Laser welding or laser beam welding is one of the most widely known, accurate types of welding processes. It is a non-contact, high power density welding process used to join multiple pieces of material together using energy emanating from a laser beam. Aerospace, defense and military, medical, electronics, petrochemical refining, communications and energy are some of the common areas where laser welding techniques are applied extensively.
Low power control is established through minimal heat inputs, which process consistent weld depths from 0.001 to 0.250 inches. We possess capabilities to undertake precision laser welding of foils, thin sensor diaphragms, and all other components, for which accurate weld depths are necessary. Our ability to undertake precision welding for dissimilar metals to perfection without the use of additional filler materials illustrates the versatility of our processes.
|Cost Effective||No physical constraints of an enclosure or vacuum chamber enables simplified setup, rapid cycling, and less complex single station tooling.|
|Low Power Control||Precision welding of foils, thin sensor diaphragms and other critical components that demand consistent weld depths from 0.001" to 0.250" processed with minimal heat input.|
|Low Heat||Pulsed lasers can help keep critical electronics and other components cool.|
|Versatility||and dissimilar metals can be welded without the need for additional filler materials.|
