LIGHTWELD 1500 Handheld Laser Welding System

The LIGHTWELD™ 1500 handheld laser welding system enables dramatically faster welding and is easy to learn and operate. The system provides higher-quality, consistent results across a wider range of materials and thicknesses than MIG or TIG welding, with minimal distortion, undercut or burn-through. The heat-affected zone is dramatically minimized, as is the need for traditional post-processing grinding or polishing for increased productivity, less scrap and lower cost-per-part. 

Laser power, up to 1500 watts, is easily adjusted with intuitive controls to quickly dial in optimum weld settings for various materials and thicknesses. Laser weld thick, thin, reflective and dissimilar metals (without wire) that are difficult or impossible with traditional methods. You can also weld materials with different electrical conductivity. With 74 stored preset and user-defined process parameters, novice welders can be trained and welding in a matter of hours. Select stored modes provide up to 2500 watts of peak laser power for even greater welding capability.

The handheld laser welding gun is compact, ergonomic and proven to be comfortable, well balanced and easy to use. The lightweight and built-in wobble functionality enables operators to safely produce consistent, high-quality welds, with its 2-step trigger.

Linde LightWeld 1500 Handheld Laser Welding System

1. Welding Process Automation and Programmability

  • Predefined welding parameters for high-quality, consistent welds
  • Novice welders are trained and welding in matter of hours
  • Simple controls for selection of 74 stored modes and saving of used-defined process parameters

       - Customized parameters for laser power, wobble width and frequency are saved to user-modes and recalled as needed

       - Simple mode selection allows rapid switching between different material-thickness combinations

       - Novice welders used stored parameters to achieve the same high-quality, consistent welds as seasoned operators

2. Built-in Wobble Welding for Increased Productivity 

  • Simple on-the-fly control of up to 5 millimeters of additional weld width, with selectable frequencies
  • Creates highly aesthetic seams and welding of parts with poor fit-up
  • Wobble parameters are preprogrammed

        - Can be saved by the operator

        - Can be recalled immediately

The LIGHTWELD™ Laser Welding Advantage

The LIGHTWELD™ 1500 handheld laser welding system enables dramatically faster welding than MIG or TIG welding. Unlike traditional methods, welding fixtures are simpler or not needed with LIGHTWELD. Metals do not need to be pre-brushed or ground completely clean, and even novices can reliably weld materials with dissimilar thicknesses and different electrical conductivity.

The LIGHTWELD system welds dissimilar metals of different thicknesses with ease and creates aesthetic, high-strength joints with minimal or no consumable wire.
