Prior to storage, adequate antioxidation steps need to be taken to ensure prevention of rust & corrosion.
- For short term storage (30 days), a coating of lithium grease over the linear guide rails and ball screw is required. The end angle plates can be coated with machine oil. Silica Gel Desiccant Packets can be used to further reduce oxidation due to moisture.
- For long term storage, it is suggested that silicon based antioxidation coating may be applied to the guide rails, balls screws, end angles and other spots on the machine that may be prone to oxidation.
