Traditional sheet metal processing technology: shearing-punching-bending-welding
Plasma cutting process: cutting-bending-welding
In the face of orders of multiple varieties, small batches, customization, high quality and short delivery time, it has obvious shortcomings:
① Because the shear is mainly straight-line cutting, it can only be used for sheet metal processing that only requires straight-line cutting;
②The punch press has restrictions on the cutting of steel plates with a thickness of more than 1.5mm, and the cutting quality is not good, the cost is high, and the noise is large, which is not conducive to environmental protection;
③ Flame cutting is the original traditional cutting method. When cutting, the thermal deformation is large, the slit is wide, the material is wasted, the processing speed is slow, only suitable for rough machining;
④ The high-speed water cutting process is slow, causing serious pollution and high consumption cost.
New sheet metal cutting equipment and process: laser cutting. Laser cutting is a technological revolution in sheet metal processing and a “machining center” in sheet metal processing. Laser cutting has the advantages of high flexibility and flexibility.
In view of the problems existing in traditional sheet metal cutting at this stage, the advantages of laser cutting:
①Laser cutting has strong flexibility, fast cutting speed, high production efficiency, and short production cycle. Whether it is simple or complex parts, you can use laser to achieve a rapid prototyping cutting;
②Narrow cutting seam, good cutting quality, high degree of automation, easy operation, low labor intensity, no pollution;
③It can realize automatic layout and nesting of cutting, which improves the material utilization rate, no tool wear, and good material adaptability;
④Low production cost and good economic benefit.
