Laser Cutting Machine Maintenance and Cleaning Tips

If the laser cutting equipment is not clean for a long time, the laser cutting equipment will stick the slag of the previously processed workpiece to the equipment, which will affect the working efficiency of the machine in the long run. In order to ensure the normal operation of the machine, improve work efficiency and extend the service life of the laser cutting machine, we need to clean and maintain the laser cutting machine. Guohong Laser will share with you some tips for cleaning and maintenance today.


1. Change the water tank frequently

Clean the water tank once a week and replace the circulating water once a week. It should be noted here: Before the machine works, make sure that the laser tube is filled with circulating water. It is recommended to use pure water, because the quality of the water and the temperature of the circulating water directly affect the life of the laser tube.

Steps to clean the water tank:
First, turn off the power, unplug the water inlet pipe, let the water in the laser tube automatically flow into the water tank, open the water tank, take out the water pump, and remove the dirt pump in the water. Clean the water tank, replace the circulating water, restore the water pump to the water tank, insert the water pipe connected to the water pump into the water inlet, and put all the gaskets. Turn on the water pump alone and run for 2-3 minutes (make the laser tube full of circulating water).

Clean the water tank and replace the circulating water once a week. The quality and temperature of the circulating water directly affect the life of the laser tube. It is recommended to use pure water, and the water temperature should be kept below 35°. If it exceeds 35°, the circulating water should be replaced or ice cubes should be added to lower the water temperature.


2. Clean the fan

If the fan is used for a long time, a large amount of solid dust will accumulate on the fan, causing the fan to produce a lot of noise, which is not conducive to exhaust and deodorization. When the fan suction is insufficient and the smoke exhaust is not smooth, turn off the power first, remove the air inlet pipe and the fan outlet pipe, remove the internal dust, then reverse the fan, pull the blades inward to clean the fan, and then reinstall the fan.

3. Clean the lens

The cutting machine has three mirrors and a focusing mirror. The laser is focused from the laser head and reflected by these lenses. The lens is easily contaminated by dust or other contaminants, which can cause laser loss or damage to the lens. There is no need to remove the lens during the cleaning process. Just immerse the lens in the cleaning solution, then gently wipe the paper from the center of the lens to the rotating edge, and put it back in place after cleaning.

The above is the maintenance and cleaning method of large-scale laser cutting equipment summarized by Guohong Laser for you. In order to ensure that our daily work can be carried out normally, work efficiency will not be delayed. We need to check and clean the machine regularly.
