Laser welding serves a wide range of industries, including aerospace, industrial, medical and nuclear, among many others. For the aerospace industry in particular, laser welding capabilities have played an integral role in everything from flight components to airport security procedures. Because laser-enabled welding provides precision from start to finish, it serves as an effective process for not only an impressive array of industry projects, but especially for materials used in proven aerospace applications.
The 5 major advantages of laser welding are:
1. Strength – Laser welding technology is durable enough to make high strength welds. Lasers provide quality and clean processing, which is why they’re favored among manufacturers.
2. Consistency – Laser welding is not only a faster and more versatile process compared to other techniques, but it also provides more consistency. Therefore, laser welding is the ideal option for handling material when repeatability is needed, all without compromising cost.
3. Precision – Laser welding offers strong accuracy and control. Precision small laser beams can be used for welding even the tiniest of parts together, all without creating any damage to any of the parts.
4. Complex Joins Handling – Unlike traditional welding techniques, laser welding makes it possible to weld varying materials that do not have to be similar to one another.
5. Low Heat Application – With minimal heat input, laser welding noticeably reduces any improper alterations to components. Because of this, laser welding is the preferred method of welding options for meeting the high-demanding needs of the aerospace industry to achieve effectiveness.
Laserage meets the regulations required in compliance with ISO as well as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), ensuring that we provide quality services with a “focus on excellence” to all industries we serve, including aerospace engineering. Laserage successfully meets the rigorous demands of the aerospace industry by having over 35 years of expertise in working with materials such as stainless steel, titanium, Nitinol, Inconel, aluminum, MP35N and more.
We utilize state-of-the-art laser machines to fulfil the needs of a range of applications for the aerospace industry. Some of those applications include pressure vessel welding, orifice drilling, proximity sensors welding, leading-edge hole drilling, battery welding and sensitive electronics glove box welding. The glove box welding process consists of welding under an inert gas shield while sealing packages in a low atmosphere. Sometimes heating or bake out is required and ESD procedures are part of the process.
