At Orbital Fusion Technologies, we are committed to delivering quality service and providing our customers with advanced equipment.
As such, we have become a trusted brand for both tube work and orbital welding solutions.
Laser welding machines use lasers to assemble high-quality joints efficiently without any direct contact involved.
While this process is typically used to fuse metal components, it can also be used to join plastic parts.
Orbital Fusion Technologies is a provider of quality laser welding machines that are designed to meet your respective business needs.
Handheld laser welding machines have become an increasingly common substitute for traditional welding.
These machines feature a compact design and are equipped with either a standard or wobble welding head.
In comparison to the handheld machines, automatic laser welding machines are larger and more bulky.
They offer a series of benefits including
Fiber lasers use sharp, thin beams that are optimised for continuous oscillation.
The benefit of this laser in comparison to its CO2 and YAG counterparts is its ease of use and maintenance.
This laser uses a mixture of gases including carbon dioxide, nitrogen and helium.
It allows for continuous oscillation and is able to penetrate thick materials quickly and more effectively than fiber lasers.
While the fiber and CO2 lasers allow for continuous oscillation, the Nd:YAG laser is optimised for pulsed lasers.
However, it is less efficient with regards to penetrating thicker materials as compared to the CO2 and fiber laser.
Laser welding allows for high levels of precision and control. Hence, these machines are able to weld tiny components together without causing damage to the parts.
Laser welding is suitable for the creation of intricate joint configurations as well as the welding of different materials.
It is also useful for difficult-to-reach areas, where applying traditional welding methods would otherwise prove impossible to reach.
As laser welding utilises a low amount of heat, the distortion to components is minimal.
Hence, it is often the preferred welding method for luxury products such as jewellery.
How does laser welding work?
Laser welding uses heat from laser beams to melt the respective materials at the joint.
As the melted sections solidify, the two parts will be welded together permanently.
Where is laser welding typically used?
Laser welding is typically used in the following industries:
How strong is laser welding?
Laser welding allows users to make strong welds quickly and efficiently.
With regards to speed, it is significantly faster than
