With the continuous development and improvement of welding technology, there are many welding methods for people to choose from. One of those is the use of laser welders, which can have some distinct advantages over other welding techniques. Laser welding systems offer a limited heat affected zone and precise, high strength welds, while also allowing operators to weld thick, thin, reflective and dissimilar metals (with or without wire) that are typically difficult or impossible to weld with traditional methods.
Portable handheld laser welders are a relatively new product that supersede the conventional model by replacing its fixed optical path with a handheld configuration, making welding more flexible and convenient even with a long welding distance. The flexibility of the handheld laser welding machine enables the workpiece to be welded at any angle, making it useful for complex and irregular welding processes. It has many advantages such as simple operation, good looking welding seams, fast welding speed and no consumables.
The LIGHTWELD™ 1500 handheld laser welding system enables dramatically faster welding than MIG or TIG welding and is easy to learn and operate. The system provides higher-quality, consistent results across a wider range of materials and thicknesses than traditional 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-weld processing, like grinding or polishing, increasing productivity, and reducing scrap and cost-per-part.
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 handheld laser welding gun is compact, and ergonomic.
Laser power, up to 1500 watts, is easily adjusted with intuitive controls to help dial in optimum weld settings for various materials and thicknesses. Select stored modes provide up to 2500 watts of peak power for even greater welding capability.
With simple controls, including user-defined process parameters, the LIGHTWELD system allows novice welders to be trained and welding in a matter of hours, reducing labor costs while increasing quality, consistency and productivity. Additional programming features include:
The LIGHTWELD 1500 handheld laser welding system provides a built-in wobble functionality that enables operators to safely produce consistent, high-quality welds with its 2-step trigger. Features include:
