  Laser drilling technology is a laser technology […]


Laser drilling technology is a laser technology that has been put into practical use earlier in laser material processing technology. Laser drilling in sheet metal workshops generally uses pulsed lasers with high energy density and short time. It can process small holes of 1μm. It is especially suitable for processing small holes with a certain angle and thin material. It is also suitable for processing hardness. Deep holes and tiny holes in parts of higher or brittle softer materials.

The laser can realize the drilling of the burner parts of the gas turbine, and the punching effect can realize the three-dimensional direction, and the number can reach thousands. Perforable materials include stainless steel, nichrome, and HASTELLOY based alloys. Laser drilling technology is not affected by the mechanical properties of the material, making automation easier.

Under the development of laser drilling technology, the laser cutting machine realizes the automatic operation. The application in the sheet metal industry has changed the processing method of the traditional sheet metal technology, realized the unmanned operation, greatly improved the production efficiency and realized the whole process. The automatic operation has promoted the development of the sheet metal economy, and has improved the level of the punching effect, and the processing effect is remarkable.
