In recent years, China's sheet metal processing industry has been developing rapidly every year, and China has become a well-known sheet metal processing and manufacturing center in Asia.
The sheet metal processing industry is an industry that is closely related to our lives. Although it accounts for only 20% to 30% of the metal processing, sheet metal processing is involved in most manufacturing industries, such as computers, computers, and machinery , Agricultural machinery, fitness, textile, electrical, instrumentation, sanitation, kitchen, office and so on.
However, the continuous rise in equipment product technology and labor costs has made the traditional sheet metal processing industry also facing development bottlenecks. Purchasing new types of flexible and efficient equipment and challenging process limits will become an inevitable trend in the development of the industry in the future.
Traditional cutting processes, such as CNC shears, can only be used for linear cutting. Compared with the multifunctional operation of fiber laser cutting machines, there are disadvantages that cannot be ignored;
Although flame cutting has low investment, thermal deformation is too large when cutting thin plates, which affects the cutting quality of materials and wastes materials, which is not as fast as the processing speed of fiber laser cutting machines. But for thick plate cutting, flame cutting still has advantages.
Plasma cutting accuracy is higher than flame cutting, but the thermal deformation is large and the slope is large when cutting thin plates. Compared with the precision cutting of laser cutting machine, it is easy to cause the waste of raw materials.
High-pressure water cutting has no restrictions on the material, but is slower and consumes more than the cutting of a fiber laser cutting machine.
In the past, the cost of a mold for an equipment case was generally as high as 100,000 or hundreds of thousands. Although a mold or some simple molds can complete complex machine parts and other mechanical parts, the batch processing cycle only requires more than ten days, but the mold development and production are sufficient. It took several months and required repeated mold repairs with poor accuracy. Nowadays, it is an era of informationization. Products are updated quickly, and small batch production has become the mainstream mode of sheet metal processing. Under this mode, the application of laser cutting machines has greatly saved the cost of mold opening and secondary processing. Shortened production cycle, which cannot be achieved by other hardware processing and die stamping. It is reported that after the laser cutting machine is put into use in the sheet metal industry, it saves tens of billions of yuan in capital for the sheet metal processing industry every year.
With the rise of the laser cutting machine industry, the introduction of laser cutting technology by the sheet metal processing industry has enabled the sheet metal industry to develop rapidly, and it also fully reflects the ability of laser cutting for flexible production, process design, and precision machining Ability to meet the processing requirements for multiple varieties, multiple batches, small batches, non-standard and high precision.
In a sense, laser cutting machines have brought a major technological revolution to sheet metal processing. Compared with traditional cutting methods, laser cutting machines are easier to understand and learn, and have absolute advantages in terms of processing effects and speeds required by businesses. Therefore, it is believed that laser cutting machines are the trend in the choice of cutting methods in the future.
