During the 12th Five-Year, technologies like near-net-shape and integration have become the new development objectives of manufacturing enterprises. The ten core industries of Chinese manufacturing industry - construction, mechanism (automobile), shipbuilding, railway, petrochemical, water & electricity, metallurgy, boiler pressure vessel, home appliance, container, all use steel as the main raw material, and adopt cutting and welding as their main ways and means of production, so the upgrading of Chinese CNC cutting industry gets new opportunity.
For Chinese CNC cutting industry, the breakthrough of the latest and most probable near-net-shape technology in manufacturing industry of advanced equipment will be 3D CNC groove cutting technology and equipment. Through 3D CNC groove cutting, near-net-shape is achieved, thus automation and industrialization of steel CNC cutting and welding are accomplished. And the traditional behind production mode, which does vertical cutting first, then proceeds secondary processing of welding groove by hand, mechanism or robot teaching will be upgraded to one-time completion of CNC cutting of 3D welding groove. On this basis, optimum layout technology, MES steel logistics and enterprise management system are integrated as three-in-one to realize the integrated platform of industrialization and informationization of Chinese CNC cutting industry, thus to effectively enhance the productivity of steel CNC cutting and utilization of steel, and to realize green environmental protection and energy savings.
Li Hao, graduated from Tsinghua University, master's degree, Legal person/General manager of FastCAM (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (Abbr. FastCAM). He has worked in Australia Fagan Micro-processor System Co., Ltd.,and specialized in market development and industrial application of steel cutting programming nesting software. During that period, he has accumulated plentiful professional knowledge of marketing and industrial application of steel cutting industry, and was familiar with production process of steel cutting in foreign material making center, and he has also mastered proprietary technology of steel CNC cutting and optimum nesting software. He created FastCAM to specially develope management software of Chinese steel cutting production. At present, FastCAM has successfully developed ten CNC cutting software for improvement of cutting efficiency, such as FastCAM automatic programming nesting software, FastFRAME tube lattice steel manufacturing software, FastPIPE CNC tube cutting software, etc. This has made remarkable achievements of saving materials and reducing costs for enterprises
