Laser welding to help high-speed rail body "no scar"

2017-12-28 09:16:02
  High-speed rail body how to "scarless" welding? When can we get rid of dependence on foreign imports? Yesterday afternoon, localization of laser welding locomotive equipment for demonstration in Wenzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center. The demonstration was initiated by Pentium Laser and invited domestic and foreign experts as well as domestic large locomotive manufacturers to conduct in-depth discussions and tentatively reached the intention of cooperation and R & D.

  It is reported that "joint development of laser stainless steel locomotive body welding equipment," the project proposed by the Pentium Laser (Wenzhou) Co., Ltd. proposed. In addition to Pentium, this project also undertakes the CSR Group Qingdao Sifang Locomotive & Rolling Stock Co., Ltd., Nanjing Automobile Co., Ltd., Nanjing Puzhen Vehicle Co., Ltd., Beijing University of Technology and Wenzhou University, covering large locomotive companies and universities in China.

  So, what exactly is "laser stainless steel locomotive body welding"? In fact, it is the locomotive's stainless steel skin with the internal skeleton welded from the inside up. Unlike traditional welding, it does not allow the outer surface of the skin to see the weld marks and thermal deformation, the appearance of aesthetics demanding, like "no scar suture." This welding method is widely used in locomotive manufacturing in developed countries such as Europe, the United States and Japan and has become one of the important technologies for manufacturing new high-end locomotives.

  "The research on this project has many meanings. It not only has broad application prospects in the market, but also if the successful R & D will fill the gaps in the domestic market and get rid of the monopoly of foreign equipment, it will promote the development of the entire locomotive production industry in China." Pentium Laser (Wenzhou) Co., Ltd. General Manager Wu let big said. It is reported that as China's high-end motorcycle body manufacturing process of the key, the current laser welding equipment all rely on imports. The imported equipment is expensive, usually 4 million -800 million. At the same time, the cost of repair service is high, and the annual service fee is about 10% of the equipment price. This directly increases the locomotive manufacturing cost in our country and limits the competitiveness of locomotive manufacturing in the international market.

  Kuang Lian-ting, deputy director of Wenzhou Science and Technology Bureau, said that the project was forward-looking and believed that technological breakthroughs could be achieved through the powerful combination of Pentium and other units. At the same time, he also suggested that as soon as possible to determine the focus of the project and the design of the big framework, we must first focus on provinces and major scientific and technological special applications, and thus the pursuit of national awards breakthroughs, step by step.

  This demonstration, five units agreed to participate in research and development, the next step will be for further research and development, testing, technology research and further communication.
