The badge is one of the corporate logos that everyone in the workplace is familiar with. I think everyone has worn badges of different materials: stainless steel, acrylic, copper, titanium, etc. However, no matter what material it is, it is made and formed through traditional processing technology. As an additive manufacturing and processing enterprise, do we want to have a badge with unique characteristics of additive people?
Recently, Tianjin LiM Laser Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "LiM Laser")Metal 3D printing equipmentA metal 3D printing badge exclusive to the additive person has been produced. The outline of the badge is a cuboid structure of 60mm × 20mm × 20mm. In the printing process, we focused on solving two problems: one is how to ensure the beauty, but also reflect the characteristics of its 3D printing industry; the other is How to take into account its practicality and comfort. In view of these two problems, we use a dot matrix structure with a 2mm package circle and a 0.2mm rod diameter to fill, and then the contour of the breastplate is lattice-processed. The lattice structure is light in weight and high in strength. At the same time, it can also reflect the characteristics of our metal 3D printing industry, which can manufacture complex structures. Through the continuous adjustment of the path parameters of the BP software, the limit size was finally broken through, and the badge product with a diameter of 0.2mm was successfully printed.
This badge is a printing process completed on the LiM-X260 series equipment independently developed by LiM Laser. Two metal materials, high-temperature alloy and titanium alloy, were used respectively, and finally showed a good printing effect. The forming size of LiM-X260 series equipment is 260mm × 260mm × 430mm (including 30mm standard substrate thickness). The equipment adopts modular design and can customize laser power, galvanometer number, forming size, monitoring module, etc. according to customer requirements. Each module is independently designed and widely used in series products with good reliability. The stability of customized products is equivalent to that of standard products. LiM laser also has a consulting team with more than 10 years of accumulated experience in the field of additive manufacturing, which can help customers optimize the process and improve the product qualification rate.
LiM Laser AMS-SLM pre-processing software independently developed by LiM Laser is suitable for the company's own laser selective melting equipment. Its functions include digital model creation, 3D STL part import, 2D CLI profile data import, part movement/rotation/slicing/path planning, etc.
With the accelerated development of the manufacturing industry, enterprises have increasingly stringent requirements for mold accuracy, structural complexity, production cycle and cost, and traditional mold manufacturing technology can no longer fully meet market demand. Among the many new technologies, metal 3D printing technology brings a new development direction for the mold industry with its unique technical advantages.
Strengthening management is the eternal theme of enterprise development. As the domestic head of metal 3D printing equipment manufacturer, LiM Laser fully implements lean management requirements and takes quality management as the top priority. In this process, LiM Laser Science uses "5M1E1I" and other analytical tools to solve problems and improve methods, and on this basis, it has established a complete quality management system to promote the high-quality development of the enterprise.
