Surfaces made up of an iron compound are prone to rust, which affects their appearance and breeds many bacteria. They can appear on the surface of your car, garden furniture, bike, boat, precision machinery, or unkept iron sheets in your shed, which significantly hinders the lifespan and performance of parts and equipment. While traditional methods of rust removal and corrosion control involve blasting and lots of protective equipment, laser cleaning provides a better way forward.
How Laser Rust Removal Works
Laser cleaning, also known as laser ablation, uses a laser beam to remove impurities and contaminants from the surface of a material through irradiation. Such impurities may include unwanted insulation, paint, rubber coating, and rust.
Benefits Of Laser Rust Removal
1.Automated assembly line: The laser cleaning machine can be integrated with CNC machine tools or robots to implement remote control and cleaning, which can realize the automation of equipment, form a product assembly line operation, and intelligent operation.
2.Accurate positioning: the use of optical fiber to transmit and guide the laser to make it flexible, and the built-in scanning galvanometer to control the high-speed movement of the light spot, which is convenient for non-contacting of special-shaped parts, holes, grooves and other parts that are difficult to reach by traditional cleaning methods Ground laser cleaning treatment.
3.No damage: Short-term impact will not heat the metal surface and cause no damage to the substrate.
4.Good stability: The pulse laser used in the laser cleaning machine has a long service life, usually up to 100,000 hours, with stable quality and good reliability.
5.No environmental pollution: no chemical cleaning agent is needed, no cleaning waste liquid is generated, and the pollutant particles and gas generated during the laser cleaning process can be collected and purified by the portable exhaust fan to avoid environmental pollution.
6.Low maintenance cost: There is no consumption of consumables during the use of the laser cleaning machine, and the operating cost is low. Only the lens needs to be cleaned or replaced regularly in the later period. The maintenance cost is low and close to maintenance-free.
In the field of industrial applications, laser cleaning objects are divided into two parts: substrates and cleaning objects. The substrates mainly include surface contamination layers of various metals, semiconductor wafers, ceramics, magnetic materials, plastics, and optical components. The cleaning objects mainly include the extensive application requirements of rust removal, paint removal, oil removal, film/oxidation removal, and resin, glue, dust and slag removal in the industrial field.
