What are the failures of laser cutting machine?

Laser cutting machine has become an indispensable tool for metal sheet processing enterprises. However, when using laser cutting machine for processing, we encounter some problems, like the large gap of steel plate and the reduced accuracy of the processed components.

A lot of heat will be generated, which may deform the surface of the thin plate and the processed workpiece.

The focus of the laser cutting machine and the surface of the processed object change, causing the large cutting gap or inaccurate processing.

An error will occur due to the incorrect position of the worktable. If the laser cutting machine is not installed firmly and the parts are worn for a long time, the worktable surface will be uneven. This imbalance will also cause problems between the thin steel plate and the laser focus, resulting in excessive cutting gaps or reduced processing accuracy.

What materials can be cut by laser cutting machine?

One of the biggest advantages of laser cutting machine is to cut a wide range of materials.

Laser cutting machine can cut all types of metals, ranging from mild steel to stainless and non-ferrous metals. More reflective metals like aluminum are more difficult to cut. The thickness of the metal can be up to 30mm. The maximum thickness depends on the laser cutting machine.

Different types of wood are suitable for cutting like plywood and MDF. However, be aware of oils or resin to avoid fire.

Paper and cardboard are also suitable for laser cutting machine, where the popular wedding invitations are made.

Plastics also leave a great finish when using laser cutting machine that the edges are melted in a polished way.

POM is a highly utilized plastic in the engineering sector, finding usage in gears, guiding and sliding elements, medical instruments, and food packaging. It can also be cut by laser cutting machine.

Cutting glass is a seemingly impossible task because of its fragile and reflective properties. However, laser cutting machine can engrave glass.

How to maintain laser cutting machine?

Replace the circulating water once a week. Make sure that the laser tube is filled with circulating water before the laser cutting machine works. It is recommended to use pure water and keep the water temperature below 35°C.

Long-term use of the fan will accumulate a lot of solid dust, making the fan generate a lot of noise and not conducive to exhaust and deodorization. Disassemble the air inlet and outlet pipes on the fan. Remove the dust inside. Turn the fan upside down and pull the inner blades until they are clean.

It is recommended to clean lens before laser cutting machine works every day. There are 3 mirrors and 1 focusing mirror on the machine. The lens are easily stained with dust or other contaminants, which can cause laser loss or damage to the lens. Just rotate to wipe from the center to the edge with the lens wiping paper.

After the motion system has been working for a period of time, the screws and couplings at the motion connection will loosen, which will affect the smoothness of the mechanical motion. Observe whether there are abnormal noises or phenomena in the transmission components.

It is recommended to check whether the optical path is normal before each work.
