Laser Welding Technology
Using lasers, it is possible to weld a variety of materials with precision and efficiency. Laser welding machines can join plastic to plastic, including clear-to-clear plastics, plastic to metal, and metal to metal. This welding method is good for making clean, high-quality welds without needing extra materials like adhesives or fasteners.
Laser Welding Machines for Plastics & Metals
Laser welders use a strong laser beam to connect metal or thermoplastic materials together. They have become increasingly popular in manufacturing industries due to their precision, speed, and ability to produce strong, durable welds. Various industries, such as automotive, aerospace, medical device manufacturing, electronics, and jewelry making, utilize laser technology for joining materials together.
They are good for welding complicated shapes and sizes, making them perfect for intricate designs or difficult-to-reach areas. Laser beam welding can handle various materials and thicknesses, making them a versatile option for welding tasks.

Metal Laser Welding
Metal laser welding is a non-contact welding process that generates robust and airtight seals without the need for filler metals. This advanced welding technique uses different methods to create strong and long-lasting welds of excellent quality. These methods include:
- Conduction Welding for heating the surface
- Keyhole Welding for deeper penetration
- Pulsed Laser Welding for controlled heat input
- Laser Spot Welding for localized joins
- Laser Seam Welding for welding along pre-defined seams.
Our welding technology ensures precision and consistency, reducing the need for costly reworks and minimizing material waste. With our metal laser welding solutions, you can achieve faster cycle times, improved product quality, and reduced manufacturing costs.
Plastic Laser Welding
With our laser welding systems, you can achieve robust and reliable seals between plastics that have similar thermal properties. Our advanced systems are highly versatile and can process a wide range of plastic materials with precision and accuracy. Additionally, our laser welding technology enables you to join two transparent pieces of plastic without any additives or color changes. Our systems are great for medical, automotive, and electronics industries, where good-looking welds are important.
Our laser welding technology also ensures minimal thermal distortion, reducing the risk of damage to the surrounding material. Choose our laser welding systems for a cost-effective and efficient solution for your plastic welding needs.
Laser Welding Benefits:
- Flexible weld patterns
- High-precision welding paths
- Non-contact process
- Automation friendly
- Excellent seam quality
- Weld clear plastics together
Joining Clear Plastics
Laser welding clear plastics is a highly efficient and precise method of joining transparent materials. Using a laser beam, this method joins clear plastics together, making them strong and nearly invisible. The laser beam generates localized heat at the welding interface, causing the adjacent plastic surfaces to melt and fuse together. As the melted plastic cools and solidifies, it forms a seamless and durable connection.
Laser welding offers several advantages including:
- Minimal thermal impact
- Precise control over the weld area
- The ability to create aesthetically appealing welds without the need for additional adhesives or fasteners
