How it works
Laser welding is one of many industrial laser processes and is used to join various materials together by creating a strong weld between them. This process can be used to create a strong and permanent joint between two types of material. The laser focuses a beam of high-intensity light on the desired area which physically melts two materials together to form a bond between them.
The laser welding method provides ultimately precise heat input on desired area with close to zero welding oxidation. It makes an aesthetic final result without additional processing.
This process can be used in both hand-held precise and large-scale automated workshops, allowing welding speed of 1-5m/min. Laser welding is very effective in processes which require pace, because it is >5 times faster than MIG and >10 times faster than TIG.
Although such technology is mostly used to join metals (stainless-steel, copper, gold, silver and aluminium), it can also process other type of materials such as plastics and silicone.
Aesthetic final result
Laser welding method provides ultimately precision heat input to desired area with narrow full penetration weld which makes an aesthetic final result with close to zero welding oxidation. When thin large sheets are joined, laser welding (in many cases) is the only welding method to avoid thermal and physical distortion of the end product without additional processing. Laser welding is the best welding method to minimize loss of base material properties, such as hardness and strength. Low waste and simple maintenance make this technology user and environmentally friendly.
Laser Welding In Action
- Close to zero physical distortion – when thin large sheets are joined, laser welding avoids thermal and physical distortion of the end product without additional processing.
- Low welding oxidation – Fiber laser welding method provides ultimately precise heat input to desired area with narrow full penetration weld which makes an aesthetic final result.
- Excellent mechanical properties – laser welding does not affect material or its structural properties.
- Easy to operate even for welding beginners – due to laser ability to save up welding parameters (memory).
- Very high efficiency – laser welding is >5 times faster than MIG and >10 times faster to TIG.
- Long and wide sheets welding
- Cost efficient welding solution – low energy consumption.
- Allows welding of sheets with different steel grades and dimensions.
- Relatively high single-time investment costs compared to traditional methods.
- Fiber laser welding requires a tight fit between the parts to be joined. In many cases it is best to redesign the joint locations to present overlapping surfaces.
- Limited material thickness (today’s maximum 10mm single sided).
