Technology development trend
As 3D and 5 axis laser cutting technology becomes more and more advanced and progressive, performance and functions become more and more powerful, the technology development trends are as follows:
1.High acceleration and high speed: product acceleration is getting higher and higher, product speed is getting faster and faster, and production efficiency is getting higher and higher；
2.High cutting speed and high precision: Only with fast cutting speed can production efficiency be high and production cost can be reduced； only high positioning speed and high repeat positioning accuracy can have high cutting precision and meet the increasing demand for product quality；
3.Automation and intelligence: labor costs are increasing day by day, and products need to develop in the direction of high automation and high intelligence； on the one hand, high automation can reduce manpower and save costs； on the other hand, High intelligence leads to simple operation of machine equipment technology, less dependence on personnel technology, simple, easy to learn, but also can reduce the cost.
Application development trend
On the one hand, product performance continues to be optimized and improved, and product prices continue to be dropped, making it affordable for more and more users. Basically, three-dimensional and five-axis laser cutting processes are preferred to be adopted than the traditional processing methods.
On the other hand, the three-dimensional five-axis laser cutting technology promotes the personalized design of products, and engineering designers can use their personalized designs to design more exquisite products without being restricted by traditional processing methods.
Furthermore, the entry of thermoforming technology into the automotive industry has prompted the three-dimensional five-axis laser cutting machine to become an irreplaceable process in the automotive production. As more and more models adopt thermoforming technology, more and more three-dimensional five-axis laser cutting machine enters the automobile production line. Currently, only high-end cars are in use, but with technological development, economical cars and new energy cars will also use thermoforming technology.
According to the research and analysis of the automobile industry, the upgrading of automobiles will be more rapid in the future. The past era of producing millions of models has become history. The number of single models is gradually declining, and the cost of molds is very high. The three-dimensional five-axis laser cutting machine will reflect the lower cost of use and meet the development needs of the times.
In summary, in the automotive industry, especially in the automotive thermoforming industry, with the continuous application and development of three-dimensional and five-axis laser cutting technology, the automotive manufacturing technology is becoming more and more advanced, and the production efficiency is getting higher and higher, which can not only solve the problem of high strength steel after thermal forming, but also can promote the development of personalized car design.
