Seven advantages of laser cutting machine for automotive manufacturing


With the increasing demand for product upgrades in the automobile manufacturing industry, the original general-purpose automobile body parts processing technology can no longer fully meet today's product quality and production needs. Among them, laser cutting equipment has high-precision processing, porous and complex shape accessories, etc. Because of its characteristics, it can be widely used in the automobile manufacturing industry and has the irreplaceable advantages of other CNC cutting equipment.   

1. Suitable for a variety of material accessories   

Car processing has low-carbon low-alloy steel, ferritic stainless steel, aluminum alloy and other materials, and laser cutting equipment can process it, and its processing range has almost covered sheet parts of all materials in automotive processing.   

2. High processing accuracy   

Laser cutting equipment has higher processing accuracy than other cutting equipment, and can meet the processing requirements of high-precision parts.   

3. The slit width is narrow   

The small slit is beneficial to reduce the spacing of accessories, improve material utilization, and produce less cutting slag during cutting.   

4. High material utilization   

When cutting parts, it can cut different parts of the same thickness and material, and make full use of the leftover material of the raw materials.

5. Low cutting roughness value   

When the laser cutting equipment cuts parts of the same material, compared to other equipment, the cutting roughness value is lower. In the automobile manufacturing industry, there are obvious differences in the surface roughness of work pieces processed by different CNC cutting equipment, and the laser cutting surface roughness value is low.   

6. Small heat-affected zone   

During the laser cutting process, the edge of the material being cut will produce a heat-affected zone due to heat. However, compared with other processing methods, laser cutting has less energy concentrated heat input and smaller heat-affected zone. It is of great significance to ferritic stainless steels that are easy to grow grains when heated and high-strength steels that tend to harden. It is beneficial to improve welds. quality.   

7. Low-cost laser cutting for small batch production   

In mass production, the process of mold blanking is selected for processing, mass production, the cost of making molds is evenly distributed to each part, and the production cost is lower. However, if it is small batch production and the processing technology of die punching is adopted, not only the production cycle of the mold is longer, and the timeliness of parts processing cannot be satisfied, but the mold production cost is evenly distributed to each part, and the processing cost is relatively high. Laser cutting can ensure that the accessories are formed at one time, which is beneficial to improve the timeliness of accessories processing, and is suitable for small batch production.   


Wuhan HE Laser was established in Wuhan in 2008. It is China's first high-tech enterprise of Sino-Russian laser technology cooperation. The company's 5 series of more than 60 models of laser cutting machines, laser tube cutting machines and other equipment are widely used in the automobile manufacturing industry, providing professional and fast industry application comprehensive solutions for automobile manufacturing.
