The difference between water cooling and air cooling for laser welder!

There are obvious differences between water cooling and air cooling of handheld laser welding machines in many aspects. There are two common handheld laser welding machines on the market now, one is a water-cooled laser welding machine and the other is an air-cooled laser welding machine. How should we choose? First we have to figure out the difference between the two, and then choose according to different workplace lenses and personal usage habits. I believe this article will be of great help to you.


First of all, from the perspective of cooling principle, water cooling uses water flow to take away the heat generated by the laser, while air cooling uses a fan to send air to the radiator for heat dissipation. The main difference between these two methods is the heat dissipation medium, one uses water and the other uses air.


Secondly, from the perspective of heat dissipation effect, the heat dissipation effect of water cooling is usually better than that of air cooling. Because water has a greater specific heat than air, it absorbs the heat generated by the laser more quickly. In addition, the water cooling system is relatively stable and can support longer continuous working hours.


Third, in terms of volume and installation, the water cooling system is relatively large and needs to be connected to the water source and installed before use. The air-cooling system is more portable and does not require water pipes, making it suitable for small-scale production and mobile operations.


Fourth, from a price point of view, since water-cooled and air-cooled lasers themselves are different, their prices will also be different.


Finally, from an application perspective, the air-cooled laser welding machine is more suitable for small-scale production and mobile operations because it has the advantages of simple structure, easy movement, and small space occupation. The water-cooled laser welding machine is more suitable for mass production because it can meet the needs of long-term and high-intensity work. For example, SAN LASER is a manufacturer specializing in water-cooled laser welding machines. They have nearly 20 years of experience in the field of laser welding machines. They are the earliest manufacturers of laser welding machines in China, and they have different types of welding machines, such as handheld laser welding machines. machine, platform mold welding machine, jewelry welding machine, gantry galvanometer welding machine, etc.


In summary, there are obvious differences between the water-cooling and air-cooling methods of handheld laser welding machines in terms of cooling principles, heat dissipation effects, volume and installation, price, and application. Which method to choose depends on the specific needs and scenarios
