Several Main Points of Laser Cutting Machine Maintenance

Jun. 19, 2020

At present, many manufacturers in the market are willing to spend huge sums of money to buy laser cutting machines, but how to maintain them after buying them has also become a concern of manufacturers. Today, the Industrial Laser Cutting Machine Factory is here to introduce a few effective methods for the daily maintenance of laser cutting machines.

1. Fan cleaning is indispensable

The use of the fan in the machine for a long time will cause a lot of solid dust to accumulate in the fan and the air duct, which will cause the fan to generate a lot of noise, which is also not conducive to dust and odor removal.

Maintenance method: loosen the connection hose of the exhaust pipe and the fan, remove the exhaust pipe, and clean the dust in the exhaust pipe and the fan.

Maintenance cycle: once a month

2. The tank cleaning should be timed

Before working on the machine, be sure to check the water quality in the water tank of the water-cooled machine. The water quality and temperature of the circulating water directly affect the service life of the laser.

Maintenance method: regularly replace the circulating water and clean the water tank.

Maintenance period: once every six months or if the equipment is not used for a long time, it is replaced before use

3. Lens cleaning day by day

There are mirrors and lenses on the machine. The laser light is reflected or focused by these lenses, and then emitted from the laser head. Lenses are prone to dust and other contaminants, causing laser wear or lens damage.

Maintenance method: check the mirror every two months, check the protective lens or focusing lens before work every day, if it is found dirty, first use a blown rubber ball to remove it, if it cannot be removed, then use cleaning supplies and no Ethanol, wipe gently in the same direction, replace immediately if damaged.

Maintenance period: protection mirror or focusing mirror once a day in the morning and evening, and reflecting mirror once a month.

4. Screws and couplings need to be tightened

After the motion system has been working for a period of time, the screws and couplings at the motion connection are easy to loosen, which will affect the stability of the mechanical motion. Therefore, it is necessary to observe the transmission components for abnormal noise or abnormal phenomena during the operation of the machine. Contact the manufacturer for adjustment and maintenance.

Maintenance method: Regularly communicate with the manufacturer about equipment status and maintenance.

Maintenance cycle: once a month

5. Rail cleaning is essential

Guide rails and racks, as one of the core components of the equipment, its function is to guide or support. During the operation of the equipment, a large amount of dust and smoke will be generated during the processing of the processed parts. These smoke and dust are deposited on the surface of the rails and racks for a long time, which will affect the processing accuracy of the equipment.

Maintenance method: First, wipe off the original lubricating oil and dust on the guide rail with a non-woven fabric. After wiping it clean, wipe the lubricating oil on the guide rail and the rack for maintenance.

Maintenance cycle: once a week

6. The light path before check

The optical path system of the laser cutting machine is focused on the mirror and the lens or only by the lens. All the mirrors and the lens are fixed by the mechanical part, there is a possibility of deviation, and it is usually not working. If there is an offset, the vibration will cause a slight offset during exercise, so regular inspection is required.

Maintenance method: The user checks the light mouth coaxial before working every day to determine whether the light path is normal.

Maintenance cycle: the optical mouth is coaxial once a day, and the inner optical path is half a year
