Instructions for Maintaining the ATOM Shake Table in a Lab Environment

Storage and Dust Protection:

  • Covering: Always cover the ATOM shake table with a suitable dust cover when it is not in use. This will prevent dust accumulation on the table and its components.
  • Hardcase Storage: For extended periods of non-use, or when additional protection is needed, store the shake table in the hardcase provided. Ensure that the table is clean and dry before placing it inside the case.

Rail Maintenance:

  • Cleaning: Regularly clean the rails of the shake table to remove dust and debris. Use a soft, dry cloth or a brush specifically designed for delicate electronics.
  • Inspection: Periodically check the rails for any signs of wear or damage. Promptly address any issues to maintain optimal performance.
  • Lubrication: Apply a minimal amount of rail lubricant if the rails appear dry.

Power Management:

  • Turning Off: Always turn off the ATOM shake table from the power source when not in use. This conserves energy and reduces the risk of electrical issues.
  • Cable Care: Regularly inspect power cables and connections for any signs of damage or wear. Replace damaged cables immediately to ensure safe and reliable operation.

Climate Control:

  • Humidity and Temperature: Store the shake table in a climate-controlled area where high humidity does not exist. Ideal storage conditions should maintain a consistent temperature and low humidity to prevent moisture damage and corrosion.

Safety Precautions:

  • Protective Gear: Always wear safety glasses and gloves when operating the shake table to protect against potential hazards like flying debris or sharp edges.
  • Keep Hands Clear: Ensure that hands and other objects are kept clear of the shake table during operation to avoid injury.
  • Warning Signs: Display clear warning signs around the shake table area to remind users of operational hazards and safety practices.
  • Mounting: It is highly advisable to securely mount the shake table to stable ground prior to operation.

Additional Recommendations:

  • Ventilation: Ensure that the storage and operation area is well-ventilated. Adequate air-flow helps prevent the buildup of condensation and dust.
  • Routine Checks: Schedule regular maintenance checks to ensure all components of the shake table are functioning correctly. This includes testing the functionality of the table after periods of storage.
  • Usage Log: Maintain a usage log to track operation hours and maintenance activities. This can help predict wear patterns and schedule preventive maintenance.
  • Training: Ensure that all personnel who operate the shake table are properly trained on its use and maintenance procedures. Proper training reduces the risk of misuse and accidents.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can significantly extend the life and performance of your ATOM shake table and ensure it operates safely and effectively in your lab environment.
