3D laser cutting for automotive parts
Aug 31, 2018

3D laser cutting has a high degree of flexibility. Under normal conditions, a set of molds can only be used for one workpiece, and 3D laser cutting can be applied to any workpiece. When the workpiece product changes, such as changes in the surface, trimming, and holes, it is only necessary to change the offline program of the laser cutting. Because the fixtures used are relatively simple, the fixtures are also easy to change. Therefore, laser cutting has more flexibility, which can reduce the investment of the mold and shorten the trial period of the sample.

3D laser cutting for automotive partsLaser cutting uses non-contact processing, which has almost no consumables and no contaminants. The 3D laser cutting machine can also solve the problem of cutting and trimming of some three-dimensional metal parts. At present, three-dimensional laser cutting applications still have certain problems in automotive parts, such as machining accuracy and production efficiency, which cannot meet the requirements of the automotive thermoforming line industry.

However, in the developed industrial countries of Europe and America, 50% to 70% of auto parts are processed by laser processing. China's laser cutting has a vast space in the field of auto parts processing. As the 3D laser cutting machine becomes more and more mature, the machining accuracy and processing efficiency will inevitably increase. At that time, the application of the 3D laser cutting system will become wider and wider.
