What Should We Pay Attention To When Use CO2 Laser Cutting Machine ?

Laser cutting machine is a new technology machine that uses a laser to cut materials. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials would involve a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. Materials like stainless steel, Aluminum, Titanium and Plywood among others can be cut using laser. There are three types of laser in laser cutting mainly CO2, Nd and Nd-YAG.

If we do not pay attention while laser cutting then it may get cut in wrong way, may be: so while laser we should pay attention.

The use of laser cutting machine is more complex, and use of time will have certain danger, so must be will use; And each of the laser cutting machine use the matters needing attention are also different;all in all ,we should pay attention to following matters:

1,Material type: CO2 type of laser cutting machine can cut both metal and non metal while Fibre or Diode laser cutting machine cannot cut organics material such as wood, acrylic and paper.It is important to note to cutting material. Although the CNC laser cutting machine is good at cutting most of the material, but it cannot be used for cutting class acrylic or polycarbonate material, and can only be cut wood or fiber material in the field of limited application.

2,Fire: the machine might catch fire so you should never leave the machine unattended and preferably to have fire extinguisher nearby.

3,Focus: as laser can’t work efficiently when unfocused
Lens: laser cutting lens and mirrors get dirty overtime, and dirty lens is a lens waiting to crack. So clean it regularly.

4,Protect eyes:Light from the laser system is harmful to the eyes, so eye measures must be taken.

5,No nearly person:Machine in the processing of time don’t have a staff member nearby. Laser cutting principle is to use laser high temperature makes the metal surface gasification and melting quickly, anti high temperature equipment is a must. Some of more than ten thousand degrees temperature, metal impurities will splash out, to employees is a kind of damage.

6,Ventilation:The use of laser cutting machine must take all protective measures. And the position of the decoration should be ventilated machine. Conducive to heat dissipation.

The above all are what we should pay attention to when use CO2 laser cutting machine ,please check it and attention it .
