In the background of transformation and upgrading of the traditional manufacturing industry, Laser technology is playing a leading role in Laser processing and smart manufacturing. As the leading company in the industry of domestic Laser processing, Han’s Laser always keeps uprising trends in the company performance. For further understanding about the development of Laser processing technology and the secret of Han’s Laser excellent performance, reporters from OFweek Laser was honored to be invited into the headquarter of Han’s Laser and took an interview with the General Manager of Han’s Laser Smart Equipment, Mr Chen Yan.
 
 

 
The following 10 questions are as followed:
 
1.Q by OFweek Laser: Han’s Laser achieved its goal and has excellent performance in the last half year. As the biggest division of Han’s Laser Group and now renamed as Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group, what is the detail of the excellent performance?
A: In this half year, Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group has excellent performance for over 40 percent increase for overall sales revenue. We achieved the goal of high growing speed of new order amounts which is closely related to the great improvement of the overall operational efficiency for company performance. With the smooth opening of Smart Equipment 3rd Factory, the overall performance of Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group will be estimated to get over 30 percents of annual company performance.
 
2.Q by OFweek Laser: Could you tell us the detail of Han’s Laser company performance in oversea market?
A: The oversea market is important in Han’s Laser Long-term development strategy. And years ago, Han’s Laser has already stepped up into the range of oversea market. And currently in a smooth operation, Han’s Laser takes great breakthrough in the Asia surrounding areas and Northern and Southern American market. In the future, there will be more factory plants and infrastructures built in the oversea site and achieved the goal of oversea annual sales revenue in 40 percents growing up in the estimation. Now the oversea market only occupies 10 percent of the gross sales of the total oversea sales.
 
3.Q by OFweek Laser: How does Han’s Laser survive in the fierce competition and still keep its leading status among those excellent Laser enterprises?
Chen Yan: a fierce competition means a larger size of market. In the past few years, Laser cutting and welding equipment maintained a super high speed of development every year. The original sales volumes of laser cutting machine rise up to near 20 million from thousands till last year in the domestic market and estimate to reach 20 thousands sets of laser machines. Driven by a great demand of market, every enterprise can position its own customers from the market. Han’s Laser is positioned itself as the option for servicing the high-end users. Therefore, though currently Laser cutting machine is sold in the red sea market. It won’t cause any negative effect on Han’s Laser itself because the annual investment of R&D of Han’s Laser is above 8 percent of revenue. In fact, Han’s Laser is a technology-driven company which is not similar to the market-driven companies. For the high-end users, the cutting machines from Han’s Laser are the first choice so currently Han’s Laser still can maintain a higher increasing speed in a really fierce competing environment with higher profit. What’s more, technically speaking, there will be always innovation on the original type.
 
4.OFweek Laser: What’s the gap between Trumpf and Bystronic, those Top Laser Brands in the world?
Chen Yan: From the perspective of Laser technology, Han’s Laser maintained in a same horizontal line with them. Han’s Laser is one of the several global companies that is vertically integrated the CNC systems, software and light source and functional components. Especially in machine tools manufacturing, Han’s Laser established a full set of production process from machining to refine processing, which the core technology of the whole cutting machine tools is under control. And when there is any urgent cases happening in the customers’ site, Han’s Laser can act quick response and provide excellent service that proves strong competitiveness. Concluded from the past few years’ performance, Han’s Laser in the domestic market is always outstanding compared to other international competitors whom basically fading out the domestic market one by one. In the realm of the Laser cutting, the performance-price ratio of Han’s Laser product can rank on the front line.
 
5.Question By OFweek Laser: Han’s Laser leading the trend of 15 kW Laser Cutting Machine and what are the advantages of this equipment compared with   products?
Chen Yan: In the IMTS 2017, Han’s Laser made its first international debut for 15kW Laser cutting machine.  This year this product realized the batch application and will sent to the customers’ site one by one. 15kW Laser Cutting Machine is processing equipment prepared for individual processed enterprises. Compared with the laser cutting machine below 10 kW, this type of Laser machine has better efficiency and faster speed which means greater advantages. This type of product is mainly applied in cutting thicker stainless steel, mild steel and aluminum and other materials that greatly improved the speed and efficiency. However, currently ultra-high power laser cutting machine still gets lots of problems to solve out. For example, it is a tough test for the endurance of the functional components and it asks more technical improvement.
 
6.Question By OFweek Laser: Why is special about Han’s Self-made 10 KW Cutting Head so popular in Laser and the problems happening in the research and development period?
Chen Yan: it is a big problem for all the global enterprises to produce a 10 kW Laser cutting head and basically there are no enterprises that can make a mature and formed cutting head product. In this background, Han’s Laser has its own technical development on the structure design and optical device for a customized demand. Nowadays, Han’s Laser can basically fulfill the production demand from customers. More crucially, when there is any problems happened in this kind of cutting head, company will act quick response and maintain urgently which can create greater value for the customers.
 
7.Question By OFweek Laser: any layouts on high Efficiency Laser Cutting Machines and theirs development?
Chen Yan: Nine years ago, Han’s Laser has already started layout of fiber Laser machine. Han’s Laser is a real self-supporting and self-sufficient enterprise in the core technology of fiber laser machines after the following of IPG and second global company in the world.
In the early period of 2015, 3 kW of Han’s Laser Machine has already passed the acceptance check of National Expert Group of China Federation of Machinery Industry. At that time, the 3kW technology of Han’s Laser is absolutely playing a leading role in the domestic market. For the strategic cooperative relationship of Han’s Laser and IPG, technically IPG provides a great support in the overall costs. Han’s purpose of long term cooperation with IPG is steadfast and will continue to promote the new Han’s Laser machine in patches one by one below 6 kW.
 
8. Question By OFweek Laser: what’s the understanding about the domestic Laser industry development?
Chen Yan: I think that in the future the development of Han’s Laser industry will maintain a better growth trends. The reason is that the domestic manufacturing is now transformed into high-end users. In the smart manufacturing transformation process, the application of the Laser technology is inevitable, especially the customization and FMS. Supposed that the laser processing part is missing, it is difficult to operate the customization and FMS. Therefore, for growth in the application of Laser technology in the future industry, I hold a strong optimistic attitude.
 
9. Question By OFweek Laser:  What is the current situation of the Laser industry? What is the potential breakthrough in the future? 
Chen Yan: Actually the real problem is that now it is under a disordered competition status for the domestic Laser industry. For now hundreds of thousands of middle-power factories are under a red sea market with fierce competition. The fierce way of assembling the components without technology advantage and selling way in low prices is unsustainable in the future market.
In the coming years, it is hard to imagine the violent technical innovation brought by the changing of light source in 2008 and 2009 but the development trend for smart cutting and FMS is unstoppable. For example, the application of AI, the organic combination of Laser cutting and welding is very obvious in the future technology development path. And another trend will be FMS of Laser cutting that can achieve the benefit maximization of continuous production and unattended operation and patch production. All of these are the future goal of smart manufacturing.
 
10. Question By OFweek Laser: Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group has an excellent performance and what is the future plan and layout for sightseeing future? Any new targets?
Chan Yan: The reason why Han’s Laser Smart Equipment Group has such good company performance is that it all comes from the devotion of the engineer R&D team. Over one third of the employees are engineers hired by Han’s Laser. Great investment in R&D will get abundant fruits from the research and strengthen up the competiveness of Han’s products.
There is a long term plan in smart manufacturing industry for the future development. In the realm of metal processing, no matter for manufacturer in production or users in processing and self-employed businessman, there will be a full set of solution providing for users in welding, cutting or 3D printing or Laser cleaning for company’s long term development.
