Nowadays, advocating for green and environmental protection, many people choose to travel by bike. However, when you walk on the street, the bicycles you see are basically the same appearance and have no distinctive features. Have you ever thought about owning a bicycle that belongs to your own personality? In this high-tech era, laser cutting machines can help you achieve this dream.
In Belgium, a bicycle called “Erembald” has attracted many people’s attention, and this bicycle is limited to only 50 units worldwide.
This bicycle is made using a laser cutting machine, which can meet the requirements of different cycling enthusiasts and achieve the desired effect. The “Erembald” bicycle is entirely made of stainless steel material and has a simple design. So, to create such a cool bicycle, you must have a tube laser cutting machine.
Laser pipe cutting machine
Laser pipe cutting machine is a specialized machine tool that uses laser technology to cut various shapes on pipe fittings and profiles. It is a high-tech product that integrates CNC technology, laser cutting, and precision machinery. It has the characteristics of professionalism, high speed, high precision, high efficiency, and high cost-effectiveness, making it the preferred equipment for the non-contact metal pipe processing industry.
At present, bicycle frames are all made of pipes, which have two advantages: firstly, they are relatively light in weight, and secondly, pipes have a certain degree of strength. The majority of the pipe materials used for bicycles are aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, chromium molybdenum steel, and carbon fiber. Improving the design ability of pipes and structures and innovating processing technology have become an eternal melody for the innovative development of the bicycle industry.
Laser cutting of pipes has become a popular cutting process in recent years. Compared with traditional cutting processes, laser cutting of pipes has a smoother cutting section, and the cut pipes can be directly used for welding, reducing the processing procedures in the bicycle industry. Compared to traditional pipe processing that requires cutting, punching, and bending processes, traditional pipe processing processes consume a large amount of molds. Laser cutting of pipes not only has fewer processes, higher efficiency, but also improves the quality of the cut workpiece. At present, China’s bicycle industry is growing rapidly with the trend of national fitness, and there is still great market development space.
Advantages of laser tube cutting
1 High precision
The laser cutting machine for pipes adopts the same fixture system, and the processing design is completed by programming software. It also completes multiple processing steps at once, with high accuracy and smooth cutting section without burrs.
2 High efficiency
The laser cutting machine for pipes can cut several meters of pipes in one minute, a hundred times more than traditional manual methods, which means that laser processing is efficient.
The laser cutting machine for pipes can flexibly process various shapes, which allows designers to carry out complex designs that are unimaginable under traditional processing methods.
4 Batch processing
The standard pipe length is 6 meters, and using traditional processing methods requires very cumbersome clamping. However, the pipe laser cutting machine can easily complete the clamping and positioning of several meters long pipes. The laser cutting machine can batch complete the automatic cutting, calibration, detection, loading, and unloading of pipes, effectively reducing labor costs.
It is precisely because of the unique and flexible processing method of laser cutting machines that the bicycle frame can also be made into other styles. The unique manufacturing process gives the entire bicycle a unique shine, making it the best way to produce and process small batches of bicycles.
