Laser welding is suitable both for sheet and tubular material. By applying laser welding small and complex parts can be attached to one another with almost unnoticeable weld seams. Laser welding requires careful preparation and positioning, but the advantage is a narrow weld that hardly leaves a mark on the surface of the work piece.
Advantages of Laser Welding
- Does not require after treatment (can be the last manufacturing step)
- Minimal thermal effect
- Material thickness 0.01 mm and thicker
- Bimetallic welds
- Surface to be welded may even be in a location that is difficult to access
