Laser cutting machines are precision equipment that require regular maintenance to ensure their proper functioning and to extend their service life. The frequency of maintenance depends on various factors, such as the type of machine, the intensity of use, and the manufacturer's recommendations. In this article, we will discuss the recommended maintenance schedule for laser cutting machines and the importance of each maintenance activity.

Daily Maintenance

Daily maintenance is crucial for the smooth operation of a laser cutting machine. It should be performed every day before starting the machine and after finishing the work. The following are the key aspects of daily maintenance:

1. Checking the laser generator: Before starting the machine, carefully check the pressure of the working gas and cutting gas in the laser generator. If the gas pressure is insufficient, replace it immediately. Also, check if the cooling water pressure is maintained between 3.5 and 5 bar and if the water temperature meets the requirements of the laser generator.

2. Checking the vacuum pump and roots pump: During daily maintenance, check the oil level of the vacuum pump and roots pump. If the level is low, add oil as needed.

3. Cleaning the mirrors: After each work session, promptly clean the cutting waste, sweep the work area, and clean the equipment to ensure that all parts are clean and free of contamination.

4. Shutting off the gas and power supply: At the end of each day, shut off the gas and power supply and empty the residual gas in the machine's hoses.

Periodic Maintenance

In addition to daily maintenance, laser cutting machines require periodic in-depth maintenance. The following are some recommended periodic maintenance activities:

1. Weekly maintenance: Every week, perform a comprehensive cleaning, including washing the longitudinal and transverse guide rails and transmission gear racks, and adding lubricating oil. Also, check if the longitudinal and transverse rail wipers are working properly, if all torches are loose, and clean the debris from the ignition gun nozzle.

2. Semi-annual maintenance: Laser cutting machines should undergo laser maintenance every 2000 operating hours or every six months. This includes checking if the cooling water pipes of the laser head are corroded, if the excitation power supply's oil tank is leaking, if the high-voltage cables are damaged, and cleaning the inside of the laser resonator and all lenses.

3. Monthly and quarterly maintenance: Some specific maintenance activities should be performed every month and every quarter, such as checking if there is any debris in the main air inlet, if all valves and pressure gauges are working properly, if the air hose connectors are loose, and if any hoses are damaged.

Special Maintenance

In some special circumstances, additional maintenance activities may be required:

1. Replacing the circulating water: The quality and temperature of the circulating water directly affect the service life of the laser tube. It is recommended to use pure water and keep the water temperature below 35℃. If the temperature exceeds 35℃, the circulating water should be replaced.

2. Cleaning the water tank: It is recommended to clean the water tank and replace the circulating water once a week. When cleaning the water tank, turn off the power, unplug the water inlet pipe, let the water in the laser tube automatically flow into the water tank, then clean the water tank and replace the circulating water.

By performing these maintenance activities, the normal operation of the laser cutting machine can be ensured, and its service life can be extended. However, it is important to note that the specific maintenance frequency and content may vary depending on the equipment type and manufacturer. Therefore, it is advisable to refer to the equipment manual or consult with professionals.
