What is Laser Cleaning？
In the 1960s, lasers were invented. In the 1980s, laser cleaning technology began to appear. In the past forty years, laser cleaning technology has developed rapidly. In today’s industrial production and materials science fields, laser cleaning technology is even more indispensable.
The principle of laser cleaning is to use high-frequency and high-energy laser pulses to irradiate the surface of the work piece. The coating layer can instantly absorb the focused laser energy, causing the oil stains, rust spots or coatings on the surface to instantly evaporate or peel off, and effectively remove surface attachments or coatings at high speed. The surface coating is cleaned in a way that the very short laser pulses, under appropriate parameters, will not harm the metal substrate.
What are the advantages of LME Laser laser cleaning technology?
Laser cleaning is a “green” cleaning method that does not require the use of any chemicals or cleaning fluids. The cleaned waste materials are basically solid powder, small in size, easy to store, recyclable, no photochemical reaction, and will not produce pollution. . It can easily solve the environmental pollution problem caused by chemical cleaning. Often an exhaust fan can solve the problem of waste generated by cleaning.
Traditional cleaning methods are often contact cleaning, which exerts mechanical force on the surface of the object to be cleaned, damaging the surface of the object or the cleaning medium adheres to the surface of the object to be cleaned and cannot be removed, resulting in secondary pollution. Laser cleaning is non-abrasive and non-abrasive. Contact and no thermal effects will not damage the substrate, so these problems can be easily solved.
Laser can be transmitted through optical fibers and cooperated with robot hands and robots to facilitate long-distance operations and clean parts that are difficult to reach with traditional methods. This can ensure the safety of personnel when used in some dangerous places.
Laser cleaning can remove various types of contaminants from the surface of various materials, achieving a level of cleanliness that conventional cleaning cannot achieve. It can also selectively clean contaminants on the material surface without damaging the material surface.
Laser cleaning is fast, efficient and saves time. Although the initial one-time investment in purchasing a laser cleaning system is high, the cleaning system can be used stably for a long time, has low operating costs, and more importantly, can easily realize automated operations. Cost calculation: A single machine with a cleaning efficiency of 8 square meters per hour has an operating cost of about 5 kilowatt hours of electricity per hour, that is, the cleaning cost is 4 cents per square meter. Excluding the initial cost, the later period will be 4 cents per square meter.
The above is the continuous laser cleaning machine recommended by LME Laser. It has a blue and white cabinet appearance, and other colors can also be customized.Compared with traditional mechanical, chemical corrosion, strong impact and other cleaning methods, the laser cleaning technology of LME laser cleaning machine has the advantages of more efficiency, speed and low cost.Not only will it not cause any form of damage to the base material, but in today’s era when the whole world pays attention to environmental protection, the use of laser cleaning machine equipment will not cause pollution to our environment, and will not cause harm to the operator’s body. The future is a major trend in industrial cleaning.
