First tries are done preparing butt welding tool with good results at 1.2 m/min. However tensile test results are giving low values for the expected target.
Secondly, overlap (0.3 + 0.3) welding shots are produce, lowering power and using 600 w pulsed power laser. Results as shown in the picture are more likely to be accepted by the customer. Additional challenge is to avoid heat damage on the outer side of the plate. By producing 0.4 mm welds (106 microns spot) and 0.5 mm penetration we see there is a steady process and good tensile resistance goal is achieve.
Recently we have investigated the manufacture of diamond cutting discs in our laser welding laboratory. Discs are used mainly in the construction field, allowing clean and quick cuts in a wide range of materials. They are constructed by a serrated disc, with a hardened outer zone, usually with diamond.
Tests to define the conditions and parameters of laser welding in aluminum parts for applications where some significant amount of electric current may be required.
The desired welding is due to the characteristics of quality that are listed below.
Customer requires a clean and fast cut to go forward with the investment. State of the art has not reach both levels at the same time invalidating any chance of industrialization.-
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.
New fixture is been tested on Lantec.
When talking about laser welding of automobile components fixture becomes together with the laser election the critical issues that you need to control.
Our customer wants to check whether laser welding is able to produce a reliable joint in bearing cartridges manufacturing, producing a in this case, we are using a CO2 slab laser of 2.5 Kw with a Precitec welding head, welding at a speed of 1 m per minute, searching for maximum penetration without affecting the inner diameter of the shaft.
