Laser cutting robot has the characteristics of high cutting accuracy, fast cutting speed, narrow cutting seam, high cutting quality, good flexibility, high flexibility and stable performance.
Laser cutting robot is the product of combining laser cutting technology with robot technology. Laser cutting is to gather the high power density laser beam into a small light spot, and the heat is highly concentrated to realize the local rapid heating of the workpiece, thus resulting in the slit cutting. The cutting is completed by moving the laser beam. Combined with robot technology, the flexibility of laser cutting is greatly enhanced, which can realize flexible cutting in multiple directions and angles. Laser cutting robot is mainly composed of laser, positioner, controller, arm, end actuator, etc.
The automobile industry is an important downstream market for laser cutting robots. In the process of automobile production, many kinds of parts manufacturing need cutting process, such as body, door, exhaust pipe, etc. After the traditional cutting equipment completes the cutting, the cutting surface is uneven, there are problems such as corners or burrs, the cutting accuracy is limited, and secondary processing is required, and the cutting equipment relies on manual operation, the cutting speed is slow, and errors are easy to occur. Laser cutting robot can well avoid the above problems and meet the needs of high-end and automatic development of automobile industry.
According to the “2022-2027 China Laser Cutting Robot Industry Market In-depth Research and Development Prospect Forecast Report” released by the New Scientology Industry Research Center, the global laser cutting robot market size will be about 88.77 million US dollars in 2021. It is expected that the market size will continue to grow rapidly at a compound annual growth rate of about 14.3% from 2022 to 2027, and will reach 198.2 million US dollars by 2027. Globally, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for laser cutting robots, accounting for more than 50% of the demand. This is mainly due to the accelerated transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry in the emerging economic system represented by China in the region.
China is the largest auto producer in the world. In recent years, the demographic dividend of China has gradually receded, and the human cost has been rising. The traditional cutting equipment relies on manual operation, which increases the operating cost of enterprises, and the cutting accuracy and cutting speed are difficult to improve significantly. At the same time, the traditional cutting equipment can not meet the requirements of auto production line automation development. In addition to the automobile industry, the demand for high-end production equipment in the electronics, home appliances, machinery and other industries is also growing rapidly in response to the strategic call of “Made in China 2025”. In this context, the market space of laser cutting robots in China is increasing.
