Laser Application in Metal Pipes – China is the largest producer and consumer of steel over the world. In recent years, in order to meet the processing requirements of the industrial market. Various laser processing systems for pipe cutting is more and more familiar to metal cutting. With the rapid growth of metal pipe production and consumption, advanced laser processing system solutions have widely applied pipes industrial production and processing. Especially in the processing of stainless steel, alloy steel, silicon steel, galvanized steel. And also nickel-titanium alloy, Inconel, titanium alloys and other metal pipe processing applications.
At present, although the pipe laser cutting equipment is rapidly popular in China. And the demand for numerical control cutting talents and laser cutting technology is rapidly increasing. Laser Application in Metal Pipes. Serious shortages and lags in laser cutting equipment and CNC cutting talents and processes have resulted in low cutting efficiency and poor cutting quality.For the main technical problems of laser cutting, we have listed some of the major technical considerations of the pipe industry for the reference of business owners.
For large-length metal pipe full-stroke automatic laser cutting blanking process requirements, in the mechanical structure using a unique double drive pneumatic chuck rotation mechanism.2 That can realize large-length metal pipe full-stroke automatic laser cutting and cutting.
CNC cutting is a high-volume, high-efficiency and high-quality cutting production method for pipes. The core of CNC cutting is the CNC cutting system. It is the cutting control software of the index control system to provide advanced cutting technology experience. So that the operator can use the control system skillfully to achieve high-quality, high-efficiency CNC cutting.
First of all, through the professional pipe cutting software in advance on the computer drawing, nesting, cutting and programming subsection, NC cutting program generated. And then the full length of the metal pipe full length automatic laser cutting. Professional pipe nesting software is the basis and prerequisite for realizing high-volume, high-efficiency and high-quality cutting production of CNC pipe cutters.
When the pipe cutting (especially for small diameter pipe), the slag will appear to the inner wall of the pipe. The workpiece will absorbe cutting heat. When the cutting density is large, it often causes the pipe to overheat as well as the corners. Burning of the corners severely affects the quality of the cuts and even cannot cut. Keeping the focus of the cutting nozzle and the surface of the workpiece surface unchanged, so the change of the surface of the workpiece won’t affct the cutting effect.
Now, laser tube cutting technology is in a process of rapid development and continuous improvement. With the continuous update and development of computer technology, mechanical structure, cutting technology and optimization algorithms, CNC laser tube cutting technology will more prominently demonstrate its intelligence and speed.
