We recommend adding water / coolant in the following frequency:

Adding water: When the water level in the tank has reached the lower limit

Replacing the coolant: Once a week, or at every 15 hours of usage

Please refer to "How to add water / coolant to the coolant tank" for details.

 

 We recommend replacing the filter for the coolant tank in the following frequency:

Whenever the filter is dirty:Once a month (depending on the usage)

3) How should I prepare for milling?

1. Tools: The tool(s) you set on the ATC magazine must be the same as the one(s) you configured in your CAM software.

2. Material:  Thesize/ thickness of the material you set on the machine must be the same as the one you configured in your CAM software.

3. Stabilizing the material :  The cap must be tightened firmly.

4. Compressor:  Required amount of compressed air must be supplied.

4) Is there anything I should do after the milling?

After a days work, clean the inside of the machine with a dry cloth. Pay extra attention to the spindle head and the rotary axes as if the water or debris remain left after the milling, it may affect the outcome of the quality of the milling.
