Experts in Precision Laser Component Manufacturing

Laser Welding

Laserage’s laser welding capabilities span a wide range that includes thin, fragile or precision assemblies and pre-fabricated components that require welding near electronics or ceramic/glass components. Hermetic sealing utilizing sealed chamber glove box welding is also available.

Each project begins with our seasoned product engineers collaborating with your team for a project review. This enables us to provide the best solution using one of our many CO2, Nd:YAG, or Fiber laser systems and to create custom fixtures, tools and systems as needed.

From prototype to production, Laserage can offer entirely customized tooling solutions to suit your project requirements. With virtually no dependence on third-party vendors for the design, building, and maintenance of tooling, Laserage holds complete control over delivery lead times on your projects.

Advantages of Laser Welding

Laser-enabled welding provides unmatched advantages in intricate and thin-walled components. We utilize our state-of-the-art welding machines to weld dissimilar materials and a range of exotic materials.

Here are the major advantages of laser precision welding:

  • Less distortion on work pieces because metal is fused within a very small area at high speeds and welds that are consistent and reliable
  • Higher production rates, thus saving you money
  • Little or no joint preparation required for this type of welding, saving additional time and money
  • We offer narrow, precision weld beads with excellent cosmetic appearance, to a high degree of accuracy
  • Laser welding allows for joining dissimilar metals with no filler metal

Materials

Welding-Laser-16-5x5Laser welding is a proven joining method for a variety of today’s metals and alloys. However, this highly sophisticated process is best left to the experts. At Laserage, we have successfully used our lasers to weld various grades of carbon steels, nickel alloys, stainless steels, titanium alloys and super alloys.

That’s precisely why enterprises worldwide consider laser welding to be a viable alternative to TIG welding, EB welding, resistance welding, brazing, silver soldering and adhesive bonding. Our process is particularly ideal for high production volumes associated with fully-automated or semi-automated tooling applications.

Laserage also offers a variety of post processing options to your welded assemblies such as micro-abrasive blasting, electropolishing and passivation.
