Full screen hot market can become a laser cutting opportunity

  While handset makers are competing for a full-screen mobile phone market, another industry is quietly in full swing.

  With the introduction of the IPHONEX full screen mobile phone, the concept of "full screen" has finally formed the current prairie fire from the previous fire of stars. According to CINNOResearch's expectations, by 2018 full screen in the smartphone market penetration will rise to 50%, followed by the gradual increase to 93% in 2021, the fiery degree is evident.

  Although, nowadays full-screen flattery, but its corresponding is the complexity and hard workmanship. In general, the design of full-screen mobile phone can be divided into non-special-shaped screen and non-shaped screen. Driven by IPHONEX, handset manufacturers to the development of non-special-shaped screen to the special-shaped screen, while the special-shaped screen must be shaped cutting program to achieve.

  At present, the main cutting pattern on the market is shaped cutting wheel cutting, laser cutting two. Traditional rectangular cutting is mainly used in the way of mechanical cutter wheel, with the milling process, using the method of cutting the screen at right angles, the phone's overall four corners are still rounded arc. This method has no problem of high temperature, does not lead to the problems of framing yellowing and hot spots, etc. However, the mechanical cutter wheel starts to exhibit problems of slow cutting speed, low precision and large burr damage during profiled cutting.
The emerging laser cutting in the above aspects compared to the advantages of mechanical cutting wheel cutting more obvious because of the high laser cutting edge, the edge effect is good, and can automatically separate waste, no residue, cutting speed, not limited by the processing shape, so , Laser cutting technology is expected to become the mainstream of cutting cutting edge technology.
So to speak, profiled cutting is a cutting-edge cutting-edge technology that requires boundless sophistication, and laser cutting is the technology that supports it. Unlike traditional cutting tools, laser cutting uses a high-power density laser beam to irradiate the material to be cut. The material is quickly heated to the vaporization temperature and evaporates to form a hole. As the beam moves toward the material, the holes continuously form a narrow width (Such as 0.1mm or so) kerf, to complete the material cutting.

  In fact, laser cutting was originally limited to the high cost and high-tech content of laser cutting. In the field of smart phones, laser cutting is still only applied to some high-end flagship handsets and has not really gained popularity. However, thanks to the full screen boom, the laser cutting industry in 2017 has made great strides - both technically and industry chain formation.
Take Han laser for example. Han's Laser is the most powerful laser enterprise in China, and its picosecond laser cutting technology is very suitable for the field of laser profile cutting. Coupled with the increased supply demand, Han's rapid development this year, strong performance growth, laser intelligent equipment sales exceeded a new high. Data show that Han's total revenue in the third quarter operating income of 8,914,357,034.09 yuan, operating profit of 1,678,577,360.58 yuan, total profit of 1,639,000,968.93 yuan, attributable to shareholders of listed companies net The profit was RMB1,502,154,124.58, up by 78.69%, 163.58%, 121.22% and 137.31% over the same period of last year respectively.

  From which to find out some clues:

  With the advent of a full screen era, the application of a large number of full-screen smartphones indirectly sets higher requirements on laser cutting technology and drives the development of laser cutting technology.

  On the other hand, the upsurge of full screen, the most direct impact on the panel industry is significantly increased panel demand. Demand brought by the market has also contributed to the growth of laser cutting equipment sales.

  And those who master the advanced technology industry leader will be the first to benefit.
For the laser cutting industry, these are undoubtedly good news.

  Of course, we can not just look at the good part, but ignore the problem. Although China's laser cutting industry has been developing rapidly in recent years, the high-end market of laser cutting equipment has been dominated by Japan, the United States and other developed countries. However, domestic laser cutting has been lacking in many high-end technologies, services and channels. Only Can hover in the low-end market.

  Today's top priorities, enhance the technical content of laser cutting, improve service, broaden channels and improve core competitiveness is the key to laser cutting into the high-end market.
This is also reflected in the "Investor Relations Activities" of Han's Laser: "The analysis on the causes of this year's outburst: Last year's R & D investment was large, and expenses and expenses increased more, such as investment in OLEDs, consumer electronics and power batteries. In fact, the growth started last year. This year's performance is based on last year's foundation. The revenue is not only for consumer electronics, but for high-power PCBs and so on. PCB has confirmed its revenue growth of more than 30% As of September, PCB orders increased by 40% compared with the same period of last year, meanwhile, the management level is still rising and costs are well controlled, and R & D investment is expected to increase this year compared with last year.

  In short, if we can better solve the existing problems, coupled with the current domestic and global full screen market, the fiery potential of China's laser cutting market prospects can be very promising. So in the full screen era next year before the official arrival of enterprises can seize the opportunity of laser cutting may go further.
