and if they are not well-lubricated, it can result in the machine breaking down. Regular lubrication will ensure the longevity of your drilling machine. Remember to constantly check the lubricant levels and change the lubricant from time to time.

 

Clean the machine

Cleaning all the used drilling machine’s components and crevices is important, especially if the machine operates in a dusty environment. Cleaning the machine will reduce the chance of unnecessary wear and tear due to abrasive materials.

 

Check for wear and tear

Although you may be taking steps to reduce the risk of wear and tear on your used drilling machine, some parts are more susceptible than others. Don’t neglect regular wear and tear inspections in order to prolong the life of your drilling machine.

Keep records

Another way to ensure the longevity of the machine is to keep maintenance and repair records. This will ensure that you know which areas of the machine are most likely to become compromised, allowing you to focus on specific areas and take notice of slight damage before it deteriorates further.
