Laser cutting machines can be applied in food machinery manufacturing

Xintian Laser Cutting Machine

It is not difficult to find that most food machinery is made of metal materials. Nowadays, with the rapid development of the economy, the demand for various food machinery has skyrocketed. The manufacturing of food machinery cannot do without sheet metal processing. As the mainstream equipment for sheet metal processing, laser cutting machines play an indispensable role in food machinery manufacturing.

Food machinery is mainly customized in small batches, and different processing equipment is designed for different types of food. However, before forming food machinery, multiple sample tests are required. However, traditional process sampling requires multiple processes such as mold opening, stamping, plate cutting, bending, etc., which consumes a lot of manpower and financial resources, resulting in high costs. Therefore, it seriously hinders the pace of innovative development in the food machinery industry.

Laser cutting machines are renowned for their high-precision and flexible cutting capabilities, capable of cutting various metal materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum alloys. For the manufacturing of food machinery and equipment, the advantages of laser cutting machines are mainly reflected in their fast cutting speed, good cutting quality, and high accuracy: narrow cutting seams, smooth cutting surfaces, and no damage to the workpiece; When cutting, it is not affected by the shape of the workpiece or the hardness of the material being cut; In addition to processing metal materials, non-metals can also be cut and processed; Save mold investment, save materials, and more effectively save costs; It is easy to operate, safe, and stable in performance. It improves the speed of Product development, and has extensive adaptability and flexibility.

The food machinery industry in China has always faced an awkward situation of being small but scattered, large but not precise, and the core technology of products is difficult to compete with developed ones. To remain invincible in the international market, food production must achieve mechanization, automation, specialization, and scale, free from traditional manual labor and workshop style operations, and improve hygiene, safety, and production efficiency.

In the future, domestic food machinery products and food machinery manufacturing technology will better reflect informatization, digitization, refinement, high-speed, and automation, continuously catching up with and surpassing advanced foreign levels. In this process, Pengwo Laser and laser cutting machines will be duty-bound to help the food machinery industry move from “Made in China” to “Created in China”, and create more high-quality and safe food machinery.

The application of laser processing in food machinery has the following advantages:

1. Safety and hygiene: Laser cutting is a non-contact processing, making it very clean and hygienic, suitable for food machinery production;

2. Cutting seam thickness: The cutting seam of laser cutting is generally between 0.10 and 0.20mm;

3. Smooth cutting surface: The laser cutting surface has no burrs and can cut various thicknesses of boards. The cross-sectional area is very smooth, and there is no need for secondary processing to create high-end food machinery;

4. Fast speed, effectively improving the production efficiency of food machinery;

5. Suitable for processing large products: The mold manufacturing cost of large products is very high, laser cutting does not require any mold manufacturing, and can completely avoid edge collapse formed during material punching and shearing, greatly reducing production costs and improving the level of food machinery.

6. Very suitable for the development of new products: once the product drawings are formed, laser processing can be carried out immediately to obtain the physical products of the new products in a short period of time, effectively promoting the upgrading of food machinery.

7. Material saving: Laser processing uses computer programming to perform material nesting on products of different shapes, greatly improving material utilization and reducing food machinery production costs.
