How thick is the hand-held laser welder?

The depth of laser welding is related to the properties of the material, including the thickness of the material.It is not possible to select the same parameters for the welding of carbon steel and titanium.
The laser welder CAN weld steel plates with different thicknesses of 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm. The power of the welding machine is 300W, 600W and 1000W respectively.
1.YAG laser welder
Welding with thickness of 3mm is the best.
2.300W laser welder
The thickness of surfacing shall not exceed 1.5mm. Of course, sometimes parameters set for slightly thicker points can also be welded by strength and thermal deformation, which is generally not acceptable.
3.600W laser welder
Suitable for laser welding of kitchen, household appliances and high-speed stainless steel, 1.5mm steel plate with thickness less than 1mm and penetration depth less than 1mm.
4.1000W laser welder
2mm thick stainless steel plate, fully welded, the finer the weld is the better.It is recommended to use 1000 W fiber laser welding, welding speed can be more than 1m/min, 500 W can also be used, but the speed is slow.
5. The 1500W laser welding machine can weld stainless steel within 5 mm. The 2000W laser welding machine can weld stainless steel within 8 mm.
If the weld is larger than 0.3 mm, it is recommended to use a wire-feeding laser welding machine. If the thickness of the material is less than 1 mm, it is recommended to use laser welding without wire feeding, because the welding speed with wire feeding will be slower than that without wire feeding.
Many users think that the higher the power of the laser welding machine, the better, because the price of the high-power laser welding machine is more expensive. In fact, the welding effect of fiber laser welding machine is not only related to its power, but also closely related to its accessories, production quality of the whole machine, laser welding system, optical system and other factors. Therefore, when choosing laser welding equipment, users should not only consider its power, but also understand other configurations of the machine.

What should I pay attention to when using a hand held laser welding machine?

1. Before starting laser welding of metal, the operator needs to wear laser protective glasses and safety protective clothing to ensure safe production. In addition, pay attention to the surrounding environment of the laser welding machine is clean and tidy, and there should be no oil stains and flammable items. Welding consumables and plates are placed in an orderly manner.
2. Laser welding machine cannot be used together with arc welding machine (argon arc welding, spot welding) to prevent circuit reflow from causing damage to machine parts.
3. The user cannot aim the laser welding gun at any part of the body when using the laser welding machine. The laser welding head cannot be placed directly on the ground to prevent dust from damaging the lens.
4. If the laser welding equipment fails, first contact the laser welding machine manufacturer and ask for technical assistance to solve it. Do not disassemble or repair it yourself without understanding the problem.
5. Ensure that the circuits and wires are fault-free. Once the wire is found to be damaged, it needs to be repaired or replaced immediately. Do not use hand-held laser welding machines with damaged wires.
In addition to the matters needing attention during use, regular maintenance and inspection of the laser welding machine is also required after use. Only in this way can the occurrence of welding failures be reduced. While this process may take some time and effort, proper operation can improve welding efficiency and ensure the performance of your laser welding machine. Routine maintenance can improve machine safety and prolong machine life.
We know that hand-held laser welders are commonly used in the production of kitchen utensils.To be exact, a hand-held stainless steel laser welder is used.
Compared with argon arc welding, laser welding machine can save energy 80% and 90%, and the processing cost can be reduced by about 30%.It can weld different kinds of steel and metal to achieve mechanization and automation.High speed, small deformation, small heat affected area, high aspect ratio.Beautiful weld, smooth, no porosity.No treatment or simple treatment is required after welding.Small focal length, no pollution, high positioning accuracy.Hand-held laser welder for small openings and precision welding.
The laser welding machine has low heat input, small deformation after welding, good welding surface effect and less subsequent treatment.Hand-held stainless steel laser welder can greatly reduce or eliminate the huge cost of manual welding.
