The main processes for shipbuilding manufacturing are cutting and welding. With the fierce market competition, the decline in profits and the increase in quality requirements, the shipbuilding industry has paid more attention to manufacturing quality. As a big cutting role, laser cutting system has further ushered in the new situation.
Fiber laser cutting plays an important role in realizing higher productivity and reduce the processing cost.
Higher quality in cutting performance and welding performance. higher accuracy and better quality compared with traditional processing. beautiful finish free from the burrs, rough, or uneven edges.
Clean and environmental processing, less harms to the operators and environment.
Can processing the complicated shapes as required, and the operation is not complicated.
In addition, the laser cutting process is also an ideal way to prepare the ship's front plate. It complies with the current development trend of large-scale ship structures, manufacturing precision, and efficient construction.
In the past, when shipbuilding companies generally used plasma to cut the ribs, in order to ensure the assembly gap, trimming allowances were set on the ribs, which required manual trimming during field assembly. If the cutting quality is uneven, the residual oxide in the cutting slot will increase the assembly workload and also the assembly cycle, and the entire segmented construction cycle will be extended.
In addition, the use of a metal pipe cutting laser machine to cut off the assembly margin eliminates the phenomenon of on-site trimming and reduces labor and material waste. The speed of assembly of the structure is significantly accelerated, and the quality of assembly is significantly improved.
In recent years, "precision shipbuilding" and "rapid shipbuilding" have become the main trends in the development of the shipbuilding industry, and laser cutting technology has developed rapidly, accounting for more than 70% of the entire laser processing industry.
