 Step 1: Remove the dust and granules

Made of stainless steel and exposed in the air, the tablet press machine is a good landing place for dusts. A long time accumulation of dust not only makes the machine tarnished, but also heaps up on the transmission parts, which may affect its fluent running. Just try to use a air pump or air blower or something like that can generate a gust of air, to blow away dust and the granules on the die plate.


 Step 2: Use a brush to wipe off dust in hard-reach corners

 Step 4: Add lubricating grease in the oil cups

Oil cups is the main source to provide oil for machine running. Without oil, the machine can not run, run laboriously at least. So timely add some grease into the oil cups is quite essential to keep machine running.

Besides the oil cups, the transmission parts also need grease. Apply the grease on the gears and cams, and rotate the hand-wheel to make machine run slowly so as to be evenly applied.
