Laser processing technology is a new type of green manufacturing technology, which has obvious advantages over traditional machining. In recent years, the application fields of laser technology have been expanding. In addition to traditional fields such as automobiles, ships, aviation, nuclear industry, machinery manufacturing, steel, textile, petroleum, and laser processing centers, it is also used in information and communication data storage, medical beauty, and scientific research. Emerging fields such as military, instrument sensing, display, and additive manufacturing.
Jiang Xiuqing, General Manager of Gangchun Laser
Against this background, the editor of OFweek LaserNet was fortunate to interview Mr. Jiang Xiuqing, the general manager of Gangchun Laser Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. at the Shanghai Industry Fair, which is known as the "industrial vane" of China. And related technology applications were interviewed.
Regardless of the domestic or international market, the laser head market has always been dominated by German and American products. Although domestic laser heads have developed rapidly in recent years, they are mainly concentrated in low-value-added medium-power laser heads. Although high-power laser heads have also made some breakthroughs, they still rely on imported products in practical applications. Faced with such a situation, Jiang Xiuqing said, "In order to obtain a better R & D environment and technical environment, we have set up a R & D center in the United States, which specializes in optical path design, lens, mold design and production, and laser head R & D design. In China. There are two main reasons for R & D in the United States: first, to recruit top technical talent, and second, because many American R & D engineers are unwilling to work in China. "

As we all know, the laser head is one of the core components of the laser cutting machine and laser welding machine , and the core of the laser head is the lens, which determines the quality of a laser head. It is understood that the high-power laser head of Gangchun above 6000 watts uses aspherical lenses. This kind of lens is difficult to process and has high technical requirements. It needs to be processed by a six-axis processing machine. However, the laser head made of this lens has the advantages of good life, good light spot, good penetrating power and good cutting effect.
In addition to the high requirements for lens selection, President Jiang also mentioned an interesting comparison: "At present, domestic companies that make laser heads have more than ten or twenty after-sales service personnel, while Gangchun has only two because of Gangchun's products. Good quality basically does not require after-sales. This makes the cost of R & D in the United States higher, but the overall cost is actually very low. Each batch of our products will be tested, including abrasion resistance test, life test, cutting test Wait, it will be shipped only after the test is no problem, ensuring product quality. "

At the end of the interview, President Jiang talked about his many years of experience and experience in the industry. He said: "Do not be short-sighted in doing business. You must not worry about making products. You must ensure product quality. No one can say that there is a quality problem. This is a high-voltage line and it must not be touched. This is my principle. For us to live a wonderful life in the ordinary and short life, we have to fight, we must do it, do not think too much, do what others dare not do, make it, and make it wonderful . "
Finally, I have something to say. Challenges and opportunities coexist in any industry, and the same is true for subdivided fields such as laser heads. No matter the elderly or newcomers, only by constantly innovating and improving themselves in the competition can they be invincible. For domestic laser head companies, only by clinging to talents and ensuring product quality can they gain an advantage in the competition. Talent is the key factor for product development, production, quality improvement and upgrading, and product quality is the lifeline of an enterprise. Only by strictly controlling quality can we survive and survive well in the severe market competition. As President Jiang said, quality is a high-voltage line and it is absolutely untouchable.
