How to extend the service life of laser cutter?

The laser cutter is a tool inmanufacturer’s production, the quality and service are very important, the maintenance is also very important. We will share how to extend the service life of laser cutter in this article.

Firstly, maintenance of the optical system  of  laser  cutter

Fiber laser cutter

How to extend the service life of laser cutter

After the device has been running for a period of time, some dust will stick to the surface of the lens. This dust will have a great impact on the reflectance of the lens and the transmittance of the lens, which will reduce the power of the laser. At this time, it is necessary to clean the lens. The dust, but you must be careful when cleaning up. The lens is a damaged item. Please handle it gently. Do not touch the lens with sharp or hard objects.

The steps and precautions for cleaning the lens are as follows: First, use absorbent cotton dipped in ethanol to wipe carefully along the center to the edge of the lens. The lens needs to be wiped gently, and the surface coating should not be damaged. Be sure to keep the concave surface down when installing the focusing lens. In addition, the use of ultra-high-speed piercing should be minimized at ordinary times. And the use of conventional piercing can prolong the service life of the focusing lens.

Secondly, maintenance of the dust removal system of laser cutter

The dust removal fan will accumulate a lot of dust after long-term use. If it is not cleaned regularly, it will lead to insufficient wind power and unsmooth smoke exhaust. This will affect the effect of exhaust deodorization and generate a lot of noise. You must pay attention to it during the cleaning process. To be safe, first turn off the power and remove the device on the fan. First remove the inlet and outlet ducts, clean up the dust inside, turn the fan upside down, flip the fan blades inside until it is clean, and then install the fan. It is best to keep the fan cleaned once a month.

Thirdly, maintenance of the transmission system of laser cutter

During the long-term cutting process of the equipment, will generate dust and smoke. Small smoke and dust will enter the equipment through the dust cover and adhere to the rail rack. Long-term accumulation will increase the wear of the rail rack. Rack guide rails are relatively precise accessories. Large amounts of dust are on the surfaces of guide rails and linear shafts for a long time, which has a great impact on the processing accuracy of the equipment. And will form corrosion points on the surface of the linear shaft of the guide rails, shortening the service life of the equipment.

Therefore, in order to make the equipment work normally and steadily and ensure the processing quality of the products, it is necessary to do a good job of daily maintenance of the guide rail and linear axis, and regular dust removal and cleaning. After cleaning the dust, grease the rack and lubricate the guide rail with lubricating oil. Each bearing should also be oiled regularly, so as to maintain flexible driving, precise machining and prolong the service life of the machine tool.

Fourthly, maintenance of cooling system of laser cutter

Need to replace the water in the cold water cabinet regularly. Generally, it needs to replace once a week. The quality and temperature of the circulating water directly affect the service life of the laser tube. Generally, manufacturers will require customers to use pure or distilled water, and the water temperature must below 35 degrees. If you do not change the water for a long time, it is easy to form scale, which will cause the pipeline to block, so you must change the water regularly.

The cooling water is responsible for taking away the heat generated by the laser tube. The higher the water temperature, the lower the light output power (15-20℃ water temperature is better); when the water is cut off, the tube end will burst due to the heat in the laser cavity and even damage the laser power supply. . Therefore, it is necessary to check whether the cooling water is unblocked at any time. When the water pipe has a hard bend (dead bend) or falls off, and the water pump fails, it must be repaired in time to avoid power drop or even equipment damage.

Fifthly, working environment requirements of laser cutter

The production workshop where the equipment is placed should be dry and well ventilated. The indoor temperature should preferably be between 4-33°C.  Also should prevent the equipment from condensation in summer and anti-freezing measures should be taken in winter. The equipment should be placed far away from places with electromagnetic interference, away from places with large electricity and strong earthquakes.

The interference of large electricity will cause the equipment to malfunction from time to time. Although it is not inevitable, also must prevent it. Therefore, the equipment should not be placed with large electric welding. Nearby equipment, such as machines, giant electric mixers, etc. Not to mention strong vibrations, ground vibrations will obviously cause deviations in the accuracy of laser engraving.

Sixthly, some other matters needing attention of laser cutter

During the operation of the equipment, the operator should always observe the operation of the equipment. If an abnormality occurs, immediately stop the operation of the equipment, cut off the power supply. And promptly report to a professional to inspect and repair the equipment. Do not disassemble and repair the equipment without permission. Perform regular statistics on the use of the equipment, and if there is an effect deviation, it should replace in time to prevent it before it happens. If you don’t know whether produced the material, do not process it, so as to avoid potential dangers and damage the laser equipment.

New design 6060 high precision laser cutting machine

New design high quality precision fiber laser metal cutting-Precision fiber laser metal cutting.

Precise laser cutting performed in the same way as a traditional milling machine. Both techniques allow cutting on X, Y and Z axes that apply to cutting mechanisms. Meanwhile, a milling machine uses a drill to create cuts, a laser cutter uses a high-energy laser.

Laser cutting is the easiest for the product, allowing cutting to start at the edge of the material. Most precision laser cutters have both piercing and continuous wave cutting capabilities. Pierce holes often add a few seconds of production time to each part and should be avoided if possible.

