Your Leister equipment is more than just an investment. It's also a lifeline for your commercial roofing company. If your heat gun or robot isn't working, you can't work. And if you can't work, you're not getting paid. Plus, your projects might fall behind schedule, which could lead to unnecessary expenses and, ultimately, unhappy customers. You can avoid most of this stress by taking good care of your Leister equipment. And we can help. Roofers Mart is an authorized Leister sales and service center, and our in-house Leister technician, Adam Cummings, is one of the best in the region. Here are his six tips to help you properly maintain your equipment:
Protect your machine from the elements. Like most electronics, Leister equipment should be stored in a dry environment. Better yet, keep it in a box when it's not in use.
Clean your welding machine's nozzle after use, but make sure you're not putting pressure on the lock pin.
Strive to get your equipment serviced every four months. Adam will open it up and blow out all the dust, change your belts, oil up your bearings, and do everything needed to keep it running smoothly.
Use a proper rated generator. To determine the minimum rating, double the wattage of the machine you are using.
Don't try to repair your equipment yourself. Leister repairs can be complicated, and without the proper experience, you could make the problem worse.
