How to Take Care of Your Laser Cutter Machine
If you have recently bought a laser cutter machine, you might not know how to take care of it. But buying a new machine is not as easy as running it for a few hours. As an owner of a laser cutter, you have to know how to keep your machine in good working condition for as long as possible. There are a few things that you should do.
First, when you are going to use your machine, you should use it as you are suppose to. Do not run it until it breaks down and then ignore it. Before you buy a machine, make sure that you know how to use it.
Then, the second thing that you need to do is make sure that the area where you are working is a safe place. You should not use any moving parts of the machine while it is on. This means that you should not throw the parts or leave them lying around.
Another important thing that you need to do is to remove any objects like ladders, tubes or other moving parts that could hurt you or the machine. Never put anything sharp or dangerous on the machine.
The third thing that you need to know about laser cutting is that it needs to be cleaned. Your machine will usually have dust, dirt and some oil on it. You should always use a cloth to clean the machine.
When you are doing this, you have to make sure that you are putting the machine in a place where it will not be moved. For safety reasons, you should never run the machine when it is on.
After this is done, you need to go on with the cleaning of the laser cutter. But make sure that you clean it thoroughly and not just throw it in the garbage. Then, you need to take the blade off the machine. The blade can break if you are not careful. Make sure that you take the blade off before it gets wet.
Then, you need to take out the ink cartridge from the machine. You need to dry the ink cartridge with the help of paper or cloth.
Then, you need to put a cloth into the ink cartridge and then re-insert the cartridge into the machine. Make sure that the cloth is dry.
After that, you need to put some oil onto the parts that could get damaged by moisture. For example, you should put some oil onto the motor parts.
Then, you need to tighten the screws of the machine. Make sure that you do not put the screws too tight.
