Maximize CNC Press Brake Performance with Proper Lubrication

Proper lubrication is an essential measure to ensure the normal operation of the CNC press brake.

The operator must be familiar with all the parts of the machine that need to be lubricated (refer to the figure below) and lubricate them regularly.

The primary lubrication points of the machine tool are:

  • Guide rail of synchronous feedback system
  • Ram left and right guide rails
  • Rear stopper (X-axis) ball screw, guide rail, and bearing.

See the lubrication diagram for the location of lubrication points and lubrication time cycle.

Weekly lubrication with clean grease or oil is necessary to ensure normal use of the CNC press brake. Lubrication points must be familiarized and lubricated regularly by the operator. Vulnerable parts should be lubricated twice a week.

Note: Regular lubrication is recommended for guide rail, screw rod, and bearing. Lithium grease or #30 machine oil is recommended.
