Manufacturing enterprises often encounter the problem of metal corrosion and rust in the daily operation process, which seriously affects the service life of metal and its products and the safety of workers' operation. Metal processing parts are easy to rust during production, processing and transportation.
The rust is a mixture of oxides and hydroxides formed on the metal surface due to the action of oxygen and water. It is difficult for machinery not to come into contact with oxygen, moisture or other corrosive media in the air during operation and storage. These substances will cause electrochemical corrosion on the metal surface and rust. For example, iron will produce red rust, copper will produce green rust, and aluminum will produce rust. Produces white rust.
The RL-C200W laser was used for laser cleaning red rust experiments. The repetition frequency was set to 10 kHz, and the material temperature after cleaning was 35 °C, and the red rust was basically removed. The photos and videos before and after cleaning are as follows:
