Maintenance and cleaning for your laser cutting machine

While laser cutting machines can be a great investment for many businesses, helping with production timings and saving money, you must always take into consideration the maintenance a laser cutting machine requires.

Laser cutting machines will, like all machines require a general maintenance check every year and serviced every 6 months to one year. Cleaning your laser cutting machine is quite a simple process if done correctly. The daily cleaning shouldn’t take any longer than 15 minutes, and general cleaning once a week. The general cleaning includes clearing any debris, so depending on the materials used and the production amount will determine how often you will need to do a general clean. It is important to remember that the mirrors and lenses need cleaning but is a delicate process and should always be followed by a realignment of the machine, this shouldn’t take longer than an hour in total so shouldn’t interfere with production as it can all be done after work hours.
