Many products in the manufacturing industry will be used in hardware, in the traditional industry, the general hardware processing will be used punch processing, it develops a unique mold, the use of large stamping force once molding, this method has been a lot of large hardware factory commonly used, when the need for mass production can be large The production is simple and fast. But there are also many shortcomings, the direct is that stamping hardware needs to develop molds, which requires the development cycle and mold costs, if it is large-scale hardware may need several sets of molds with the use.
When laser technology is improved, some hardware will adopt laser cutting method, because it does not need to develop molds, as long as the engineers draw drawings, laser cutting equipment will accurately complete the cutting according to the design line quickly, very fast.
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, high cutting speed, high production efficiency, short production cycle, and has won a wide market for customers. Laser cutting has no cutting force, no deformation; no tool wear, good material adaptability; whether it is simple or complex parts, can be used laser one-time precision rapid prototyping cutting; its slit narrow, cutting quality is good, high degree of automation, simple operation, low labor intensity, no pollution; can realize automatic cutting row Sample and nesting improve material utilization, low production cost and good economic benefit. The effective life of this technology is long. At present, laser cutting is mostly used in superstructure 2mm plate abroad. Many foreign experts agree that the next 10 years will be the golden age of laser processing technology development.
