Jet Spindle – Cleaning in 4 Simple Steps

We recommend checking and cleaning the coolant nozzles every three months or when you experience a sudden decrease in the performance of the jet spindle.  From our experience, small cut metal chips can find their way through the jet cover into the area of the turbine and high-pressure coolant nozzles. This article will take you through the step-by-step process of cleaning the coolant nozzles.  If you have any questions please contact our technical support team.  All that you need is a 4T Allen key and Loctite #222 adhesive.
