Why are people now choosing to use handheld laser welding machines?

What is a handheld fiber laser welding machine??

With the development of laser technology, the application of laser equipment is becoming more and more widespread, such as handheld laser welding machines. Handheld laser welding machines are a technology that uses high-energy-density laser beams as heat sources for precision welding. 

The handheld laser welding machine is mainly composed of a laser unit and a welding unit, taking into account the flexibility, efficiency and high weld quality of laser welding. It can effectively weld carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized sheets and other metal materials. It is suitable for tailor welding, stack welding, internal and external fillet welding, arc welding and irregular shape welding.

What are the characteristics of handheld fiber laser welding machines?

Efficient and precise: Laser welding can achieve fast and accurate welding, especially suitable for occasions with high precision requirements.

High flexibility: The handheld laser welding machine is easy to operate and can quickly adapt to different welding needs.

Good welding effect: Laser welding can achieve high-strength, low-deformation welding, and the welds are beautiful and smooth.

Energy saving and environmental protection: Compared with traditional welding methods, laser welding can significantly reduce energy consumption and waste.

Which industries are handheld laser welding machines mainly used in?

Automobile manufacturing: Used for welding body panels, chassis and other components, and can replace traditional resistance welding.

Electronic manufacturing: used for precision welding of small electronic components, such as internal connections of mobile phones, computers and other products.

Hardware processing: used for cutting, marking and welding of various metal materials.

Medical equipment: used for precision welding of metal parts, such as surgical instruments, dental tools, etc.

Other fields: such as aerospace, shipbuilding, kitchen and bathroom equipment, etc., handheld laser welding machines can be used wherever high-precision welding is required.

Comparison between handheld laser welding and argon arc welding

Energy consumption comparison:

Compared with traditional arc welding, handheld laser welding machines save about 80% to 90% of electric energy, and processing costs can be reduced by about 30%.

Welding effect comparison:

Handheld laser welding can complete the welding of dissimilar steels and dissimilar metals. Fast speed, small deformation and small heat affected zone. The welds are beautiful, smooth, with no/little pores, and no pollution. Handheld laser welding machines can perform tiny open parts and precision welding.

Comparison of subsequent processes:

The heat input during handheld laser welding is low, the deformation of the workpiece is small, and a beautiful welding surface can be obtained without or only simple processing (depending on the welding surface effect requirements). Handheld laser welding machines can greatly reduce the labor costs of huge polishing and leveling processes.
