Sending gas to the resonator basically maintenance free, unless you leave a hose or a leak. Sometimes leaks can go unnoticed, but the operator of the machine will see a difference in the output power of the machine or the use of gas.
Here is a good guideline for manufacturers: every time the gas cylinder. This immediately tells the manufacturer if there is a leak. So it can avoid significant losses in productivity.
Most laser machines up to three separate cylinders used to feed the appropriate combination of gas to a cutting work, and as a result, it requires a mixer. However, advanced resonator designs on the market are much simpler, requiring only a premixed gas cylinder. These designs also require less gas consumption during cutting.
The laser cutting machine manufacturers are now making it easier for manufacturers to practice a healthy maintenance. For example, a driver on the team latest laser cutting has a maintenance regimen that makes sense for your production schedule. The controller also stores notes, dates and historical data for quick reference if maintenance issues arise in the future.
Those metal fabricators who can’t qualify your preventive maintenance effort as a good practice have another option: most manufacturers offer laser cutting equipment preventive maintenance contracts. These concerns eventually eliminate and reduce overall maintenance costs and unplanned downtime of the machine. With quotes from pre-programmed maintenance, equipment manufacturer's service team can make a comprehensive inspection on the laser machine to keep it operating at peak performance
