What should we do when the spindle is blocked

The spindle is the core component of the CNC router, we should be extra careful. Common spindles include air-cooled spindles and water-cooled spindles. The air-cooled spindle is equipped with a small fan to dissipate heat.
The spindle is the core component of the CNC router
, we should be extra careful. Common spindles include air-cooled spindles and water-cooled spindles. The air-cooled spindle is equipped with a small fan to dissipate heat, no coolant is needed, and it is not easy to rust, suitable for cold areas. The water-cooled spindle has good cooling effect, low noise and low price, which is suitable for processing metal and stone in hot areas.
The inside of the water-cooled spindle is made of metal. When the spindle is running for water circulation, water will inevitably be left behind. As the cnc router is used for a longer time, the metal and water in the spindle react to form rust, which will form a blockage over time, which will result in the inability to circulate the water, the spindle cannot radiate heat in time, and may even damage the spindle bearing.
When you touch the spindle with your hand, you can feel noticeably hot. Or if the cnc router is placed for a long time, it may be blocked when it is restarted.
When we find that the spindle is blocked, we should take a series of measures to solve this problem. This tutorial video shows us the specific steps, let's take a look.
In order to facilitate viewing, I put the subtitles below.
As the cnc router
has been used for a longer time, the metal and water in the spindle react to form rust, which will form a blockage over time, which will result in the inability to circulate the water and the spindle to lose heat in time.
So how do we solve the problem when the spindle is blocked? Follow me find this answer.
Spindle blockage solution steps
1. Soak the spindle with cola and other weak acid substances, so that the cola completely covers the water inlet and outlet of the spindle (about 1-2 days)
2. Use rust remover and other metal removal potions to soak the spindle
3. Use compressed air to aim at the inlet or outlet and blow hard
4. After dredging the spindle, be sure to clean up residual cola and acid substances
