The use of laser machines in the appliance industry has enabled manufacturers to produce high-quality products that are efficient, durable, and safe. Laser machines offer several advantages over traditional manufacturing methods, including increased precision, speed, and versatility. They are widely used in the production of appliances, from small household appliances to large commercial-grade equipment.
Laser processing is to irradiate the laser beam onto the surface of the work-piece to remove and melt the material with high energy of the laser, and to change the surface properties of the object. Because laser processing is the non-contact machining on the work-piece with little damage, high efficiency, no pollution, high precision, small heat affected zone advantages, therefore it is suitable for light and beautiful home appliances manufacturing. It can be of various metal and non-metal processing, especially the processing of high hardness, high brittleness and high melting point materials.
•For example, it is applied to the cutting and welding of alloy boxes of washing machines, refrigerators, air conditioners, etc., deep carving and cleaning of moulds.
•laser coating anti-rust on inner and outer walls of microwave ovens, disinfection cabinets, etc.; cladding of metal structures of large household appliances after wear.
•shells of household appliances Marking of operation instructions and brand logos; drilling and cutting of metal parts and plastic parts; micro-drilling and micro-welding of electrical internal circuit boards.
•Laser additive manufacturing (3D printing) is applied to the production of valves and other core parts, etc.
- From the Market Point of View
- From the Aesthetic Point of View
The demand for home appliances not only needs to be durable, but also needs to be elegant. With laser technology, the graphics, text and sequence of marking on household appliances are fine, clear and wearable. The appliance produced by laser technology is easily accepted by the market, and is more popular with consumers!
Laser marking machines are used to engrave product information, logos, and other markings onto appliance parts. This is particularly useful in the identification and traceability of components throughout the production process. Compared with traditional mechanical engraving, chemical corrosion, screen printing, printing ink, laser marking has the advantages of low cost, high flexibility, computer control system, and the firm and permanent feature of the laser mark on the surface of the work-piece is its outstanding feature.Laser marking machine can engrave items fine, the smallest line width of up to 0.04mm. The markings are clear, durable and beautiful.
- From the Technical Point of View
The traditional cutting, mechanical cutting, oxygen acetylene torch, spark cutting, toothless saw cutting, water jet cutting (including emery), plasma torch technology, are gradually being replaced by modern laser technology.
Laser Cutting: Because it is not visible by light beam instead of the traditional mechanical knife, the mechanical part of laser scalpel and works without contact, and does not work to scratch the surface, and the speed is quick, the incision is smooth, generally without the need for subsequent processing; cutting heat affected zone is small, the deformation of sheet metal a small, narrow kerf (0.1mm~0.3mm); incision without mechanical stress, shear free burr; high machining accuracy, good repeatability, no damage to the material surface; NC programming which could machining arbitrary planar graphs, cutting the whole plate in large format, and no need to open mold, time-saving, very suitable for production and processing home appliances.
Laser Welding: Laser welding machines are used to join various metal parts together, such as in the manufacturing of refrigerators, washing machines, and ovens. The laser beam generates intense heat, which melts and fuses the metal parts, creating strong, precise welds.
