Maintenance

We recommend that you inspect measuring instruments and replace consumable parts periodically to avoid breakdown and use them for a long time. We introduce inspection method examples here.

Inspection of measuring instruments

Mechanical Force Gauges

  • We recommend that a mechanical force gauge gets accuracy inspection by weights regularly.
  • Apply load to check if the pointer needle holds firmly when turning on peak switch.
  • Check if its measuring thread has scratches or distortion.

Digital Force Gauges

  • We recommend that a digital force gauge gets accuracy inspection by weights regularly.
  • Check if its measuring thread has scratches or distortion.
  • We recommend that the battery should be replaced when its life becomes shorter.

Test Stands

  • Check the emergence button and stroke limit knobs to see if they work fine.
  • We recommend that an actuator of a test stand should be greased.

Shaft part: Please use lithium-based grease
Screw part: Please use molybdenum disulfide-based grease

*Please do not use lubrication or silicon spray since they may include cleaning ingredients and they are easy to volatilize.

Attachments

  • Inspect if grips’ teeth and urethane are deteriorated or not.
  • Check if there is crack on the attachment.

*Please do not use organic solvents such as thinner to clean.
