For the laser cutting machine to work properly, daily, weekly and annual maintenance must perform. Next we will describe the tasks to be carried out for the daily maintenance of a laser cutting machine, in order to reduce unnecessary laser cutting machine stops and reduce costs for deterioration of materials from leaks, improper work, etc….
A general cleaning of the machine must carry out on the laser cutting machine, external damage control on the laser cutting machine, emptying the car and checking for ducts and leaks.
Regarding the head of the laser cutting machine, check the state of the nozzle and replace if necessary, check the condition of the cutting head, check if the lens is dirty and clean / replace if necessary, and perform a general cleaning of the Cutting head.
The table changing system needs a pressure control with the pressure gauge, and an oil level control, where it can refill if necessary. Finally, to the refrigerator of the laser cutting machine check the condition of the air filter and general condition.
Regarding the laser cutting machine, first of all perform a check of the oil filling of the centralized greasing system.
When changing tables, clean and grease the guide. Then check the condition of the chain and the traction pin. And finally, with the table changing system, clean the wheels and change the tables.
One of the tasks to be performed on the cutting head is to check and replace, if necessary, the lower protection window. Clean the outside of the head. Check the gas, compressed air and water connections, all connections must be correct and tight. Check the cable connections and make sure they are connected correctly and firmly. Finally, check the correct connection of the laser cable.
To finish the weekly maintenance to the laser cutting machine, you have to perform some last tasks to the refrigerator. First check the irregularities of the mechanical components. Listen to some abnormal noise. Check the water level, temperature and pressure displays, conductivity, filling of coolant in the sight glass, and pipes to prevent leaks. Finally, and to finish with the weekly maintenance of the laser cutting machine, check the condition of the water filter, if the pressure drop is greater than 1.5 bar, change the filter element.
Regarding the laser cutting machine, first of all perform a complete cleaning of the installation. Perform a check of the deterioration of the bellows seals at 500 hours of service. Check the level of the greasing dispensers. Cleaning X, Y every 1000 hours of service, cleaning the car X, Y, Z, every 1000 hours of service, cleaning and greasing of the protection door guides and checking the distance between the anchor points of the table.
When changing tables, a check of the fittings, ducts and transmission hoses must carry out. Hydraulic oil change at 2000-3000 service hours. Cleaning and greasing the sprockets every 1000 hours of service. Checking the oil in the gearboxes and changing them at 3000 operating hours or if necessary. Checking the tightness of the hydraulic cylinder of the equipment. Cleaning and greasing of the change of tables and the guides of the elevator of the change of tables.
The task for the cutting head is to make a change of the optical components and a general overhaul.
To finish the annual maintenance to the laser cutting machine, you have to perform some last tasks to the refrigerator. Change the filter element and fill the circuit with water of the necessary quality, the appropriate glycol concentration and all the Refrifluid B additive supplied with the cooler, 2 liters per 100 liters of water tank volume.
