In the field of industrial manufacturing, production safety has always been a task that enterprises attach great importance to. In addition to general accidental injuries, fire protection is a key issue in production safety. We have seen many incidents in the news about heavy losses and casualties in workshops caused by fires, some of which were caused by illegal electric welding operations. Why does electric welding cause a fire? Is there a safer welding method in workshop production?
The safety of traditional electric welding process is low
Metal welding has always been a very common processing method in the field of industrial manufacturing. Among them, the traditional welding processes that are widely used include argon arc welding, resistance spot welding, soldering iron welding and other welding methods. These welding processes mainly use heat sources converted from electric power to achieve high-temperature welding, and the cost is relatively low, but there are many safety hazards.
Electric welding is welding after melting the metal through an arc, so the temperature will be very high during the welding process, and the process will be accompanied by high-temperature welding slag or sparks. If these objects fall on the surface of combustibles, such as flying catkins, cotton fabrics, wood, chemicals, etc., it is very easy to cause a fire or even directly detonate. Therefore, it is necessary to have a good working environment during the welding process, and welders need to be trained and use formal welding procedures to work. In addition to the traditional welding processes we have introduced, metal welding can also adopt a safer method, namely laser welding
Laser welding machines offer a safer way to weld
Laser welding is an efficient and precise metal welding method. It is a process in which the heat energy transformed by the high-energy beam is radiated to the workpiece, and the material is instantly melted and bonded to achieve welding. Compared with the traditional welding process, laser welding also uses high energy to complete the welding process. However, the difference is that the laser welding machine provides a more advanced and intelligent metal welding method. Since laser welding often uses shielding gas or air blowing, the welding slag can be blown away and cooled quickly during the metal welding process, which can avoid the hidden danger of welding slag and sparks splashing and igniting. Moreover, the sparks during laser welding are the reflected light of the laser, which disappear quickly and are not easy to ignite objects.
The handheld laser welding machine
is easy to operate, fast in welding speed, low in maintenance cost, and does not require welding consumables, so the operating cost of the whole machine is very low. In order to achieve a safer effect, laser welding guns are equipped with safety locks, safety indicator lights and other functions. The user presses the switch to emit light when the safety lock is activated. Therefore, you don't have to worry about the uncontrolled laser will cause harm to the staff.
Fiber laser welding machine is simpler and easier to operate
Traditional welding methods require operators to wear heavy protective clothing and barrier masks, mainly to deal with the dust and fume environment formed by welding. These harmful objects have potential risks to the skin and even the lungs. Moreover, traditional welding equipment is relatively heavy, and it is easy to cause fatigue and reduce welding accuracy when the manual operation takes a long time.
The fiber laser welding machine adopts a portable hand-held laser welding gun, which is ergonomically designed to reduce the fatigue of long-term work. Moreover, the metal fume and dust pollution of laser welding is less, and it can be equipped with a dust removal and purification device to achieve clean welding. Welders only need to wear laser protective glasses, and do not need to wear heavy protective equipment, and the operation is simpler and more convenient.
The handheld laser welding machine gets rid of the limitation of traditional laser equipment on the workplace. The machine can be moved flexibly according to the needs of the work, realizing the possibility of on-site processing anywhere. At present, ACCTEK provides users with 1000W/1500W/2000W/3000W laser welding machines. These industrial laser welding equipment are welcomed by the market and quickly enter various industries such as hardware tools, door and window guardrails, stainless steel kitchen utensils, furniture, home appliances, and automobile manufacturing, successfully replaced part of the traditional welding equipment.
Although laser welding machines are a safer way of metal welding, users still need to learn safe operation methods according to the machine manual or receive professional training programs before actually operating the machine. Communicate online to learn more about fiber laser welding machine
