Why you need regular ball screw service for your KOMO routers:
We often get calls from companies when their CNC equipment, including KOMO routers like the one below, start to make noise or worse, seize up. Many operators don’t understand that the grit the router ball screws are exposed to can cause extreme ball screw wear. This negatively impacts your cut accuracy and quality. Over time, however, ball screw wear can become so bad that the ball screw seizes. You are now facing lost production time – and lost revenue.
Clean, Flush, and Inspections to Maintain KOMO Routers’ Performance
You can avoid this with regular clean, flush, and inspection service for your KOMO router. You do not need to ship out your ball screw. A technician will perform this service on site to help keep your router running at peak performance. The ball screw will be cleaned/flushed and the bearings inspected for wear (pitting, spalling, etc.). If the ball bearings show wear – resulting in unacceptable tolerances for accuracy – an experienced service professional will replace the ball bearings. Service is typically complete in less than one shift.
If you have not had your KOMO routers inspected and cleaned recently (or ever!), call (888) 316-2126 or email us to determine if this service is right for you.
