When using the laser engraver for metal, the users must strictly follow the operation manual or instructions. And the operators shall also accept professional training and be qualified to operate the metal laser engraver. This is to avoid incorrect operations during use and increase the service life of the product. The following briefly gives some instructions on how to use the laser metal engraving machine.
1. Steps of starting and turning off machine must be correct
The sequence of starting the laser engraver for metal is as follows.
1) Turn on the general power and the key switch.
2) Wait for 5-10 seconds, press down the button on the control panel.
3) Turn on the power of the galvo scanning system.
4) Turn on the computer and open the engraving software.
5) Adjust the laser power to the working current to start engraving.
The sequence of turning off the machine is on the contrary.
2. Cooling system
The operators must start the cooling system before the laser is working. Because the fiber laser will produce a very high temperature when it is working. In addition, when the cooling water quickly flushes the laser tube, the impurities will inevitably be generated. And these impurities will accumulate on the laser tube and affect the cooling effect.
Therefore, it needs to replace the cooling water regularly. The faster the water flow rate, the better the cooling effect.
3. Ground protection
The laser power supply and the body of the metal engraving machine must have good ground protection.
This is to ensure the normal operation of the power supply and prolong the service life of the laser tube. Good ground protection can prevent the machine from jumping due to external interference. And it can also prevent accidental circuit damage caused by high voltage discharge.
4. Subjective operation not allowed
Do not operate subjectively when the users encounter something they don't understand. If anything puzzling, you can ask the technicians or refer to the instruction manual. The blind operation will cause faults and shorten the service life of the metal laser engraver.
5. Suitable temperature and humidity
Generally speaking, the range of working temperatures 5-35°C is more appropriate. If the temperature is too low, it is easy to freeze the cooling water in the laser tube. And if the temperature is too high, it is not good for cooling.
In addition, users need also to pay attention to the humidity in the workplace. If the environment is too humid, it will affect the electronic components and reduce the service life of the machine.
People operate the laser engraver for metal with a computer, and if you want to create a precise, high-speed engraver process, your computer must have an advanced laser engraver software. The laser engraver software receives your engraving files and make precise cutting route. Nowadays, you will have laser engraver software free, because most of laser engraver software is taken on the laser engraver.
