Laser Welding

An Introduction to Laser Welding

Laser welding (LW) is a welding process that uses a high-power density laser beam to join two materials together, creating a deep, narrow weld.

 

How Does Laser Welding Work?

Laser welding is a technique that is known for its versatility and high productivity, especially for thin section materials, and for welding at high speeds.

Compared to other welding techniques, such as MIG and TIG, laser welding has relatively low heat input overall, resulting in low distortion, excellent mechanical properties, and minimal post-weld machining.
