Application of laser cutting technology in sheet metal processing
1. Application advantages
The traditional sheet metal processing technology mainly includes shearing, bending, punching, etc., but in actual use, it is often necessary to use a mold to start processing, which not only requires a long processing time and processing cost, but also requires a long processing time and processing cost. It is also difficult to obtain an exact guarantee in terms of quality, which makes it difficult to meet the needs of modern industrial production in a timely manner. The application of laser cutting technology in sheet metal processing can effectively make up for the shortcomings of traditional processing technology and meet the needs of modern production. Its application advantages are mainly reflected in:
1) It is beneficial to optimize the process and reduce the difficulty and intensity of work. Laser cutting technology reduces the amount of mold used, which in turn reduces the time it takes to replace it. Through the application of the laser cutting machine, the sheet metal processing workpiece can be directly welded and assembled, the processing method from “casting” to “welding” is realized, and the processing process is optimized, so as to reduce the processing time of the product and reduce the Processing difficulty, reduce work intensity. At the same time, since the application of this technology can effectively reduce the use of molds, it can promote the smooth development of product development and design work, and can effectively reduce the application time, thus providing a convenient prerequisite for the research and development of new products. Therefore, this technology can be applied to the processing and production of some small batches of workpieces to shorten the product manufacturing cycle, and to strictly control the size of the blanking die, so as to facilitate the smooth production of large batches of workpieces in the future.
2) It is beneficial to improve the efficiency of processing work and the quality of processed workpieces. Laser cutting technology is a very advanced process technology. Through the analysis of its processing principle, it can be seen that it can reduce processing time with its high-precision, fast and precise cutting technology, and is often used in sheet metal processing operations. One-time forming improves the utilization rate of materials and other resources and improves work efficiency. In addition, because the laser cutting technology has the characteristics of small kerf, precision density, smooth kerf, etc., and can complete the cutting operation in a fast time, it can improve the processing efficiency while enhancing the quality of the processed workpiece, and then Provide a solid quality guarantee for its further use. Therefore, the advantages of laser cutting technology should be fully utilized in sheet metal processing, so as to carry out high-precision and high-quality processing work smoothly.
3) It is beneficial to reduce the processing cost. In the practical application of laser cutting technology, it will effectively use the advantages of CNC programming software to strictly and effectively control the application of related processing materials, and improve the utilization rate of thin-plate materials, so as to achieve the optimal configuration of processing materials and reduce waste. At the same time, it can also reduce the number of clamping, thereby helping enterprises to reduce the cost of sheet metal processing. Therefore, in the process of sheet metal processing, the effective application of CNC programming related software should be continuously strengthened for the processing of sheet metal materials, and the function of optimizing the nesting should be fully exerted, so as to omit the cutting link and reduce the clamping, in order to Successful completion of sheet metal processing operations.
