Maintaining a CO2 laser machines is actually pretty easy and it’s recommended that you spend time every day to keep it maintained, clean and functioning, as it should. It’s very important that you add the following to your daily or weekly maintenance checklist:
- Laser working gas and cutting gas pressure, if the gas pressure is not enough, you should replace it.
- Buttons such as X-axis zero, Y-axis zero, Z-axis zero, laser-ready status. The X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis
- Chillers inside the circulating water level is sufficient, if not enough to be added in time.
- External light path of the road water leakage phenomenon.
- The lens.
If you spot any problems with any of these major parts, then you may want to call out an engineer to carry out repairs, but in most cases you should just need to carry out a ‘eye test’ and make sure everything is functioning as it should. If there are signs of wear then calling out an engineer to fit the correct replacement part is wise, and we recommend you do this early if you don’t want a problem later down the line to cause disruptions to your manufacturing line.
