Microscopic laser welding uses a concentrated heat source, allowing for precise, controlled weld placement. This type of welding is often used for medical devices, molds, and our micro laser welder technicians can provide material build-ups to revise, repair or join parts together.
The spot size of the laser can be set from .005” to .100. The depth of penetration is proportional to the amount of power supplied but is also dependent on the location of the focal point.
Control of the laser beam power supply enables our technicians to join and coil two wires with a diameter of .0015.
Controlling the power supply also allows us to control sink and produce airtight welds.
Micro Weld offers both manual and CNC programmable laser beam welding services. Manual micro laser welding requires precise, careful craftsmanship to join or repair parts. CNC laser beam welding offers the control and superior accuracy required for low to high volume production. Our micro laser welder technicians can advise you on which method works better for your project.
MANUAL VS CNC BEAM WELDING
LASER WELDING SERVICES FOR PRECISION AND HIGH-QUALITY WELDS
Laser welding has revolutionized the field of manufacturing and fabrication with its precision and versatility. It’s a cutting-edge process using a high-energy laser beam to join materials through melting and solidification. The concentrated heat of the laser beam creates a small, localized weld zone, resulting in strong, reliable welds. Laser welding has become an indispensable technique for achieving intricate, high-quality welding in modern industries.
ADVANTAGES OF LASER WELDING
Relying on professional services for laser welding offers numerous advantages. By partnering with a laser welding service provider, you gain access to state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in laser welding techniques. Professional welders are well-versed in handling complex welding projects, ensuring optimal results and minimizing errors.
Outsourcing laser welding services also brings cost-effectiveness and time savings compared to setting up an in-house welding facility. Investing in high-quality laser welding equipment can be substantial, and maintenance costs can be burdensome. By leveraging the services of a specialized laser welding company, you can avoid these upfront expenses and focus on your core business activities.
APPLICATIONS OF LASER WELDING
Laser welding finds extensive applications across various industries. In the automotive sector, laser welding is used to join car body components, ensure structural integrity, and improve overall safety. Aerospace companies use laser welding to fabricate critical components, such as engine parts and turbine blades, to withstand extreme conditions.
Medical device manufacturers utilize laser welding to create precise, durable joints in implants, surgical instruments, and other medical equipment. The electronics industry benefits from laser welding's ability to join delicate components without causing thermal damage.
These examples merely scratch the surface of laser welding's potential. From seam welding and spot welding to hermetic sealing and micro welding, the applications are vast and continually expanding.
LASER WELDING PROCESS AND TECHNIQUES
Microscopic laser beam welding services encompass different processes and techniques tailored to specific applications. Conduction mode welding is commonly used for thin materials, providing controlled heat input and minimizing distortion. On the other hand, keyhole mode welding is suitable for thicker materials, allowing for deeper penetration and stronger welds.
Various laser welding techniques achieve specific weld configurations or material requirements. Continuous wave (CW) welding ensures a constant heat input, ideal for applications demanding continuous welding. Pulsed laser welding delivers high-energy pulses rapidly, allowing precise control over heat input. Beam oscillation techniques provide uniform heat distribution for large weld areas or specific joint designs.
Laser welding is compatible with numerous materials, including metals and certain non-metals. Commonly welded metals include steel, aluminum, titanium, and their alloys. Laser welding is also suitable for certain plastics and polymers. However, material selection for laser welding requires careful consideration of compatibility, reflectivity, and thickness factors. Experienced laser welding specialists can guide you in choosing the most suitable materials for your application.
MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR LASER WELDING
LASER WELDING EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY
Laser welding relies on advanced equipment and cutting-edge technology to achieve precise, reliable welds. Laser sources provide the high-energy laser beams required for welding, with options including fiber lasers, solid-state lasers, and hybrid systems. Optics and control systems ensure the accurate delivery of the laser beam to the weld zone, enabling optimal weld quality.
Micro laser welding technology advancements have led to improved performance, efficiency, and flexibility. Fiber lasers, known for their high beam quality and power stability, offer enhanced precision and speed. Solid-state lasers provide excellent reliability and are suitable for various welding applications. Hybrid laser welding systems combine laser welding with other welding processes, such as microscopic TIG welding, offering the advantages of both.
The quality of laser welds is paramount to ensure the final product's structural integrity and reliability. Laser welding specialists employ rigorous quality control measures and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques to verify the integrity of welds, including visual inspections, ultrasonic testing, X-ray inspections, and other industry-standard methods.
Adherence to industry standards is crucial in laser welding to ensure compliance with safety regulations and quality requirements. By working with a reputable laser welding company, you can be confident that your welds undergo a thorough inspection and meet the highest quality standards.
