Author： LiM Laser
November 9, sponsored by Jung Industrial Media2022 Additive Manufacturing and Laser Processing Technology Forum"held in Shanghai. TSC&LiM Laser was invited to attend and bring a keynote speech.With the presence of industry experts and representatives of various enterprises, on the current 3D printing and laser processing industry cutting-edge technology and application cases to share exchanges, and jointly discuss industry trends.
Gao Peibao, assistant chairman of TSC, deputy general manager of marketing of LiM Laser and master of Materials Engineering of Tsinghua University, made a report on the theme of "Application of metal 3D printing technology in various industries", shared the application case of metal 3D printing process technology to the guests, and discussed the optimization of metal 3D printing parts process structure.
Metal additive manufacturing mainly includes laser selective melting technology (SLM), laser near-net forming technology (LENS), arc additive manufacturing technology (WAAM), which can be used for complex structure forming, local repair of parts, direct manufacturing of large components, large area repair, etc. Gao cited the technical achievements of TSC & LiM Laser in the aerospace, energy and power, automotive, medical and other sophisticated fields of application cases, such as an aero engine afterburner spray rod, the use of metal 3D printing integrated forming, compared with welding splicing scheme, reduce the weld 14, greatly improving the quality and stability of the product; The exhaust connection pipe and manifold of an automobile engine can be rapidly manufactured by using metal 3D printing for prototype trial production, speeding up research and development iterations, and helping enterprises to gain competitiveness.

Combined with the case, the metal 3D printing equipment independently developed by TSC & LiM Laser is introduced in detail. The LiM-X800 equipment recently released by LiM Laser is introduced in this paper. The forming size is 800mmx800mmx1080mm, the host size is only 5.5mx2mx3.7m, the standard six lasers, reserve four sets of optical system interfaces, can be quickly upgraded from six lasers to ten lasers according to demand.

With the rise of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial revolution, intelligent manufacturing has become a hot spot in the field of industrial manufacturing, and metal additive manufacturing technology, as a "potential stock" leading high-tech processing and manufacturing, has attracted much attention in various fields. With the support of the policy, China's additive manufacturing industry has also shifted from high-speed growth to high-quality development, TSC & LiM Laser will follow the development trend of the industry, oriented by the needs of users in various fields, promote the upgrading of metal 3D printing technology, and strive to become a first-class professional technical service providers and equipment manufacturers in China.
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.
