XT Laser – a high-quality medium power laser cutting machine launched
With the development and wide application of science and technology, the scope of sheet metal laser cutting processing is gradually expanded and gradually developed in our daily life. According to the agency’s prediction, the global laser processing market is expected to reach 9.75 billion US dollars by 2022, with a CAGR of 6.13% over the six-year period. At present, automobile, clothing, shoemaking, handicrafts and other industries are the hot spots of laser cutting machine development, with several industries accounting for more than 50%.
The automobile industry drives the growth of laser cutting machine market
In the past few decades, the laser cutting industry has experienced a series of changes, including the improvement of the quality and thickness of cutting materials, the improvement of machine power and efficiency. Today’s laser cutting machine can achieve higher speed, precision and better quality to efficiently process countless parts and components, including automobiles, aerospace, medical care, plastics, electrical and electronic, textiles, woodworking, etc.
The stable growth of the automobile industry is one of the core factors driving the global laser cutting machine market. In the past few years, the automobile production capacity of Asian countries such as China and India has increased significantly. In recent years, the rapid development of industrial fiber lasers and disk lasers has also brought significant technological changes to traditional solid-state laser processing. Such lasers will become the leading trend in the global laser cutting machine market in the forecast period.
Intelligent manufacturing promotes technology upgrading
In the context of “Made in China 2025”, laser technology is bound to promote the expansion of the manufacturing industry to the high-end of the value chain. Among the ten key areas released by this strategy, the demand for high-end laser technologies such as laser welding, laser cutting, 3D laser fusion printing will continue to be released in aerospace equipment, new energy vehicles and other fields.
According to the Laser Industry Market Analysis Report of the Prospective Industry Research Institute, in 2015, the total sales revenue of laser equipment (including imports) in the fields of industry, information technology, commerce, medical treatment, scientific research and other fields in China’s laser industry market reached 33.6 billion yuan, an increase of 4.7 percentage points over 2014. In 2016, the annual growth rate of China’s laser industry reached more than 20%. With the help of the Chinese government’s efforts to promote intelligent manufacturing and “Made in China 2025”, the industry continues to maintain rapid development.
In the process of transformation and upgrading, China’s economy has entered the “new normal” of medium-high speed development. Strategic emerging industries and productive services have bucked the trend and gradually become the two “new engines” of economic growth. More and more traditional industries rely on laser processing technology to improve the processing quality of products or solve problems that cannot be solved by traditional processing methods and processes, which brings good development opportunities for China’s laser industry.
The market capacity of laser cutting machine is quite large
According to the data from the Data Monitoring Center of the Prospective Industry Research Institute, the laser cutting machine industry in China has developed rapidly in recent years, with the annual growth rates of output and apparent consumption of 30% and 22% respectively.
At present, the total annual demand for domestic laser cutting machines is about 4 million, accounting for about 15% of the total consumption, but still far below the world average of 25%. In addition, China’s average consumption level is still far behind that of developed countries in the world.
As an important part of the industrial equipment field, laser cutting machine has been listed as one of the key technical fields of the country. Since 2010, China has successively issued various policies to promote the development of the laser cutting machine industry.
At present, automobile, clothing, shoemaking, handicrafts and other industries are the hot spots of laser cutting machine development, with several industries accounting for more than 50%.
The application of laser cutting machine in the clothing industry began in the 1980s and has a history of more than 20 years. With the development of clothing in the direction of high quality, new style and material saving, higher requirements are put forward for laser cutting machines. Because laser cutting machine has more advantages than manual cutting, other mechanical cutting and electric cutting, processing a product can save 10% of material and reduce 16% – 18% of power consumption. Therefore, the use of laser cutting machine can reduce the product cost, achieve energy saving effect, and have better product quality.
High power laser cutting machine is the future development trend.
With strong technical strength in China, the cutting quality, effect and cost of high-power laser cutting machine have been greatly improved. It has been widely used in many industries in China, especially in furniture, advertising, hardware, electronics and other industries. The plane cutting, drilling, blanking, carving and other processes of high-power laser cutting machine are developing towards personalized cutting. The computer control system is required. The computer can draw arbitrary graphics at will and complete the cutting of various complex and fancy patterns. The operation is simple and the cutting effect is accurate. The application in the processing industry will generate greater market demand in the future.
