After using the expensive chemicals, the user has to make sure the surface is properly neutralized and the fluids have to be disposed afterward to not risk white contamination. Let's not forget the mess you're leaving behind and the unpleasant smell!
Cleaning the weld seam with laser eliminates these problems completely! The system is
Non-contact, thus no wear
Non-abrasive, no material damage at all
No media needed, using only energy means the laser operates at extreme low operating cost,~1$/hr
No residue, an aspiration systems collects the dust, leaving the working area completely clean and fresh!
Not only manual
In contrast with some other techniques, laser cleaning is extremely suitable for integration in your production line.
By it's parametric nature, the settings can be optimized for automatic cleaning. Obtain the same result, every day, the whole year through!
a nightmare for most operators! This material requires great care, using chemicals may do more wrong rather than good. Also in this field, laser cleaning is a suitable alternative or a valuable addition for the small corners which grinders can't reach!
