Maintaining machines is very important in a garment factory.
Lifeline of any manufacturing company, machines play an important role in any manufacturing facility.
Maintaining them is ideal for any company, and in this post we would outline how to do overlock maintenance properly as per rules set in the garment manufacturing industry.
In prevention of accident caused by unfamiliarity with the machine, repair and adjustment has to be carried out by a service technician who is thoroughly familiar with the machine within the scope defined in the instruction manual.
Be sure to use authorised genuine parts when replacing any of the machine parts. For a garment or a t shirt manufacturer it s very important to maintain the companies machines.
In prevention of the accident caused by unfamiliarity with the machine or electrical shock accident, be sure to ask an electrical technician of the company or an authorised distributor in your area for repair and maintenance for electrical components.
Another point to be noted is that all overlock installations should be regularly checked by authorised professionals for leakages to be plugged and ensuring a safe working environment for everybody involved.
When carrying out repair or overlock maintenance of the machine which uses air driven parts such as an air cylinder, be sure to remove the air supply pipe to expel air remaining in the machine beforehand, in order to prevent accident caused by abrupt start of the air-driven parts.
Check regularly that the screw and nuts are free from looseness after completion of repair, adjustment and part replacement.

Be sure to periodically clean up the machine during its duration of use. Be sure to turn the power off and verify that the machine and motor stop completely before cleaning the machine in order to prevent accident caused during overlock machine maintenance.
Make sure to turn the power off and verify that the machine and motor stop completely before carrying out overlock machine maintenance, inspection or repair of the machine. (For the machine with a clutch motor, the motor will keep running for a while by inertia even after turning the power off. So, please be very careful.)
If the machine cannot be normally operated after repair or adjustment, immediately stop operation and contact the authorised service centre for repair to avoid injuries and a grave situation. Do the same when you would repair a coverstitch machine.
If the fuse is blown, be sure to turn the power off and eliminate the cause of blowing the fuse and replace the blown fuse. with a new one to prevent accident that can result in personal injury or death.
Last but not the least, make sure to periodically clean up the air vent of the fan and inspect the area around the wiring in order to prevent fire accident of the motor.
