Intelligent, high-end, diversified, energy-saving are the new trends in the automobile industry over the years. Automobile manufacturing is a complex and precise project that requires a series of process technologies to work together, and laser cutting technology has become an important technology to promote the upgrading of automobile manufacturing. In developed industrial countries such as Europe and the United States, 50% to 70% of auto parts are completed by laser processing. The laser application in the automotive industry is mainly laser welding and laser cutting. Laser cutting includes plane cutting and 3D cutting.
Flat laser cutting
Automobiles need to use plane laser cutting technology mainly: auto parts, car body, roof cover, door, trunk, etc. Among them, the laser cutting technology of auto parts is particularly precise, especially the important parts such as engines, because it is related to the stability and dynamic performance of cars. The use of precision laser cutting can effectively improve the accuracy of components of engine parts, bringing a revolutionary breakthrough to the development of the automobile manufacturing industry.
3D laser cutting
The 3D laser cutting machine is a laser processing device that can be cut freely without being restricted by the cutting direction. It can cut metal materials of different thicknesses in multiple angles and all directions. The application of 3D laser cutting technology in automobile manufacturing is mainly for car body,cutting holes of car body cover, trimming, cutting steering wheel holes, etc. As a multidisciplinary and comprehensive advanced thermal cutting equipment, laser cutting machine integrates computer numerical control technology, high-precision mechanical transmission and advanced laser, and has the characteristics of high efficiency, high precision, high flexibility, non-contact and pollution-free. In today's automobile lightweight trend, the prospect is bound to become wider and wider. As far as the automobile manufacturing industry is concerned, the application of laser cutting technology has driven industrial upgrading. As far as the entire manufacturing industry is concerned, Laser cutting technology drives Chinese manufacturing to globalization and intelligentization. As the global manufacturing center moves to China, China's demand for laser cutting machines is also growing. The laser cutting industry has grown from scratch to now, it has begun to take shape. Laser cutting machine not only has unlimited potential in the automobile manufacturing market, but also shows amazing explosiveness in other application fields.
