New Equipment, New Advantages, New Development | Dr. Guan Kai Talks to MM "Insight" Program, Talking about the Development of Additive Material Industry
Author： LiM Laser
Additive manufacturing combines 3D printing with industrial production, creating a new processing method, and has irreplaceable advantages in the manufacturing of complex structural parts. Recently, Dr. Guan Kai, general manager of Tianjin LiM Laser Technology Co., Ltd., accepted an exclusive interview with MM's "Insight" program and expressed a clear view on the hot topic of additive manufacturing.
"Insight" program is a high-end video interview program launched by MM "Modern Manufacturing" in 2020. In view of the major events and hot spots in the market, industry and society in a period of time, industry leaders are invited to conduct interviews and exchange views. It aims to output its own experience energy, establish industry confidence, and show corporate culture and brand.
What is the current situation of domestic additive manufacturing? What are the problems still facing? What are the typical trends of future development? What are the advantages and disadvantages of additive manufacturing technology and equipment in domestic and foreign fields?
What is the original intention of Tianjin LiM Laser? What are the core competitiveness and technical advantages? What innovations have LiM Laser made in the fields of laser cladding and selective laser melting?
What are the innovation points and industry application characteristics of the latest model LiM-X800 of LiM laser?
What are the key tasks of LiM laser in the next stage? What are the specific implementation goals?
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.
