Laser welding provides high-speed, low-heat input fusion welding for thermally sensitive or magnetic enclosed parts. The precise control and high energy density of a laser allows Custom Laser to provide weld penetration as low as 0.010″ and up to 0.225″ depth in a wide variety of similar and dissimilar materials. Since laser welding produces a fusion weld, fluxes, fillers and contaminates are not introduced into the weld zone, producing a consistent and clean bond.
Advantages of Laser Welding
- Small width-to-root ratio
- Low heat input
- Minimal distortion
- Higher rate of speed than conventional welding
- No fillers or fluxes
- Magnetic field will not affect beam
One of the greatest advantages of laser welding comes in the small weld seam left behind after bonding. With the precision of laser welds, nearly seamless welds are possible, allowing for nonporous and continuous welds that are easy to smooth and finish and reduce the possibility of premature wear or failure.
