How to maintain your laser engravers?
Some laser engravers have filters, charcoal, and dust collectors. After a week of use, you will need to replace any pre-filters and clean the laser engraver's dust collector. You'll know it's time for maintenance when you see smoke coming from the laser cabin, notice flames or sparks during cutting, smell more than usual, or see a dirty filter. If your laser cutter has charcoal to help deal with the fumes from the cutting process, especially plastic, then you will need to replace the charcoal every six to twelve months.
- Clean Laser Module
You need a clean cotton cloth and a bottle of alcohol, wipe the filter components, and laser nozzle clean and carefully, clean all of the dust off. The fan is also needed to be lightly cleaned. When you finish, assemble your laser module back together then fix it back to the machine's X-axis.
- Maintain accessories: Honeycomb Panel
1. Remove the honeycomb panel from the laser engraver machine.
2. Use compressed air to blow the surface of the honeycomb panel to remove any dust or debris.
3. Use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub the surface of the honeycomb panel. Be careful not to use a brush that is too hard or worn, as this could scratch the honeycomb panel.
4. If there are stubborn stains on the surface of the honeycomb panel, you can use a mixture of neutral cleaner and water to gently wipe the surface. Be careful not to use too much water or liquid, as this could affect the performance of the honeycomb panel.
5. After the honeycomb panel is dry, use compressed air again to blow the surface to ensure that it is clean and free of dust.
When cleaning, be sure to pay attention to safety and avoid using chemical cleaners or excessive force that could damage the honeycomb panel.
