To keep the machine in correct operation, and to extend its service life, AON3D recommends the maintenance schedule that follows.
The machine will require maintenance at a higher frequency when operating consistently at high temperature and with a high number of printing hours. The frequency at which preventive maintenance is performed will vary on the factors that follow:
• Print and/or travel speeds.
• Hot end and/or build chamber temperature settings.
• Number of toolheads being used.
The schedule that follows is based on an average printing time of 30 hours a week at a chamber temperature of 120°C (248°F) or less.
