What can the Laser Cleaning Machine Clean?

The laser cleaners use high frequency and high energy laser pulses to irradiate the surface of the workpiece. It instantly peels off oil stains, rust spots, or coatings on the surface. And it can remove adhesion and coatings from workpiece surfaces with high speed and efficiency. Therefore, it can clean objects. This cleaning method has the characteristics of no damage to the part matrix, no consumables, energy saving, and environmental protection. Therefore, people use it to achieve higher cleaning effects and lower overall costs.

The main driver for laser cleaning applications is the market demand for non-toxic, non-abrasive cleaning methods. People use this method to replace the previous chemical cleaning, manual cleaning, and abrasive jet cleaning.

Application of laser cleaning:

1.Surface polishing and rust removal in steel manufacturing 

When the metal is wet, it reacts with water to form a ferrous oxide, which causes rust. This rust can degrade the metal, making it unsuitable for many applications. High-power laser equipment can burn the rust, paint, and other sundries on the metal surface. Meanwhile, it makes use of the reflective property of metal to ensure that the parts themselves will not be damaged.

2.Cleaning the anode parts

The presence of dirt and other contaminants increases the resistance of the anode, causing more battery drain. In addition to this, the presence of contaminants also shortens the life of the anode by increasing the consumption rate during the smelting process. The laser cleaner can focus the laser on the material to remove the surface pollution. This method is both quick and effective.

3.Preparing for metal bonding

Before applying weld and other joining techniques, workers must prepare the surfaces of the metallic materials to be joined. This is for improved process stability, surface adhesion, and better weld quality. Joints and seams are prone to degradation if workers do not perform the necessary cleaning of metal surfaces. At present, people use advanced laser cleaning technology to pretreat the welded joint surface. This can remove oil stains and impurities on the surface and improve the welding speed.

4. Partial removal of coatings and paint

The laser cleaner can be used on almost all surface types, whether chemical anodizing, oxides or organic coatings. And in the automotive and other industries, laser cleaning removes coatings and paints while maintaining the integrity of the substrate.

Conclusion

The use of lasers for polishing, surface cleaning, and coating removal is rapidly expanding. Depending on the application, the user must precisely select the pulse frequency, energy, and wavelength of the laser. This allows for better cleaning, polishing, and ablation of the target material. At the same time, the user must take care to prevent any form of damage to the material during use. At present, people mainly use laser cleaning technology to clean small parts. Of course, the technology is also highly likely to be suitable for cleaning large surfaces and large equipment.

The above is the scope of use of the laser cleaning machine. Compared with traditional cleaning methods such as mechanical friction cleaning and chemical corrosion cleaning, laser cleaning has obvious benefits.
