Does a laser cutting machine emit radiation?Is it harmful to human health?


Does a laser cutting machine emit radiation? Is it harmful to human health? You just need to know some basic knowledge about laser cutting machines. As we all know, there are great risks in the machining industry during operation. The mechanical noise, dust and powder generated during the machining process, as well as improper operation, can cause light or serious personal injury to operators. In order to avoid posing a threat to operators, the following suggestions are put forward to remind operators to carry out standardized operations.

During the machining process of the laser cutting machine, the characteristics of the emitted laser can concentrate energy highly in space and time. It forms an image on the retina by focusing through the refractive medium of the eye.

The energy density on the retina is 104-105 times higher than that on the cornea. The laser has good monochromaticity and small color difference in the fundus. When low laser energy is irradiated, the above characteristics cause damage to the cornea or retina.

To reduce the radiation of the laser cutting machine, it is necessary to use laser protective goggles, which are designed specifically for fiber laser cutting machine equipment and can effectively reduce the radiation of fiber laser cutting machines.

Therefore, workers do not need to worry about using it, and can confidently cut the workpiece. There are many types of laser protective goggles, including composite, absorption, reflection, and diffraction.

If you want to reduce the radiation of the laser cutting machine, workers can protect themselves, such as eating more foods that resist radiation, which can effectively resist the radiation of fiber laser cutting machines.

Generally, operators who have just come into contact with the laser cutting machine like to stare at the cutting head. If they stare at the sparks produced by the cutting for a long time, it will hurt their eyes and cause a tingling sensation. In general, some laser cutting machine manufacturers will provide corresponding eye protection glasses. Laser cutting machines have a high degree of intelligence and can be operated without human intervention, so there is no need to require operators to stare at the cutting head. Plasma cutting machines have a lot of dust, thick smoke, and strong light when cutting, and require a matching dust removal device. The laser cutting machine produces less dust and the light is not very strong. It has low noise and is also environmentally friendly.

The harm of smoke and dust is also easily overlooked by operators. The high temperature generated by the laser interacts with the processed materials to complete various processing while producing a large amount of steam and fog. When non-metallic materials are processed, the smoke generated contains a large number of chemical components, which will cause harm to the human body when discharged into the air. For garment accessories processing, button paint removal, wire paint removal processing, and paper processing, the harm is even more serious, and an exhaust system must be installed. At the same time, ensure ventilation in the work environment. It is also hoped that relevant practitioners will pay attention to their own health in a timely manner.
