Laser welding is an effective method to join metal construction materials. It has high welding speeds, causes minimal deformation of the joint parts together with a very narrow area affected by heat.
Laser welding technology is applicable for very demanding and precise welds with suitable quality for batch or mass production with automated processes.
The main application areas are the automotive industry, precision engineering, arms production, electrotechnical production (module and connector production), medicaldevices (dental technology, surgical instruments and medical components production), thin metal sheet machining, welded profile and pipe production, production of heat exchangers, shafts, gears, lasers, etc. Lasers can also be used for the repair in a manufacturing operation (tool and mold repair/production).
Most materials weldable by conventional methods can be welded much faster and with better visual results with the aid of lasers .
