Laser welding is a welding method that uses a high-energy laser beam. In this method, the joint areas of the workpieces are exposed to the laser beam using a laser welding machine. The laser beam focuses on a predetermined area, raising the temperature to the metal melting point in that area. During the melting process, the molecular structure at the metal joint changes, causing it to liquefy. Laser welding occurs when the evaporating gases are released as the melted metal cools and creates a welded bond.
Laser welding technology is widely used in many industries due to its precise control and high speed. It provides sufficient penetration for sheet metal up to 10mm, and is particularly preferred for industrial applications that require high precision and for applications that require higher welding speeds, such as welding of thin sheets. Additionally, it is preferred to obtain high-quality welding results due to much less thermal damage and deformation compared to other welding methods.
Environmentally friendly: Laser welding is more environmentally friendly compared to other welding methods. Therefore, it results in less waste and less environmental impact.
