  • Tilting or abrasion of the machine’s body during transport can cause horizontal leveling imbalances that will impact its control system, resulting in equipment faults.

  • When the level gauge is moving, make sure it is not obstructed by the chuck or tailstock.

  • Ensure the machine’s anchor bolts and nuts are firmly installed and use them to make final horizontal leveling adjustments.
  • Following initial leveling during installation, perform routine leveling at the intervals specified in the following table:

Stage of Service Life Frequency
Two to three days after installation of the machine Daily
Within 6 months of installation Monthly
After six months have passed since installation Quarterly


Power Supply and Wiring

Correct grounding, inspection, and power supply connection procedures are necessary ensure the safety and performance of the machine and its electrical components.

Ensure that you have fully understood and completed the following procedures before beginning to operate the machine following installation.



  • Grounding must be performed by an authorized engineer during installation of the machine to ensure safe operation and prevent electrical hazards.
  • All electrical facilities must be grounded with the correct technical specifications to prevent risking injuries or faults in the equipment.
  • The grounding point should be close to the machine and should be arranged with separate wiring.
  • Ensure that an authorized engineer performs Class III grounding operations with the following criteria:

    1. Ground resistance of less than 100Ω

    2. Measurement using 500v high-resistance tester
    3. Cabling as specified in the following table:

      Cabling Specifications
      Cross-Section of Power Cord (mm²) Minimum Cross-Section of Grounding Wire (mm²)
      S≤16 S
      16<S≤35 16
      S>35 S/2
  • To ensure proper grounding, ground each machine at the worksite separately, and never ground multiple machines in series. Each machine should connect to its corresponding grounding terminal, and each terminal should have only one grounding wire.
  • The grounding resistance for the entire installation (in Ohms) is equal to 100 divided by the number of machines.

Checking the Power Supply

Strict quality control standards should observed throughout transport and delivery of the machine. However, due to vibrations and temperature changes that can affect it during transportation, the machine may require readjustment before beginning operation.

Installation personnel should perform the following inspections before connecting the machine to the power supply:
