After every use:

Clean the bending rolls after every operation.
Repair or replace damaged or worn parts.
Check, and if necessary, tighten loose threaded joints, and replace damaged bolts or nuts with new ones.

Periodical inspections:

After every 80 hours of work, unfasten the cover from the rear of the machine’s body, then apply lubricant to the gear found inside the machine using a brush.

After every year, inspect the motor and electrical apparatus; this inspection is to be conducted by an electrician and is based on removing dust, dirt and checking terminals, motor terminals, control circuits, grounding and insulation, as well as the condition of plugs, the socket and cables.

Inspect the condition of the surface of the bending roll’s channel regularly and in the case of significant material loss, replace the part with one that is new and undamaged.
