Status and development trend of laser fine machining technology

Zhang wei, deputy director of Shanghai laser technology research institute, attended the summit and delivered the keynote speech of “laser fine processing technology status and development trend”. In recent years, with the rising demand of consumer electronics market, the precision of optical electronic devices is becoming more and more demanding.

At present, domestic fine processing is still in the beginning stage, there are two main problems: one is the light source, namely the stability and reliability of picosecond and femtosecond laser pointer light source, domestic light source products can really meet the needs of system integration is relatively few; The second is processing technology, including structure-oriented processing technology, which directly determines the overall structure of the equipment and has a great impact on downstream processing.

Zhang wei said that under the market demand’s driving force, the advanced laser technology unceasingly accelerates the industrial application. 2017 was the peak year of the laser market, with a total market of about 12.5 billion us dollars, of which the total revenue of industrial lasers exceeded 3.4 billion us dollars. At present, China has become the world’s largest market for laser processing systems, accounting for more than 30% of the total market share, and still maintains a high growth rate. In terms of industrial laser systems, the process of localization is accelerating, and the export ratio continues to increase.

In order to strengthen industrial development, it is necessary to integrate resources and improve the whole structure of upstream and downstream industries. Especially in the upstream materials, devices, production process more efforts, so as to get rid of the dependence on foreign manufacturers.
