When choosing a laser welding machine, there are several factors to consider. In this material, we will point out and explain the basic criteria in selecting the right equipment for your needs, so that you can enjoy your new device for many years and use it in a wide variety of external orders or internal projects.
The first tip – the type of material.
The first factor to consider is the type of material you will be welding. Different types of laser welders are designed to weld different materials, so you should choose a laser welder that is designed to weld the material you will use most often. Devices based on fiber laser are the most modern method of joining metals and alloys, allowing you to weld workpieces of virtually any shape or thickness.
Second tip – the power of the device.
The second factor to consider is the power of the laser welder. The power of the laser welder will determine the speed of welding and the quality of the welds. You should choose a laser welder with sufficient output power for the type of welding you will be doing. Of course, you should consider what kind of realizations you are doing in preponderance. Are they small and thin details, or are they large in size and with a thick wall? Is it predominantly aluminum? We offer 3 basic types of power with values of 1000W, 1500W, 2000W. The power size of the handheld laser welder affects the purchase price.
The third tip – the size of the machine.
The third factor to consider is the size and weight of the laser welder. If you plan to use the laser welder in a confined space or restricted area, you should choose a smaller and lighter laser welder. If you plan to use the laser welder in an industrial or manufacturing environment, you should choose a larger and more powerful welder.
There are many different models of laser welders on the market, you can contact our specialists, who will help you choose the right machine after a conversation. Industrial machines usually weigh in the region of 200-300kg. The dimensions of such a machine are roughly: height 1100mm, length 1100mm, width 700mm. Of course, the individual dimensions and weight depend on the manufacturer and the power of the machine itself. Despite the relatively large weight and dimensions, it is a wheeled device with a welding gun on a cable of about 10m. This allows you to comfortably operate and weld even large structures.
The fourth tip – cost.
The fourth factor to consider is the cost of the laser welder. The cost of a laser welder will vary depending on the type, power of the laser welder you choose. The price is also affected by the manufacturer/supplier as well as the components used in each machine. You should choose a laser welder that fits within your budget and under your needs. There are different types of designs and suppliers on the market. First of all, you need to pay attention to the cheapest devices available for sale. Is technological support, training provided as part of the purchase cost? What company is the laser source and cooler? The cheapest devices on the market, most often have laser sources mounted used, or of poor quality. Which has a direct impact on the life of the device and the quality of the beam which translates into the quality of the weld. Therefore, it is worth paying special attention to the supplier.
Fifth tip – warranty.
The fifth factor to consider is the warranty of the laser welder. You should choose a laser welder that has warranty and post-warranty support with quick access to spare parts. This support should be carried out by quality professionals. This type of equipment is highly advanced technology. These machines, when used properly, practically do not break down, while you should be aware that these are industrial devices that can work 24 hours a day non-stop. Consequently, they will be used by different operators. The most common failures are caused by users and relate to incorrect settings or inability to select the right parameters. Therefore, it is important that the company that offers this type of equipment is familiar with welding.
What is a laser welder and what is it used for?
A laser welder is an advanced welding tool that uses a concentrated beam of light to heat and melt the material to be welded. The laser welder can be used to weld a variety of materials, including metals, plastics and composites. The laser welder is a relatively new technology, but it has quickly become one of the most popular welding tools used in industrial and manufacturing applications.
The laser welder can be used for a variety of welding applications, including spot welding, butt welding, seams and soldering. The laser welder is also used for welding delicate parts that require precision and accuracy. The laser welder is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of welding applications.
The most common laser welders.
There are several different types of laser welders available on the market. The most common type of laser welder is the solid-state laser welder. The solid-state laser welder is a highly reliable and efficient tool that is ideal for manufacturing environments.
The solid-state laser welder produces a highly concentrated beam of light, making it ideal for welding delicate parts.
The CO2 laser welder is another type of laser welder. The CO2 laser welder is a highly versatile tool that is ideal for welding a variety of materials, including metals, plastics and composites. The CO2 laser welder is also capable of producing a wide range of welding depths, making it ideal for a variety of welding applications.
Another type of laser welder is the fiber laser welder. The laser welder produces a highly concentrated beam of light, which is ideal for welding a variety of materials. The laser welder is also capable of producing a wide range of welding depths, making it ideal for a variety of welding applications. The diode laser welder is another type of laser welder. The diode laser welder produces a highly concentrated beam of light, which is ideal for welding various materials. The diode laser welder is also capable of producing a wide range of welding depths, making it ideal for various welding applications.
