Laser Source for welding selection

What type of laser source do i need to weld my product?

There are a number of laser sources available for laser welding, and each has specific performance characteristics that align with certain application categories. During the selection process it is important to keep in mind that welding is a balance among such factors as penetration, speed, weld stability, and accommodation of production part fit-up and tolerances. The end user should have sufficient understanding of which lasers are best suited to their welding application. This understanding can be self-acquired or through partnering with experienced laser system integrators and laser OEMs.
