Seven Development Trend of Laser Cutting machine
Laser cutting machine is one of the most important application technologies in the laser processing industry.
Due to its many characteristics, it has been widely used in the automotive and vehicle manufacturing.
In recent years, laser cutting technology has developed rapidly .
And it has been growing at an annual rate of 20% to 30%.
Due to the poor foundation of the laser industry in China, the application of laser processing technology is not yet widespread.
And the overall level of laser processing still has a large gap compared with advanced countries.
We believe that we could resolve these obstacles and deficiencies with the continuous progress of laser processing technology.
Laser cutting machine will become an indispensable and important tool for sheet metal processing in the 21st century.
1.Big development trends of laser cutting machine
(1)High power laser source for more thicker material cutting
With the development of high-power laser source, and the using of high-performance CNC and servo systems.
High-power laser cutting can achieve high processing speed, reducing the heat-affected zone and thermal distortion.
And it is able to cut more thicker material.
What’s more, high power laser source can use Q-switching or pulsed waves to make the low power laser source produce high power lasers.
(2)The using of auxiliary gas and energy to improve process
According to the effect of laser cutting process parameters, improve the processing technology.
For example: using auxiliary gas to increase the blowing force of cutting slag.
Besides,adding slag former to increase the fluidity of the melt material.
And increasing auxiliary energy to improve energy coupling.
And switching to higher-absorption laser cutting.
(3)Laser cutting is developing into highly automated and intelligent.
It developed highly automated and multi-function laser processing system.
That is cause thee application of CAD/CAPP/CAM software and artificial intelligence in laser industry.
(4)Process database adapts to laser power and laser model by itself
Moreover,it can control laser power and laser model by itself according to processing speed.
Or it can establish process database and expert adaptive control system to improve the whole performance of the laser cutting machine.
Besides,Taking the database as the core of the system and facing general-purpose CAPP development tools.
And it analyzes the various types of data involved in laser cutting process design.
And it establishes an appropriate database structure.
(5)The developing of multi-functional laser machining center
At last,it integrates the quality feedback of all procedures such as laser cutting, laser welding and heat treatment.
And give full play to the overall advantages of laser processing.
