What are the advantages of hand-held laser welding machine

There are many drawbacks to traditional welding methods, but with the continuous improvement of welding technology, laser welding has begun to be widely used in China. This new welding technology surpasses the traditional welding technology, but what is the advantage of hand-held laser welding over traditional welding?

handheld laser welder

Hand-held laser welding is a kind of high-energy beam welding, which uses special welding equipment for welding. This technology uses a laser beam as a heat source for welding.

The greatest advantages of this technology are:

  • fast speed, large depth, and small deformation. The precise energy control of the laser beam after focusing can obtain precise positioning of very small spot welding so that some precise devices can be welded.
  • Welding flexibly implements non-contact long-distance welding, which can weld inaccessible parts. It is usually used in some materials or areas that are relatively difficult to weld.
  • It can weld stainless steel, carbon steel, silicon steel sheet, copper, aluminum alloy, gold, silver, chromium, nickel, titanium, tantalum, and other metals or alloys, and has a wide range of related applications.

Argon arc welding

The traditional argon arc welding is a kind of arc welding. It mainly uses the connection between the welding wire and the workpiece to realize welding. It mainly relies on the arc to make heat source. The heat affected area is large. The workpiece often causes deformation, hardness reduction, trachoma, blossom, wear, scratch, or insufficient bonding force and internal stress damage after welding.

From a professional point of view, the advantage of a hand-held laser welding machine lies in its fast welding speed and small heat-affected zone. And non-contact welding can be realized, that is to say, under the effect of any external force produced by the welding parts, the welding can be carried out for the parts that need to be welded. This is the biggest difference from the traditional argon arc welding. Moreover, the hand-held laser welding method is relatively stable, which can ensure the beauty of the weld and the inherent welding quality.
