A factory-trained Allegheny Educational Systems technician will perform the following preventive maintenance on your machine:


General:

- Empty the purge bucket.
- Wipe down the guide rods and inspect them for rust; replace the assembly if necessary. XY Table         Assembly would only be done as needed.
- Remove built-up material debris around Z-Stage casting.
- Vacuum out the build chamber.
- Clean the electronics bay fan filter.
- Using soap and water on a damp cloth: clean the exterior, including the door.

Head Assembly:

- Inspect the tip wipe assembly for material build-up and wear; replace if necessary.
- Make sure the toggle bar is the crimped design. Verify with Technical Support.
