Laser Welding

Pulsed lasers and continuous wave (CW) lasers, among others, are gradually replacing old welding methods that have become outdated.

Whether for laser autogenous welding, hybrid laser-arc welding, or robot arm welding (laser flight welding), fiber lasers offer several advantages:

  • The laser beam allows for high precision in welding and precise control over the depth and width of the weld. This advantage enables the welding of parts with very strict tolerances.
  • It is fast, reducing production costs and increasing efficiency.
  • Since the laser beam is used at a distance, there is no direct contact with the parts to be welded, reducing the risk of contamination or damage to the parts.
  • The heat produced by the laser, along with its speed, can reduce deformation in welded parts, which is especially important for heat-sensitive components.
  • Fiber laser welding can be easily integrated into robotic or automated systems, allowing for more efficient and reproducible part production.
  • Compared to other welding methods, fiber laser welding can be more energy-efficient, especially for smaller parts.

Fiber lasers can be used for welding a wide variety of materials, including metals, plastics, and composites. These lasers are also proving very useful for microprecision welding, laser spot welding, etc. By integrating fiber laser welding into manufacturing processes, companies can improve their efficiency, quality, and profitability.
