Manual laser welding of metals

Welding metal with light

Today, welding is an innovative mounting technique that is used in all areas. While the technique itself is widespread, some of its processes are not yet as well known and underused. Laser welding falls into that category and, despite its false reputation as a complex process, offers many unparalleled advantages in terms of speed, technology and costs.
Compared to traditional manufacturing processes such as resistance spot welding or conventional ARC welding, Fiber Laser Welding offers easy operation, very simple to learn with a fast learning curve, improved energy efficiency, smaller ecological footprint, lower maintenance requirements, less enviremental contamination, improved machine lifetime and faster cycle times for high-volume production.
Consequently, the processing speed is maximized; material costs and operation costs are minimized.
The precision provided by fiber lasers is particularly useful for manufacturers switching to precise, thin-walled and lightweight designs made of light or very resistant materials. Significant weight reduction is achieved by minimizing the size of parts and components via fiber laser welding, while safe engineering is fully enabled by wobble-beam fiber welding.

The Advantages of Laser Welding Over Arc Welding

Product designers and process engineers considering laser welding as an alternative to more conventional types of welding, such as MIG/TIG arc welding, will find each has its plusses and minuses. But for many applications laser welding is a cleaner, more precise, and more controlled method of welding and is especially much faster, cheaper and better controllable.
 

How is laser welding better than TIG?

What are the main benefits from manual laser welding compared to manual TIG welding

Due to the small spot size of the laser, the heat input is typically 200 times lower than with arc welding processes like MIG, MAG or TIG welding.

Laser Welding Increases drastically your ROI (Return-On-Investment)

A Cost Reduction of 70% or more is possible with Laser Welding

SUPER HIGH ROI with Laser Welding

HOW DOES LASER WELDING INFLUENCE PART COSTS?

For most laser welded sheet metal parts, the weld quality and the speed of processing are far superior to conventional welding processes, and this ultimately results in increased profit margins. If you consider the complete sheet metal fabrication process (i.e. cutting, bending, punching and welding), welding and refinishing affect approximately 70 percent of the cost per part. This is mainly due to the length of time required and the high consumption costs associated with these processes. These main cost drivers are reduced by laser welding’s consistent quality and cosmetic seams. Our adjustable Wobble Function increases this consistent welding quality and boost the cosmetic perfect result to the highest level.

Since sheet metal fabricators benefit from the laser welding process in various ways, the ROI varies based on the production requirements of the shop. However, a laser welding cell can achieve a very high return on investment based on typical calculations. For example, pay-off time is roughly 7 to 9 months when a fabricator processes parts like covers and boxes, or fixtures such as counters and sinks for the medical or food service industries. This is true even when machine utilization is less than 50 percent and only active one shift per day.

Reducing drastically the ecological footprint of fabrication with fiber laser welding.

Committed to reduced energy consumption.

Carbon Footprint drastic reduction

Industrial fabrication, and the welding process in particular, is a highly energy intensive process involving the consumption of large quantities of gas, electricity and consumables. 

Laser welding consumes as little as 1/20th of the energy and gas consumed by TIG/GTAW for the same weld, dramatically reducing the carbon footprint of our customers.

Lasermach is committed to the development of technologies which reduce energy consumption, improve the sustainability of our industry and improve occupational health and safety.

What is wobble laser welding?

Trepanning fiber laser head

Standard laser welding heads are designed to focus a collimated laser beam to ONE required spot size, keeping the beam path static. This standard configuration limits each setup to ONE specific application.
Our Wobble heads, on the other hand, incorporate scanning mirror technology inside our weld head. By moving the beam with internal mirrors or rotating lenses, the focal spot is no longer static and can be dynamically adjusted by changing the shape, amplitude and frequency.

WOBBLE - Fiber laser welding

Handheld fiber laser welding machine

FAST, ECONOMICAL and SAFE hand welding with a fiber laser light beam

A Handheld fiber laser welding machine is a new type of high-power, high-end continuous welding tool which adopts a high-quality fiber laser source to produce a fiber optic light beam. After transmission processing, the light is focused on the workpiece to achieve continuous welding. It avoids the two thresholds of thermal strain and post-treatment, and is environmentally friendly and pollution-free, greatly improving the joint strength and quality of welding.
Replacing the traditional arc welding with a hand-held fiber laser welding machine will not only facilitates the welding of molds, advertising characters, kitchen utensils, doors and windows, etc. but also makes laser welding possible in outdoor operations, which indicates that this traditional welding of electric welding, argon arc welding, etc. will soon be replaced by our wobble laser welding.

The wobble method produces a superior weld by greatly reducing imperfections, increasing consistency, reducing material cost and providing more tolerance for process variables.

The welds produced using the laser stir welding (LSW) process, in general, exhibited a wider fusion zone than the welds produced without beam manipulation.
