Shipbuilding technology is constantly evolving, and so are shipbuilding materials and ship designs. The application of laser cutting machine in shipbuilding has unique characteristics, which is also related to the actual application of the ship itself. The high-precision cutting and high plasticity characteristics of laser cutting machine are highly consistent with the shipbuilding industry. What are the applications of laser cutting machines in the shipbuilding industry?
In recent years, the main development trend of the shipbuilding industry is gradually aligning with "rapid shipbuilding" and "precision shipbuilding". Laser cutting technology has developed rapidly, accounting for more than 70% of the entire laser processing industry. The shipbuilding industry mainly uses steel plate materials, and laser cutting plates are used. Compared with traditional punch processing, the production cycle is greatly reduced and the cost is also saved. Using a laser cutting machine to cut materials can effectively reduce the on-site secondary trimming process and improve product quality.
At present, the blanking methods of hull plates in the shipbuilding industry mostly use flame cutting, plasma cutting, shearing and bending machine processing, and laser cutting. Laser cutting avoids the occurrence of uneven trimming quality caused by setting a trimming allowance on the board and manually trimming it in order to ensure the assembly gap when the plasma is cutting the board. Thereby, the relative workload, production cycle and labor cost can be reduced.
The hull steel plate obtained by laser cutting has good slit quality, good verticality of the incision surface, no dross, thin oxide layer, smooth surface, no secondary processing, can be directly welded, and has small thermal deformation, high curve cutting accuracy, and reduced Cooperate with the working hours to realize barrier-free cutting of precision ship plates. Laser cutting machines will be used in more shipbuilding companies in the future, and high-power laser cutting machines are bound to be the future trend.
