Modern laser manufacturing is one of the common processing methods, and one of its leading fields is the extension of the application field. Key for the development trend of the automotive, aerospace vehicle, shipping and rail vehicles, transport machinery, light, metallurgy industry and circular economy, realize the industrialized application of laser manufacturing technology in the field of defense and key industry.
At the same time, the new requirement of laser manufacturing system is put forward, such as miniaturization, high conversion efficiency and integration of laser, fiber laser and semiconductor laser will be developed vigorously. To promote China's laser manufacturing technology towards higher efficiency, lower energy consumption, shorter process, the beam quality is higher, better performance, digital and intelligent degree of the higher, lower cost in the direction of development, change the status quo of China's large industrial laser equipment manufacturing is completely dependent on imports.
The application of laser technology in shipbuilding has its unique characteristics, which is closely related with the processing and application characteristics of the ship and the characteristics of laser manufacturing system. At present, aluminum alloy material has become the key material of transport machinery manufacturing. The whole aluminum structure ship shows a good development prospect, with advanced laser manufacturing technology, showing the unlimited development potential.
At present, the world industry is toward the direction of low energy consumption, short process development, laser manufacturing has many advantages that can not be compared with the traditional manufacturing methods, countries all over the world have increased the degree of attention to the development of manufacturing. But compared with foreign countries, the application of laser technology in our country is still not much, it has not played its due role.
The reason is that, first, the laser manufacturing system of high cost, high input; for more extensive popularization of laser manufacturing technology application for high input, the need to fully understand the effects of laser manufacturing technology application of key factors based on comprehensive consideration of the ship itself needs, laser processing system of investment and other factors, cost control, to find the best processing conditions, improve processing efficiency, and ultimately the formation of a new generation of laser in China manufacturing industry chain.
