Laser cutting machine will replace punch



The products of the laser processing industry in China mainly include various types of laser marking machines, welding machines, cutting machines, dicing machines, engraving machines, heat treatment machines, three-dimensional forming machines, and texturing machines, which occupy a large market share in China. The punch in the international market has been gradually replaced by the laser, while our country's punch and laser cutting machine coexist, but with the continuous application of laser technology in the manufacturing industry, laser cutting machine will gradually replace the punch, so the analysis believes that the market for laser cutting equipment is very large.

In the laser processing equipment market, laser cutting is one of the most important application technologies and has been widely used in shipbuilding, automobiles, rolling stock manufacturing, aviation, chemical, light industry, electrical and electronics, petroleum and metallurgy and other industrial sectors. Take Japan as an example: In 1985, the sales volume of new presses in Japan was roughly 900 units a year, while the sales of laser cutting machines were only 100 units. However, in 2005, the sales volume soared to 950 units, and the annual sales volume of presses dropped to about 500 units. .

According to relevant data, from 2008 to 2014, the scale of laser cutting equipment in China has maintained a steady growth. In 2008, the market size of laser cutting equipment in China was only 507 million yuan, and the growth rate exceeded 100% by 2012. In 2014, the market size of laser cutting equipment in China was 1.235 billion yuan, a year-on-year growth rate of 8%.

According to statistics, high-power laser cutting equipment will have a cumulative capacity of around 35,000 units globally in 2009, and may now be higher; while China's current inventory is estimated at 2,500-3,000 units. It is estimated that by the end of the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan”, the market demand for high-power CNC laser cutting machines in China will reach more than 10,000 units. According to the price of 1.5 million units per unit, the market size will be more than 1.5 billion. For China's current manufacturing equivalent, the future penetration rate of high-power cutting equipment will increase significantly.

Combining with the growth of the market size of laser cutting equipment in China in recent years, and the prospects for the demand for laser cutting equipment in China, according to the prediction of high-energy laser, the market scale of laser cutting equipment in China is still growing steadily. It is estimated that by 2020, the market size of laser cutting equipment in China will reach 1.9 billion yuan.

Since the laser cutting process is limited by the laser power and intensity, most modern laser cutting machines require the assembly of a laser that can provide beam parameters with values ​​close to the optimum value of the technology. High-power laser technology represents the highest level of laser application technology. China's high-power laser cutting equipment has a huge difference from developed countries in Europe and America. It can be predicted that the demand for high-end high-power CNC laser cutting machines featuring high cutting speed, high precision, and large cutting width in the future will increase dramatically. The situation.
