CO2 and fiber lasers are different than one another and have slightly different maintenance needs; however, these general tips should be noted regardless of which system type you use:

  • Use a fume extractor. Not only does this help operators avoid breathing in potentially dangerous fumes, but it also helps keep mirrors, lenses, and the overall work piece cleaner.
  • Keep your exit lens clean, and your fans free of dust buildup.
  • For CO2 laser systems, keep your mirrors and lenses clean.
  • Keep your belts clean, and replace when they start to get worn out.
