for OURAGAN PLO and ALIZE sanders
The drum shaft is an essential part that plays a central role in the machine's sanding system. This shaft is located at the heart of the sander and its function is to support and rotate the sanding drum.
The sanding drum is the rotating part of the belt sander that supports the sanding belt. When the sander is running, the drum shaft rotates the sanding drum, allowing surfaces to be sanded or polished.
When should I consider changing the drum shaft?
1. Wear: like any moving mechanical part, the drum shaft can wear out over time, especially if the sander is used frequently. If you notice signs of wear such as deformation, corrosion or irregular movement of the sanding drum, it's time to change the drum shaft.
2. Damage: shocks or impacts can damage the drum shaft, causing the sanding drum to rotate incorrectly or the sander to malfunction.
3. Abnormal noises: if you hear unusual noises, grinding or metal rubbing when using the belt sander, this may be due to a problem with the drum shaft.
4. Difficulty rotating the drum: if the sanding drum does not rotate properly or exhibits abnormal movements during operation of the sander, this may indicate a problem with the drum shaft.
In conclusion, the drum shaft is crucial to the smooth operation of the sanding system. If you notice any signs of wear, damage, abnormal noises or difficulty rotating the drum, it is recommended that you replace the drum shaft. Make sure you choose a quality replacement drum shaft and follow the after-sales service instructions for its installation. Regular replacement of the drum shaft will help ensure optimum performance of the belt sander and extend its life.
