Necessary safety precautions when operating a laser cutting machine
Since the main working principle of the laser cutting machine is to rely on the laser, some necessary protective measures need to be taken during industrial operations to avoid unnecessary harm to the body. Let's take a look at the protective measures required for this laser cutting principle to work properly.
1. Pay attention to protect your eyes
Generally, when we use a laser cutting machine, we habitually like to stare at the cutting head of the laser all the time, but this habit is actually the biggest killer to the eyes, because if we stare at the sparks generated by cutting for a long time, it will Causes damage to eyes. Eyes are harmful. Obviously, it will make your eyes tingle if you look at it for a long time. This is the most direct damage. At the same time, when the laser is cutting, it will also emit a special laser substance. , this substance is highly concentrated in the processing workshop, and directly focuses on the retina to form an image through the refractive medium of the eye, which will make the energy density on the retina 104 higher than that on the cornea, so it will damage the cornea or retina.
2. Skin protection
In addition to eyes, lasers are also very irritating to the skin. Lasers can cause damage to skin tissue, but damaged skin can repair itself. Although the overall function of the skin will decrease, it will not affect the overall function. However, if you do not pay attention to long-term exposure to laser light, it will cause skin burns or leave scars. Although laser damage to the skin is much less than that of the eyes, it still needs to be taken seriously.
3. Respiratory protection
Finally, when operating a laser cutting machine, it may affect our respiratory tract. Because the laser will generate a certain high temperature, this high temperature can be combined with the gas to complete various cutting work, and a large amount of dust will be generated in this process, especially when processing some special metal materials, the generated dust will contain a variety of Chemical composition, harmful to human body after inhalation.
