                                                                  As a new technological method in recent years, the CNC laser machine can irradiate a beam with a high energy density to the workpiece to be processed, so that it is locally heated and melted, and then use high-pressure gas to blow off the slag to cut shapes & profiles or engrave texts & patterns.

                                                                  1. Narrow kerf, high precision, good kerf roughness, no need for further processing after cutting.

                                                                  2. It has a high degree of automation, can be completely enclosed for processing, has no pollution, and has low noise, which greatly improves the working environment of the operator.

                                                                  3. The processing cost is low. The one-time investment in equipment is more expensive, but continuous and large-scale processing will eventually reduce the processing cost of each part.

                                                                  4. It is non-contact processing, with low inertia and fast processing speed. It is time-saving and convenient, and the overall efficiency is high with the CAD/CAM software programming of the CNC system.

                                                                  5. The high energy density is enough to melt any metal, and it is especially suitable for processing some materials that are difficult to process with high hardness, high brittleness, and high melting point.

                                                                  6. The action time is short, the heat affected zone is small, the thermal deformation is small, and the thermal stress is small. In addition, it is non-mechanical contact processing, which has no mechanical stress on the workpiece and is suitable for precision processing.

                                                                  7. The CNC laser system itself is a set of computer systems, which can be conveniently arranged and modified, and is suitable for personalized processing, especially for some sheet metal parts with complex contours and shapes. The batches are large and the batches are not large, and the product life cycle is not long. From the perspective of technology, economic cost and time, manufacturing molds is not cost-effective, and engraving & cutting is particularly advantageous.

                                                                  The CNC laser machine is not a consumer product. It is a weapon to help you make money.

                                                                  • Because the electricity inside the laser may not be completely discharged, it is easy to cause harm to people.  

                                                                  Laser Safety

                                                                  Laser is invisible light with high power density, which is easy to cause burns and radiation to the human body. When using it, do not stand in the path of the light to avoid being burned. Do not stare directly at the laser to avoid being burned. It is best to wear protective glasses for work.

                                                                  Focusing Lenses Precautions

                                                                  Pay attention to the cleaning of the focusing lens and clean it frequently. It needs to be adjusted once a month if the optical path is found to be off, and the equipment should be maintained regularly according to the maintenance requirements in the operation manual to keep the equipment in the best condition.

                                                                  Cold Dryer Precautions

                                                                  1. The indoor temperature cannot exceed 35 degrees.

                                                                  2. Discharge sewage every day.

                                                                  3. Clean the vents once a week (just blow with an air gun).  

                                                                  4. Clean the filter monthly (soft brush   soapy water).

                                                                  Maintenance & Troubleshooting

                                                                  Machine Tool Daily Maintenance

                                                                  1. The external optical path is checked once a month to two months. If the copper mirror is found to be polluted, it needs to be cleaned in time (cleaning as required). After cleaning, the external optical path needs to be re-adjusted. Once adjusted, don't move it easily.

                                                                  2. The screw and linear guide need to be lubricated and maintained every half a month to a month.  

                                                                  3. The entire machine table surface needs to be cleaned once a week.  

                                                                  4. Clean the dust on the radiator of the chiller once a week (blow the radiator up and down with air). 5. Check the water level in the water exchanger once a month and replenish the water (note that the water inside should be as clean as possible).  

                                                                  6. Check the filter of the cold dryer once every 2-3 months and clean the filter element once (alcohol). Do not wash it too hard. If there is oil stain, clean it with gasoline. If it is damaged, it needs to be replaced.  

                                                                  7. The guide rails of the workbench and the lift table are cleaned once a month.  

                                                                  8. The chiller is inspected once a month. If the water level is insufficient, replenish water. The pure water is replaced every 2 months, and the distilled water is replaced once every 6 months. If the water quality is not good during the inspection, replace it immediately.  

                                                                  It is recommended to use telephoto lens cutting for carbon steel over 9.6mm and stainless steel over 5mm, which is easy to protect the lens.

                                                                  10. Remember to clean the lens after cutting stainless steel, wood, rubber, plexiglass, and quartz.

                                                                  11. Due to the high temperature in summer, if the CNC laser machine works for a long time, the Z-axis and the Z-axis box may be slightly heated, which is normal. But if the temperature is high or even hot, it is not normal. It is recommended to start checking from the following aspects:

                                                                  • Check whether the switch of the control external light path on the chiller is turned on.  

                                                                  • Whether the optical path of the Z axis is positive.  

                                                                  • Is the surface of the focusing lens badly damaged (many spots on the surface).  

                                                                  • Whether the Z axis is vertical.     

                                                                  • Whether the two copper mirrors at the proximal end of the Y axis are clean. Any of the above situations will cause the Z-axis and the Z-axis box to heat up, so you should pay more attention to it in the future.

