After buying a laser welding machine, many customers have questions about how to set up welding machine step by step. This article will tell you.
Only three parts are needed:
- Check before starting;
- To see if there is a “condensation” phenomenon;
- Check the output spot.;
- Check the purity of the cooling water.
Set up laser welding machine
Choose appropriate welding parameters
When using a laser welding machine, it is necessary to select appropriate welding parameters according to different welding materials and welding requirements. Generally speaking, the welding parameters of laser welding machines include laser power, welding speed, welding depth, laser beam diameter, etc. Operators need to make adjustments according to actual conditions to ensure welding quality and efficiency.
Calibrating laser welding machines
Before using the laser welding machine, the laser welding machine needs to be calibrated to ensure the accuracy and stability of the laser beam. The calibration process includes adjusting the laser beam diameter, adjusting the laser beam position and direction, etc.
Keep your laser welding machine clean
The lenses, optical fibers and other components of laser welding machines are easily affected by contaminants such as dust and oil, which affects the quality and stability of the laser beam. , Before using the laser welding machine, the laser welding machine needs to be cleaned to ensure the quality and stability of the laser beam.
How to Set up Welding Machine Step by Step
- Set the welding parameters of the laser welding machine and adjust them according to the actual situation.
- Calibrate the laser welding machine to ensure the accuracy and stability of the laser beam.
- Before using the laser welding machine, clean the laser welding machine to ensure the quality and stability of the laser beam.
- Follow the operating instructions of the laser welding machine and avoid excessive use.
- Pay attention to the temperature of the laser welding machine and avoid overheating.
- Select appropriate welding materials, control the welding process, and ensure welding quality and efficiency.
Avoid laser welding machine failures
Avoid Overuse of Laser Welding Machines
The service life of the laser welding machine is limited, and excessive use will cause the failure of the laser welding machine. When using a laser welding machine, you need to follow the instruction manual of the laser welding machine to avoid overuse.
Avoid overheating of laser welding machine
Overheating of the laser welding machine will affect the quality and stability of the laser beam, and even cause the failure of the laser welding machine. When using a laser welding machine, you need to pay attention to the temperature of the laser welding machine to avoid overheating.
Check before starting
In order to ensure that the laser welding machine is always in normal working condition, after two weeks of continuous work or when it is not used for a period of time, the components in the optical path such as YAG rod, dielectric film, and lens protection glass should be checked first before starting to determine the optical components. There are no abnormal phenomena such as dust pollution and mildew. If there are any such phenomena, they should be dealt with in time to ensure that the optical components will not be damaged under strong laser irradiation.
To see if there is a “condensation” phenomenon
In high temperature or humid environment, the laser welding machine should always pay attention to observe whether there is “condensation” caused by low water temperature on the cooling water circulating pipe or laser concentrating cavity. The occurrence of “condensation” will cause damage to the end face of the YAG crystal, resulting in a decrease in output power and even failure to emit light. Be careful during use.
Check the output spot
The operator can often check the output spot of the laser welding machine with black photo paper. Once spot unevenness or energy drop is found, the resonant cavity should be adjusted in time to ensure the beam quality of the laser output.
Check the purity of the cooling water
The purity of the cooling water is the key to ensuring the laser output efficiency of the welding torch and the life of the laser concentrating cavity components. During use, the conductivity of the internal circulating water should be checked once a week, and the internal circulating deionized water must be replaced once a month.
Always pay attention to the color change of the ion exchange column in the cooling system Once the color of the resin in the exchange column has changed to dark brown or even black, the resin should be replaced immediately.
The operation of any machine makes perfect. When we use the laser welding tools and equipment, as long as we have a good grasp of the matters that should be paid attention to in the use process, I believe everyone can use the laser welding machine more quickly and put it into work better.
