Maintenance of flat shearing machine

As a proud owner of a flat shearing machine, it's important to ensure that it remains in top-notch condition to deliver consistent and efficient results. Proper maintenance not only prolongs the life of the machine but also guarantees the quality of the finished products. Here are some essential maintenance tips straight from the factory that will keep your flat shearing machine in prime working condition.

Blade Maintenance

Regular maintenance of the blades is crucial for optimal performance. After each use, it is recommended to clean the blades to remove any residual hairs or debris that may have accumulated. This can be done by gently blowing out any floating hairs from the blades using compressed air. Additionally, if you notice that the blades are not as sharp as they should be, they can be sharpened using an oil stone (we suggest to sharpen the blades by your local knife and tools sharpener).

To maintain the blades' longevity and performance, applying microcrystalline wax (ceresin wax) occasionally is recommended. This wax provides lubrication and prevents rust, ensuring smooth cutting and prolonging the sharpness of the blades. Microcrystalline wax, derived from petroleum vacuum residue through deoiling and refining, is an ideal choice for maintaining the blades' condition.



Internal Cleaning

While the inside of the shearing machine generally does not require frequent cleaning, it's still important to address any residual hairs or debris that may accumulate during use. Cleaning the inside of the machine after each use ensures its cleanliness and efficiency. The use of compressed air to blow out floating hairs from the blades is a simple step that helps to maintain the machine's optimal performance, without the need for oil application that could potentially stain carpets.

Maintenance Frequency

Cleaning the machine after every use is recommended to prevent the build-up of hair and debris, ensuring consistent performance. Applying microcrystalline wax to the blades should be done periodically to maintain their sharpness and prevent rust. The frequency of wax application can vary depending on the usage of the machine and the specific manufacturer's recommendations.


By following these maintenance guidelines provided by the factory, you can ensure that your flat shearing machine continues to operate at its best. With regular care and attention, as well as proper blade maintenance and occasional wax application, your machine will consistently deliver precise results, ultimately contributing to the success of your operations. Remember to clean the machine after each use, sharpen the blades when necessary, and apply microcrystalline wax to enhance performance and prolong the life of your shearing machine.
