Today we share 8 Tips help you to maintain a laser cutting machine that is used daily with you.
Laser cutting engraving machine knowledge always makes us operate laser machines better.
1-Water. Recycling water replacement and water tank cleaning: Before the machine works, the laser tube must be filled with circulating water. The water quality and water temperature of the circulating water directly affect the service life of the laser tube. Therefore, it is necessary to periodically replace the circulating water and clean the water tank. This is best done once a week.
2-Fan cleaning.The long-term use of the fan in the machine will cause a lot of solid dust to accumulate inside the fan, which will cause a lot of noise and is not conducive to exhaust and deodorization. When the fan suction is insufficient and the smoke is not smooth, the fan must be cleaned.
3-Cleaning of the lens: There are some mirrors and focusing mirrors on the machine. The laser is reflected by these lenses, focused and emitted from the laser head. Lenses are easily stained with dust or other contaminants, causing laser loss or lens damage. So clean the lens every day.if you need new lens or mirrors for your laser machine, you could also contact us to get it at SMARTECH CNC LASER
Daily maintenance is one of the major things we need to make sure for the laser parts involved in the process. The simple way of cleaning the lens and mirror is removing it gently and cleaning both the sides with a q-tip or lens paper.
Pay attention when cleaning:
1.) The lens should be wiped gently, and the surface coating should not be damaged;
2.) The wiping process should be handled gently to prevent falling;
3.) Be sure to keep the concave side facing down when installing the focusing mirror.
4-Rails cleaning: The guide rail and linear shaft are one of the core components of the equipment. Its function is to guide and support. In order to ensure the machine has high machining accuracy, the guide rail and straight line are required to have high guiding precision and good motion stability. During the operation of the equipment, due to the large amount of corrosive dust and smoke generated during processing, the smoke and dust are deposited on the surface of the guide rail and the linear shaft for a long time, which has a great influence on the processing precision of the equipment. An etch point is formed on the surface of the linear axis of the guide rail to shorten the service life of the device. So clean the machine guide every half month. Turn off the machine before cleaning.
5-Tightening of screws and couplings: After the working system is working for a period of time, the screws and couplings at the joints will be loose, which will affect the smoothness of the mechanical movement. Therefore, observe the transmission components during the operation of the machine. No abnormal noise or abnormality, and the problem should be strengthened and maintained in time. At the same time, the machine should use a tool to tighten the screws one by one. The first time it should be sturdy about a month after the device is used.
6-Inspection of the optical path: The optical path system of the machine is completed by the reflection of the mirror and the focusing of the focusing mirror. In the optical path, there is no offset problem in the focusing mirror, but the three mirrors are fixed by the mechanical part, offset It is more likely, although there is usually no offset, but it is recommended that the user check whether the light path is normal before each work.
7.Clean out the Filters
With regular maintenance tasks, you need to maintain the filter as well. Based on its usage and the type of materials, you need to change the inner 'pad' pre-filer and clean the foam dust collector.
Here are the hints that indicate that you need to replace the filter:
Smoke is collecting in the laser bay.
Fire/flares in the bay.
Odor emanating from the machine.
The filter is dirty on both sides.
Here are the steps to follow to replace the filter:
Open up the machine.
You will see the inner filtration assembly inside. There would be a foam dust collector inside the metal mess. Since it catches the big dust particles, rinse this out in the sink and dry it out.
There would be a wrapped pad pre-filter on the outside.
You can buy new pre-filters and wrap them around.
8-Water temperature.Pay attention to the cooling water temperature and air temperature difference is not too big, laser cutting bed of laser and optical lens are used water cooling way, because the water met with cold air will condense into ice, to a large extent affected the light efficiency of laser and optical lenses, through to the great influence on the service life of laser energy and optical accessories. Macro mountain suggest the general laser laser cutter users to set temperature for 30 to 32 degrees, control the cooling water temperature and room temperature difference in temperature is greater than 7 degrees.
