The users shall maintain the CO2 laser engraving machines regularly. Therefore, it can increase the service life, save costs, and create greater benefits.
1. Cleaning of the outer surface
After the laser engraving machine completes the processing every time, the users must clean the environment at first. It needs to clean the ground and the laser machine. The parts for cleaning include the outside surface of the control cabinet, the cover of the laser system, and the working table.
2. Maintenance of the cooling water system
For the maintenance of the cooling water system, it needs to regularly check the temperature and volume of the cooling water. The users need to replace the water if its temperature is too high. And they must add new water if the volume is not enough. This system can use either the soft water or the distilled water.
It also needs to check whether there is any leakage at the joint of each water pipe. If yes, tighten such a place to avoid leakage. The users shall check the rubber gaskets carefully. If the gaskets do not work anymore, it needs to replace it with a new one.
3. Cleaning of the optical system
The inside optical devices belong to the design of the enclosed type, and need not cleaning generally. If necessary, the users can clean the lens according to the following methods.
Use the paper specially for cleaning the camera lens to soak a little ethyl alcohol. And then, wipe up the optical lens.
It needs to pay great attention during the process of wiping up. And it shall not clean vigorously, in order to avoid damaging the surface of the optical elements.
4. Regular maintenance of the driving belts
There are several synchronous belts in the driving system of the CO2 laser engraving machine. If the belts re too tight or too loose, it will affect the working quality of the machine. Therefore, after a period of use, it needs to adjust the tension screw of the belts. It is forbidden to use edible oil when applying lubricating oil to the track. Industrial lubricating oil is required.
While using the CO2 laser engraving machine, the users need to pay attention to many things, especially some wearing parts. We must maintain the parts with care, including the use of special cleaning agents. This is to make our operation become easier and produce our products with higher precision. Therefore, we must also maintain the laser machine carefully.
