Heat-affected area: The heat-affected area is small, cools quickly, and the surrounding materials are not affected.
Wide range of applications: used for welding carbon steel, high-strength steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum and other common metals, precious metals and dissimilar materials.
Precision work: the high-power controllable laser beam allows precision welding of micro-components.
No damage to the base material: In all welding methods, laser welding keeps the parts with minimal deformation or shrinkage.
No contact welding: There is no direct contact between the laser head and the base material.
Environmental friendly: Laser welding does not require auxiliary materials, so the amount of waste generated is very small.
But it should be noted that the laser welding machine also has certain disadvantages:
1. Metal laser welding machine is expensive and the initial investment is high.
2. High assembly accuracy is required during the processing. When using fixtures, you must ensure that the final position of the weldment is aligned with the welding point that the laser beam will act on to avoid deflection of the laser beam on the part.
3. The welding energy conversion efficiency is low, usually less than 10%.
4. The weld is fast solidified, taking into account the influence of porosity and brittleness.
5. The maximum welding thickness is 20mm, and laser welding is not suitable for the production line.
What parameters should be checked?
Disen Laser recommends that you verify several parameters before each use of the laser welding machine to ensure that the laser welding machine can perform at the highest level of production.
1. Energy parameters
Disen Laser reminds you that before each use, you need to adjust the energy parameters and adjust the power ratio to the value required by the welding process to prevent energy waste and substrate waste.
2. Beam diameter
Disen Laser reminds you that a laser beam with a diameter between 0.2-2mm is conducive to better welding results, and the beam diameter directly affects the welding performance.
3. Pulse frequency
Disen Laser reminds you that the pulse frequency is inversely proportional to the pulse energy. The pulse frequency should be determined according to the thickness of the base material. Too high a pulse frequency will result in a low pulse energy, thereby reducing welding efficiency.
4. Laser pulse waveform
Disen Laser reminds you to change the waveform according to the metal material to be welded. If an inappropriate waveform is used, 60% to 98% of the laser energy will be lost, which will directly lead to the failure of the welding operation.
