    Hello Every one
    I am having some problems with my Imes Icore 240i

    We have a Imes Icore 240i sometime ago, last week during a milling I heard a weird noise (like a bearing grinding particles) then the machine looks like working apparently normal. However when I checked the copings that it was milling all of them was excesive milled for the same face direction. (long X axis) so I think is time to check the lubrication.

    I also did a Calibrations routine for all the axis, but still hearing sometimes the same noise.

    So I will be great If someone have the Instruction manual for lubricate the diferent parts and to do a general cleaning service for this one.

    thanks allot.

    The bearings are sealed. (Double or Triple sealed!)

    You will not be helping to add any oil or grease.

    Some bearing blocks and ball-screw have fitting for grease-gun.

    Then you can actually add grease the correct way! :)

    Most of my mills have this, and the others have auto-pump of grease to the bearings.

    Sounds like this mill is not closed-loop with encoders. Just blind folded mill that guess where position is?

    So, you will not see an error code because machine does not know it is fucking up. lol SmashPC

    That mill is too cheap to have anything you can grease or service
