2018 Laser Processing Equipment Manufacturing Industry Analysis
Apr 10, 2018

Abstract: The concept of intelligence is a hot spot in the development of China's new economy. Domestic laser companies are actively participating in major national intelligent manufacturing projects. Intelligentization has therefore become one of the future development trends in the laser processing equipment manufacturing industry. Laser+ automation applications will provide  the most advantageous solution for industrial 4.0 Flexible Manufacturing.

 

Laser processing equipment manufacturing industry development status.

Laser is one of the four major inventions in the 20th century with atomic energy, semiconductors, and computers. Due to its good monochromaticity, directionality, and high energy density, lasers have become a representative of advanced manufacturing technologies and an important means to upgrade and transform traditional industries. In the industrial field, the most important application of laser technology is laser processing.

 

Laser processing is a processing technology that uses laser beams to cut, weld, surface-treat, punch, and micro-process materials. It has been widely used in automobile, electronics, aerospace, metallurgy, and machinery manufacturing and other important national economic sectors. Increased product quality, labor productivity, automation, and reduced material consumption play an important role.

 

Laser processing equipment mainly includes laser marking machines, laser cutting machines, laser welding machines and other equipment. The main function of the laser marking machine is to etch patterns, trademarks and texts on the surface of various materials such as metal, leather and plastic. Laser cutting machine can cut metal and other materials, has more applications in sheet metal processing, and gradually replace the traditional processing methods. Laser welding machines mainly weld thin-walled materials and precision parts such as connector welding and power battery top welding.

In general, laser processing technology is a high technology that the country mainly supports and promotes, and is listed as a key development project. The laser processing equipment manufacturing industry has a promising future. It is expected that by 2020, the market size of laser processing equipment in China will reach 13.4 billion yuan, of which China's laser marking equipment accounted for 49.07%; followed by laser micro-machining equipment and laser cutting equipment, accounting for 15.84% and 15.35%, respectively.

 

Future of laser processing equipment manufacturing industry.

First of all, the application fields of China's laser processing equipment industry will be expanded from the traditional industries of electronics, automobiles, steel, petroleum, shipbuilding, and aviation to the six high-tech fields of information, materials, biology, energy, space, and oceans. The demand in the field will also bring about a new round of growth in China's laser processing equipment industry.

 

Secondly, with the strong support of the nation, provinces, and cities, our laser technology has reached a high level and scale regardless of the R&D team, R&D investment, and R&D level. The R&D lasers cover various wavelengths required for current laser manufacturing. In the time domain, some of the technical levels have reached the international advanced level. As the industry further develops, related technical capabilities will continue to increase.

 

Thirdly, the concept of intelligence is a hot spot in the development of China's new economy. Domestic laser companies actively participate in major national intelligent manufacturing projects, and intelligence has thus become one of the future development trends in the laser processing equipment manufacturing industry. “Laser+” automation applications It will provide the most advantageous solution for industrial 4.0 flexible manufacturing.

 

Finally, the urgent need for China's manufacturing industry to upgrade will boost China's laser industry for another decade. In the next five years, the laser processing equipment manufacturing industry will maintain an average annual growth rate of 15%. Domestic companies need to continuously carry out scientific and technological innovation, industrial upgrading, expansion of R & D team, and become the mainstay in the new development.