                                                                  12. After changing the mixed gas, tighten the valves of the mixed gas, and then gently close the lid.  

                                                                  13. Pay attention to the standard operation. When raising the head (RETRACT) to execute cycle cutting (CYCLE START) and lowering the head (SET TO CUT) to execute cycle cutting (CYCLE START), you must pay attention to the display in the program, and do not move quickly when the cutting head is lowered. (It is easy to crash the cutting head in this way).  

                                                                  15. Frequent blasting will occur in the following situations (frequent blasting will damage the lens). 

                                                                  • Due to the unstable working voltage or other reasons, the pulses emitted by the laser are sometimes unstable.  

                                                                  • The light is biased.  

                                                                  • Piercing parameters are not reasonable.  

                                                                  16. Every once in a while, use a cotton swab or absorbent cotton to dip some acetone to clean the inside of the Z-axis.

                                                                  CNC Laser Daily Maintenance

                                                                  In order for the CNC laser machine to have and maintain good working performance, it is necessary to provide it with good working conditions, that is, to meet its requirements mainly in terms of water, gas and electricity.

                                                                  The main function of cooling water is to take away the heat generated during operation and prevent it from working at high temperature. The chiller uses distilled water to take away the heat in the electrical cabinet and resonance cavity through cooling and water circulation, so that the machine can work normally. The water temperature of the cooling water should be kept at 20 degrees. Since the water passes through the pipeline of the chiller and the copper plate in the resonance cavity, it is required that the pH and conductivity of the water meet the requirements, otherwise the laser will be damaged if used for a long time. In order to avoid this situation, anticorrosion inhibitors need to be added to the water, and the conductivity of the water should be measured regularly to ensure that the water quality meets the requirements. The RF generator is cooled with deionized water, and a deionized agent is also required to ensure that the conductivity meets the requirements.  

                                                                  The working gas is divided into two types, one is the mixed gas that provides the medium for the resonator, and the other is high-purity nitrogen. The purity of high-purity nitrogen must reach more than 99.99%, otherwise it will pollute and cause damage to the lens in the inner optical path. Pay attention to the quality of the gas, otherwise the laser will be easily damaged.

                                                                  Air Compressors Maintenance

                                                                  • Check the oil level (at the 3/4 position) every day before starting up, and drain the waste water after stopping.  

                                                                  • Clean the cooling nets on both sides (just blow with an air gun) and the air filter every week.

                                                                  • Clean oil cooler   air cooler every 1000 hours.

                                                                  • Check the belt tension every 1000 hours to adjust.

                                                                  • Replace air filter  oil filter  compressor oil every 4000 hours.

                                                                  • Do not exceed 110 degrees when the machine is running (80~90 degrees when working).

                                                                  • The number of motor starts must not exceed 20 per hour.

                                                                  • Do not use the emergency stop for non-emergency situations.

                                                                  • The fan blades run counterclockwise, indicating that the wires are not reversed.  

                                                                  Safety and Security  

                                                                  Fire Protection

                                                                  Oxygen is needed for the operation of the CNC laser machine, so smoking should be prohibited in the area around the machine, especially near the oxygen cylinder, to prevent hidden dangers and unnecessary damage. (If conditions permit, fire extinguishers should be provided next to the equipment)  

                                                                  Laser Protection

                                                                  When hitting the center, one must pay attention to make sure the person's hand is away first, turn off the height control (turn off the CLC) and then light. When adjusting the external light path, it must be ensured that no one is standing in the light path range. The operator should also pay attention to ensure that the light will not hit people before lighting. The lighting power and time should be controlled to a reasonable range (the central power is generally 200 between 0.01 and 0.02S. When adjusting the external optical path, the light output power is generally controlled at about 300W, and the light output time is controlled between 0.2 and 0.5S). After the external optical path is adjusted, all protective covers must be installed before cutting. When exchanging air, remove the high voltage first, and close the door immediately after exchanging air. Do not open the door of the electrical cabinet casually, and do not touch the circuits and electronic components inside.


                                                                  The era of intelligence will come in all respects. Whether it is Germany's Industry 4.0 or China's smart manufacturing, the fourth industrial revolution in the industrial field is quietly coming. As a high-precision laser CNC machine, the laser CNC cutting machine or laser CNC engraving machine is bound to keep pace with the times and fly with technology. The development of laser CNC automation has greatly improved the production capacity and automation level of the workshop.

                                                                  In the future, on this basis, an era of laser CNC engraving & cutting machines combined with intelligent manufacturing is brewing deeply in the fields of network technology, communication technology, and computer software technology. As an intelligent manufacturing pilot demonstration unit, STYLECNC is relying on its own system technology integration capabilities, focusing on the future development direction and technological commanding heights, and joining strategic partners to build a fully intelligent laser CNC machining factory and create a new situation for intelligent laser CNC engraver and laser CNC cutter.
