Laser since the 20th century, following the atomic energy, semiconductor, computer after another major inventions, technology has great potential, so some experts believe that the future will be replaced by the era of electronic technology light technology era, the protagonist of this era of optical technology is the laser.
Today mainly used for laser material processing, laser applications, this is the most promising way abroad for laser processing technology has been developed over twenty kinds. Because the laser has a good controllability and time controlled space, the object of processing materials, shapes, sizes and degrees of freedom are large processing environment, coupled with the current laser processing and computer numerical control technology has become the perfect combination of the most efficient automated processing equipment, but also the production of key technologies.
Now mature laser processing technologies: laser storage technology, laser technology to re-balance, laser rapid prototyping technology, laser treatment, laser welding technology, surface treatment technology, laser cutting, laser marking, laser etching technology, laser trimming techniques, laser drilling, laser cleaning technology and laser marking technologies.
Laser cutting technology is mainly used for metal and nonmetal materials processing between. Laser cutting technology can not only effectively improve processing efficiency, improve product quality, but also reduce production costs. Common cutting technology and continuous pulse laser processing laser cutting, the former applies to metallic materials, which applies to non-metallic materials, and the latter the most widely used, is currently the most important applications of laser cutting technology areas.
Speaking of laser processing, laser drilling techniques have to mention previously perforated punch substances are optional higher hardness than substance punch, low efficiency, encounter great hardness of a material such as diamond, you want to punch is very difficult to complete. When the laser used in drilling technology, no matter how hard the material can be easily completed and laser drilling technique with high accuracy, versatility, high efficiency, low cost, and the only drawback is that the laser-drilled hole conical, cylindrical rather than mechanical drilling.
