What is laser cleaning machine ?


In simple terms, the function of laser cleaning machine is very similar to other laser equipment. It uses laser energy to achieve high temperature through optical focusing to remove rust, paint, oil stains, welds, tires, etc. on the metal surface to achieve the effect of refurbishment.

 

Working principle of laser cleaning machine?

laser cleaning technology works by sending nanosecond-length pulses of laser light towards a surface. When it interacts with contaminants that absorb laser light, the contaminants or coating particles will either turn into a gas or the pressure of the interaction will cause particles to free from the surface.

Laser Cleaning Machine System

Lasers can provide high-speed cleaning and surface preparation in virtually all industries. The low-maintenance, easily automated process can be used to remove oil and grease, strip paint or coatings, or modify surface texture, for example adding roughness to increase adhesion.

 

No abrasive materials are used, with no problems of contaminant separation and disposal

No solvents are used - chemical-free and environmentally friendly process

Spatially selective –  cleaning only the area required, saving time and costs by ignoring regions that don’t matter

Non-contact process never degrades in quality

Easily automated process that can lower operating costs by eliminating labor while giving greater consistency in results.

 

 

Abrasive Blasting vs Fiber Laser Cleaning

 

While the cleaning is easy and effective, cost lies in the collection and disposal of the blast media, which often has to be separated from the paint debris, which has its

 

own treatment issues. Fiber lasers eliminate the blast media problem. They provide a more controlled process that does not accidentally damage a surface through

 

excessive removal, and can also be used on thin and composite materials that would be damaged by the particle impact. Fiber laser cleaning is always consistent,

 

independent of operator effects, and can scale to suit the job size by selection of the laser power.

 

Cold Jetting vs Fiber Laser Cleaning

 

Also known as dry ice blasting, cold jetting has similar characteristics to abrasive blasting, but without the problems of abrasive material recovery and disposal.

 

Fiber laser cleaning has little risk of operator hearing damage, has no special ventilation requirements, and is more easily controlled when dealing with small parts.

 

 

Chemical Cleaning vs Fiber Laser Cleaning


Good for cleaning surface contamination from a whole part, chemical cleaning is not easily applied to a selective area. Disposing of the chemicals is

 

an increasingly difficult and costly challenge due to regulatory controls. Fiber lasers can be applied selectively. With no chemicals to degrade, quality

 

is consistent, and there are no chemical solvent disposal issues. With no drying time, parts are available immediately.