Laser cutting offers many advantages over traditional metal cutting techniques because laser cutting produces no physical contact with the cut materials. As a result, laser cutting provides improved accuracy and can cut complex shapes. Other benefits include consistency across a wide range of parts, partial deformation, and the ability to quickly create design changes. In addition, the risk of injury will be smaller.

Precision laser cutting machine based on thin plate processing technology, high precision, fast speed, smooth cut, generally no need for follow-up processing;Cutting heat affected area is small, plate deformation is small;High machining accuracy, good repeatability, no damage to the surface of the material.At present, the application of precision machining industry is increasing, PCB board cutting, microelectronic circuit template precision cutting, glasses industry, jewelry industry.

Laser precision machining has the following remarkable characteristics:

1.Wide range: laser precision machining of a wide range of objects, including almost all metal and non-metallic materials;

2.High precision: laser beams can be focused to very small sizes, making them particularly suitable for precision machining.In general, laser precision machining is superior to other traditional machining methods because of its low quality and high precision;

3.High speed and quick:Laser precision machining is simple to operate and convenient to adjust the width of cutting seam. So it can do  high speed carving and cutting according to the pattern output by computer.

4.Safe and reliable: laser precision machining is non-contact processing, which will not cause mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress on the material,So it can process very small parts

5.Low cost: it is not limited by the quantity of processing. For small batch processing service, laser processing is cheaper.For the processing of large products, the mold manufacturing cost of large products is very high, laser processing does not need any mold manufacturing, and laser processing completely avoids the edge collapse caused by material punching and shearing, which can greatly reduce the production cost of enterprises and improve the product grade.

6.Small cutting seam: the laser cutting slit generally 0.1-0.2mm.

7.Smooth cutting surface: laser cutting surface without burr.

8.Small thermal deformation: laser processing laser slit, fast speed, energy concentration. So the heat transferred to the cut material  and the deformation of the material is small.

9.Material saving: laser processing adopts computer programming. So it can  cut materials of products of different shapes to maximize the utilization rate of materials . And  it greatly reduce the material cost of enterprises.

Details of CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine.

Nowadays, more and more people majoring in wooden artware or other products making. With the technology developing so quickly, a lot of them choose CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine to finish their work.

In order to let you know more about CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine. Here share some details about with you.

What can the machine do?

CO2 Laser Engraving and Cutting Machine

CO2 Laser Engraving and Cutting Machine

CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine can cut and engrave wood, leather, pvc, acrylic, etc.

Is there any protection device for the machine?
Our machine has cover protection (when the front cover of the machine is opened, the laser will stop working), emergency stop switch (in an emergency, you can immediately press to cut off the power of the machine), cooling system protection (if the laser tube cooling system has a problem, the laser Will stop working), all doors on the machine can be locked with a key, which is more safe and secure

To amplify the power, can it be achieved by only using a high-power power supply or replacing a laser tube with a higher power?
No, it need to change the laser power supply and laser tube at the same time.

For example, a 60watt laser power supply can only support the work of a laser tube up to 60watts. If you only replace the 80watt laser power supply without replacing the corresponding laser tube, it will generate a certain current pressure on the 60w laser tube, which will affect the life of the laser tube. Make an impact. On the contrary, if you change to an 80watt laser tube without replacing the corresponding laser power supply, it may be impossible to drive the laser tube due to the low current. (In addition, if you replace a larger wattage laser power supply and laser tube, the chiller must be replaced with a larger model. It is also necessary to consider whether the laser tube box can fit a larger wattage laser tube.)

Descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.

                                                                                                   Descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.

 

Here are some descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.I would like to share with you some features and operation cost of the handheld fiber laser welding machine. It is easy to operate and the maintenance cost is also very low.

First of all,needn’t welding wire.

Compared with the traditional welding, like tig, it doesn’t need to use welding wire.Only when the gap more than 0.5mm, we should use the wire feeder.

Secondly,less quick-wear parts.

The quickly-wear parts for the  machine are only protective lens and copper nozzle.

What’s more,less electricity and gas.

Except the quick-wear parts, the machine also consume electricity and gas.
The power consumption of 1kw machine is 7.5kw/hour at full power situation. In fact, we usually just use 50%-60% power of 1000w to weld the metals.So the power consumption is small.The machine also need to connect with gas, argon or nitrogen.

The gas can isolate the air from the welding plate to prevent the reaction with the air. So the welding surface of the metal plate will be white and beautiful. The gas also can protect the lens from welding dust.

Tips:The price of the gas is different in different counties and regions. If our customers think the cost of the gas is too high,they can use air compressor to produce air gas. But the welding effect will not very good.The welding surface of the metal may be black.So our customers should wipe the surface of the metal with ethyl alcohol.

Last but not least,easy to maintenance.

The machine is very easy to matain.When finish your welding work, turn off the power and clean the welding head, it can make the lifetime of protective lens and copper nozzle longer.

 

That is all my descriptation.Hope it is helpful for you. If you have any confused of machine,please feel free contact us.
