Laser welding machine compared with traditional welding technology

Apr 18,2023 | TOPTEK

Welding: also known as welding and welding, is a manufacturing process and technology for joining metal or other thermoplastic materials such as plastics by means of heating, high temperature or high pressure.

There are many sources of energy for modern welding, including gas flames, electric arcs, lasers, electron beams, friction, and ultrasound.

The difference between laser welding and traditional welding is as follows:

  1. Laser welding is non-contact welding. No pressure is required during the operation process. The welding speed is fast, the efficiency is high, the depth is large, the residual stress and deformation are small, and it can be welded at room temperature or under special conditions (such as a closed space). The device is simple and does not generate X-rays.
  2. It can weld refractory materials such as high-melting point metals, and can even be used for welding non-metallic materials such as ceramics and plexiglass. It has a good effect on welding special-shaped materials and has great flexibility. It can be used for welding that is difficult to access Non-contact long-distance welding is performed on the parts.
  3. The laser beam can be focused to obtain a very small spot. Because it is not affected by the magnetic field and can be positioned precisely, it can perform micro-welding and is suitable for the assembly and welding of micro and small workpieces in mass-automated production.
  4. The laser beam is easy to split the beam according to time and space, and the device can be switched to transmit the laser beam to multiple workstations. Therefore, simultaneous processing of multiple beams and multi-station processing can be performed, providing conditions for more precise welding.
  5. Since laser welding is non-contact processing, there are no problems such as tool loss and tool replacement. At the same time, it does not need to use electrodes, so there is no concern about electrode pollution or damage, and it is easy to perform high-speed welding with automation. It can also be controlled by digital or computer.
  6. Technical requirements As long as they have basic computer knowledge, ordinary employees are enough, unlike traditional welding machines that require high operating experience and good skills. So as to save a relatively part of the money for the enterpriseagain.          

Laser welding technology is easier to operate than traditional welding technology. Customers who use it for the first time only need to follow the instructions of technicians to weld a weld seam, and laser welding is also a non-contact processing method, which also improves the safety of operatorsAssure.
