Application of fiber laser cutting machine in elevator market

According to statistics, China is a country with particularly large elevator consumption and ownership in the world. In 2016, the domestic elevator ownership was nearly 4.3 million units, and 65% of the global elevators were sold in China.

Everyone knows that the common materials used in elevators are stainless steel plates and membrane materials. The finish requirements of these materials are relatively high. With the increasing demand in the market, the cycle of new elevator products is getting shorter and shorter. There are many types of sheet metal parts in the elevator market, and some even need to be customized according to customer needs. Tonnage and molds are also limited, and there are multiple stations. Stamping machine tools sometimes fail to meet the processing requirements, and sometimes the mold manufacturing cycle is long and the production cycle is extended, so it is gradually replaced by fiber laser cutting machines. So what is the difference between traditional elevator processing methods and fiber laser technology? How did fiber laser cutting break out of the elevator market?

1. Traditional processing methods
In the past, the whole machine factory basically used multi-station punching machines to process plates, mainly including turning, milling, planing, drilling, grinding and other processing procedures. They mainly relied on mechanical external forces to use harder tools to complete the peeling process of the excess metal layer. The program is complicated, the workpiece is easy to change, and consumes a lot of manpower, material and financial resources.
2. CO2 laser processing method
CO2 laser cutting machine is a laser processing equipment that the domestic elevator industry has begun to use. Using optical, electrical, chemical and other non-mechanical energy to complete the peeling process of materials, it is possible to use lower hardness materials to realize the processing of high hardness materials. Compared with traditional processing methods, laser processing has unique advantages such as non-contact, easy processing, safety and environmental protection.
3. Fiber laser cutting machine occupy the elevator market
Elevator manufacturing is basically made of stainless steel of about 3mm, and the use of CO2 laser cutting machine processing consumes a lot of power and gas. The CO2 laser cutting machine has been unable to keep up with the development of the elevator industry due to its high cost and complicated debugging. The new fiber laser cutting machine has extremely fast speed, ultra-low operating cost, can cut high reflective materials such as copper and aluminum, and has significant advantages such as no external optical path. It is gradually replacing CO2 laser cutting machines and has become the tool of choice in the elevator processing industry.
