Welding laser procedures

Thursday, 10 March 2016 | Published in Blog

Welding metal pieces, in order to joint components, is a common solution in our customer’s procedures.

Thus, we give more efficient and cost-effective solutions to manufacture processes that involve complex needs. To joint these components two types of laser welding can be used, depending on the angle and the pieces position, and these are overlap seam and Butt joint.

Butt joint welding is used in accessible welding areas, and is the welding depth penetration which determines the resistance.

Instead, Overlap welding is used to pass through materials, welding pieces in areas that are not accessible to other technologies. For this type of welding, is the heating cone section produced in the parts in contact that determinates the welding resistance.
