The guide rail, straight axis play a guiding and supporting role as one of the core components of the equipment. In order to guarantee the machine has high machining accuracy, the guide rail, straight axis must have higher guidance precision and good motion stability. In the process of running, the work piece will produce a large number of corrosive dust and smoke in processing. On the basis of these smoke and dust deposit on the surface of the guide rail, straight axis for a long time, and have a great influence on the machining accuracy of the equipment. Furthermore it will form corrosion spot in the surface of the guide rail and straight axis, and shorten the service life of the equipment. In order to make the machine work normally and steadily, and ensure the processing quality of the products, the daily maintenance of the guide rail and the straight axis should be done carefully. It is important to note that clean guide rail need dry cotton cloth and lubricating oil.
The guide rail of the engraving machine is divided into linear guide rail and roller guide rail. Cleaning of the linear guide rail: Firstly, move the laser head to the right (or left), find the linear guide, wipe it with a dry cotton cloth until it become bright and clean, then plus a little lubricating oil (sewing machine oil is optional, do not use the motor oil), push the laser head around slowly for several times, let the oil be evenly distributed. Cleaning of the roller guide rail: Move the beam to the inner side, open the machine cover on both sides, find the roller guide, wipe the contact place of the guide rail and wheel on both sides with a dry cloth, then move the beam, and clean the rest place.
