Here are 4 ways to ensure longevity of your Applicators:1) Grease the ram, roller pin, cam, as well as inside of the cast body (See images Below) should be lightly coated with white lithium grease. The main ram and down inside the cast body are the most important areas to grease and maintain a light coat of grease throughout production. You can remove the ram from the body but be sure to leave the red safety collar, provided with each applicator, on the ram when re-inserting it into the body.
- We recommend greasing the critical components listed above before production, or every 100,000 cycles
- Do not use Air as it can blow debris further into critical places.
