Metal pipes are widely used in different laser pointer industries. The original formed blanks of general pipes are often 10 meters or even 20 meters in length. After being distributed to various industries, they need to be processed into parts of different shapes and sizes due to different application scenarios, which meet the needs of different industries. The three main processes of metal pipes are: cutting, bending and welding.
The steel pipe output in 2019 was 8417.6 inches, an annual increase of 8.7%, accounting for more than 50% of the world’s total output, and it is also the world’s largest steel pipe consumer. Steel pipes generally include surface-treated ordinary steel pipes and stainless steel pipes. In practical applications, the work demand for pipe cutting is very large.
In electric power, engineering construction steel frame structure, home construction, door and window guardrail, automobile/bicycle/motorcycle, agricultural machinery, sports facilities, etc., almost most industrial sectors use a large number of steel pipes. In recent years, the application of stainless steel pipes in sanitary ware and furniture has attracted particular attention.
In the past, the traditional stainless steel pipe cutting segment was cut with a saw blade, from manual to semi-automatic, and then to fully automatic. The saw blade cutting technology has reached the ceiling, and the pipe cutting efficiency cannot be improved. At this time, green laser pointer tube cutting technology began to enter the pipe industry, which is very suitable for cutting various metal pipes. It has the characteristics of high automation, high efficiency and high displacement. For pipes of different materials, there is no need to replace the corresponding saw blades, anyway. “One size fits all”, no need to stop in the middle, very suitable for mass production.
Laser cutting has quickly replaced many traditional and low-efficiency mechanical cutting. Now the laser pipe cutting machine continues to add new functions, such as automatic feeding, clamping, rotation, bevel cutting, suitable for round pipes, square pipes, flat pipes, etc. Laser cutting meets almost all requirements for pipe cutting.
