Advantages and Applications of Handheld Laser Welding

Handheld laser welding equipment is one of the rapidly emerging growth in the laser application market in recent years. Since the second half of 2018, handheld laser welding equipment was frequently showed at exhibitions, and has been recognized by the market for its high efficiency, short training time, environmental protection, low consumables, and high scalability. Even IPG, a giant fiber laser company, has entered the handheld laser welding market.




In its latest report, IPG said, "Demand for orders for handheld laser welding machine has been very high. Customers are excited about the ease of operation, improved weld quality and the versatility of materials that can be joined with our handheld laser welders. In some applications, handheld laser welding can help customers reduce material costs for manufacturing parts because they can use metals that cannot be welded with traditional processes. In addition handheld laser welding can clean surfaces before and after welding, further reducing costs and increasing productivity. In addition, this product helps to address the shortage of qualified welders and high labor costs, as the training process for the handheld laser welding takes only a few hours and is very easy to use, even for non-professional welders."



The current application areas of handheld laser welding are mainly focused on sheet metal, water tanks, distribution boxes and other cabinets, kitchen utensils, stainless steel doors and other complex and irregular welding processes that do not require fixtures. Compared with the traditional argon arc welding, handheld laser welding is energy-saving (about 80% to 90% less power than argon arc welding), and it has better performance in welding speed, welding quality, and follow-up processing of metal materials such as thin stainless steel plates, iron plates, and aluminum plates (can greatly reduce polishing and The labor cost of the leveling process). Therefore there is a high potential to replace the traditional welding process.
