The application of laser cutting technology not only improves the working efficiency of processing, but also improves the accuracy of products. Laser cutting is a widely used technology. In the processing field, about 73% of the processing operations need to be completed by laser cutting technology.
Compared with traditional cutting, laser cutting technology has the advantages of high precision, strong adaptability, low noise and good cutting quality, and has been widely used. At the same time, for some complex processing operations completed with the help of large abrasive tools, the application of laser cutting technology not only does not need to use abrasive tools, but also ensures the cutting quality. In the process of reducing production costs, the production efficiency is improved. Therefore, laser cutting technology is widely used in automobile manufacturing, aviation and light industry. In recent years, with the development of China’s processing industry, laser cutting technology has made rapid development in application.
With the wide application of machining and cutting technology, the development speed of laser cutting machine is 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 into high-speed and high-precision cutting technology in the following directions. At present, China’s processing and cutting technology is still lagging behind.
In view of this situation, the current machining and cutting technology in China is gradually developing towards high speed and high precision. At present, the beam mode of high-power laser has been improved, and the related application of microcomputer makes it possible to produce high-precision, high-speed processing and cutting equipment. At present, the speed of laser cutting technology applied in China has exceeded 20m / min, the moving speed of the two axes of the cutting machine can reach 250m / min, and the acceleration during operation can reach about 10g. On a 1mm thick plate, about 500 holes and about 10mm holes can be cut every minute.
In the application of laser cutting technology, it will be found that these holes are small in the same spirit. It can be seen that laser cutting technology has actually begun to develop towards high speed and high precision in practical application. Laser cutting technology is applied to thick plate cutting and large-size workpiece cutting. In the actual operation process, it can be found that the power of laser cutting equipment used in actual operation is gradually increasing, and laser cutting is also developing from light industrial thin plate cutting to heavy industrial thick plate cutting.
The thickness of carbon steel plate cut by high-power 20kW laser can reach 100mm. In the process of continuous improvement of cutting technology, China has been trying, and 6kW laser has been gradually applied to cut 25mm carbon steel plate. And the project operation has started. In addition, the size range of workpieces used in laser cutting technology is increasing.
From the actual cutting process, it can be found that laser cutting technology has begun to develop towards thick plates and large sizes, which has promoted the design of laser cutting equipment in this direction, thus further improving industrial processing technology. After China’s accession to the world trade organization, frequent international exchanges have prompted various industries to gradually join the ranks of international competition. In this process, automotive, aviation and other industries need to constantly apply laser cutting technology in the development process. However, China has also applied three-dimensional six axis laser cutting technology.
For processing operation, the application of three-dimensional laser cutting machine in practical operation helps the development of laser cutting technology in a more accurate direction, and the economic development of three-dimensional laser cutting promotes the maturity of processing technology. As a processing technology, it is necessary and urgent for laser cutting technology to develop in the direction of automation and unmanned.
At the same time, the application of computer network technology makes automatic and unmanned laser cutting technology possible. At present, many laser cutting machines of this type have been produced abroad, and the market demand for this technology is growing, which makes the laser cutting technology gradually realize automation and unmanned.
