Characteristics of Laser Welding Machine Welding Technology

Jul. 24, 2020

The laser welding machine is a kind of laser welding equipment that couples the high-energy laser beam into the optical fiber, and after long-distance transmission, it is collimated into parallel light by a collimator, and then focused on the workpiece for welding. So what are the characteristics of laser welding machine welding technology?

1. High flexibility 

Laser welding technology is currently the most advanced welding method in the processing field. Compared with traditional welding technology, laser welding technology is non-contact welding. The operation process does not require pressure. The welding speed is fast, the efficiency is high, the depth is large, residual stress and deformation Small, laser welding technology can weld refractory materials such as high melting point metals, and can even be used for welding non-metallic materials such as ceramics, organic glass, etc., welding special-shaped materials with good results and great flexibility. For parts that are difficult to access, flexible transmission non-contact welding is implemented. The laser beam can realize splitting in time and energy and can process multiple beams at the same time, which provides conditions for more precise welding.

2. Can weld materials that are difficult to weld    

Laser welding is a laser beam fusion material with very high energy density. The laser welding machine has the advantages of fast welding speed, high strength, narrow welding seam, small heat-affected zone, small deformation of the workpiece, less subsequent processing work, high flexibility. Laser welding can not only weld common carbon steel and stainless steel, but also weld materials that are difficult to weld with traditional weldings, such as structural steel, aluminum, copper, and other metals, and can weld various forms of welds.

3. Less labor cost 

Due to the extremely low heat input during laser welding, the amount of deformation after welding is very small, and the welding effect with a very beautiful surface can be achieved, so there are few follow-up treatments of laser welding, which can greatly reduce or eliminate the huge polishing and leveling process On labor. And this is especially real in today's rising labor costs.  

4. Safer 

The laser welding machine is carried out in a closed safety shield and is equipped with an automatic dust extraction device, which can ensure the health and safety of employees while maintaining a clean and tidy working environment in the workshop.
