Laser cutting machine technology is gradually developing towards automation and intelligence

XT Laser – Laser Cutting Machine

In the process of rapid development of China’s economic construction, the speed of industrial development is obvious to all. In the process of industrial development, the importance of processing technology in industry gradually manifests itself. As an advanced processing technology, laser cutting machine technology has played a positive role in promoting the development of the entire industry in terms of its development prospects and application importance.

The application of laser cutting technology not only improves the working efficiency of machining, but also makes the machining process more precise. Laser cutting is a widely used technology in industrial production. In the processing field, about 73% of processing operations need to be completed through laser cutting technology.

Compared with traditional cutting, laser cutting technology has advantages such as high accuracy, strong adaptability, low noise, and good cutting quality, among which waiting points are widely used. At the same time, for some complex processing operations completed with the aid of large abrasive tools, the application of laser cutting technology not only does not require the use of abrasive tools, but also ensures cutting quality. In the process of reducing production costs, production efficiency is improved. Therefore, laser cutting technology is widely used in automobile manufacturing, aviation, light industry, and other industries. In recent years, with the development of China’s processing industry, laser cutting technology has achieved rapid development in application.

With the wide application of machining and cutting technology, the development speed of laser cutting machines has further accelerated. The development of laser cutting technology can make this technology more advanced in the application process. From the current development situation, laser cutting technology is developing towards high-speed and high-precision cutting technology in the following directions. At present, China’s processing and cutting technology is still relatively backward.

In response to this situation, China’s current machining and cutting technology is gradually developing towards high-speed and high-precision direction. Currently, the beam mode of high-power lasers has been improved, and the related applications of microcomputers have made it possible to produce high-precision, high-speed machining and cutting equipment. At present, the speed of laser cutting technology applied in China has exceeded 20 m/min, the two-axis moving speed of the cutting machine can reach 250 m/min, and the acceleration during operation can reach about 10 G. On a 1mm thick board, about 500 holes can be cut every minute, about 10mm holes.

During the application of laser cutting technology, it will be found that these holes are very small. It can be seen that laser cutting technology has actually begun to develop towards high-speed and high-precision directions in practical applications. Laser cutting technology is applied to thick plate cutting and large size workpiece cutting. The power of cutting equipment is gradually increasing, and laser cutting fluids are also developing from light industrial thin plate cutting to heavy industrial thick plate cutting.

High power 6KW laser can cut carbon steel plates with a thickness of 32mm. In the process of continuously improving cutting technology, China has been conducting experiments. 3KW laser has been gradually applied to the cutting of 32mm carbon steel plate. And the project operation has already started running. In addition, the range of workpiece sizes used in laser cutting technology is also expanding. Currently, laser cutting technology can cut panels up to 63 meters in length and 55 meters in width.

From the actual cutting process, it can be found that laser cutting technology has begun to develop towards thick plates and large dimensions, promoting the design of laser cutting equipment in this direction, thereby further improving industrial processing technology. After China’s accession to the World Trade Organization, international exchanges have been frequent, promoting various industries to gradually join the ranks of international competition. In this process, the automotive and aviation industries need to continuously apply laser cutting technology in the development process. However, China also applies 5-axis and 6-axis 3D laser cutting technology.

For processing operations, the application of three-dimensional laser cutting machines in practical operations will help the development of laser cutting technology towards a more precise direction, and the economic construction of three-dimensional laser cutting will promote the maturity of processing technology. As a processing technology, laser cutting technology is necessary and urgent to develop towards automation and unmanned direction.

At the same time, the application of computer network technology makes automatic and unmanned laser cutting technology possible. Currently, many laser cutting machines of this type have been produced abroad, and the market demand for this technology is increasing, making laser cutting technology gradually automated and unmanned.
