Q5-How often does the machine need to be serviced and how long will I be without the machine?
A. The DISCMATE has an inbuilt service alert set at 1000hrs (Return to Manufacturer), we would expect 2- 3 days not including transport time.
Q6-How does it clean and get the scratches out of the disc?
A. The repair process the DISCMATE uses, is a specially developed liquid abrasive, which also acts as a cooling agent throughout the process. The repair cycle works by gently removing small amounts of material while keeping the discs cool to avoid any disc tilt. All of this process is automatically controlled by a micro computer and this allows less operator involvement.
Q7-How often do we need to change the polish?
A. The DISCMATE has an inbuilt polish alarm, each cartridge will give the operator 250 minutes of repair time.
Q8-How long does it take to clean a disc?
A. Of course this is not a simple question to answer, due to a various level of damage that can occur. However on a general note 1-2 minutes will repair 80 – 90 % of damage.
So we advise that a well implemented maintenance program should be put in place and this will allow the operator to save time and money.

A. Each polish pack comes with its own repair pad which is rated for 500 Minutes.
