What do you get when you pair a non-contact, high intensity heat source with a compact, relatively inexpensive high speed motion system? A perfect match! The "ham n' eggs" of laser industry: a micro laser welding system that can push productivity to the max with three key features:
Aluminum alloys, are lightweight, possess good thermal and electrical conductivity, and are relatively inexpensive to work with. Therefore, it’s no surprise that they are being used with increased frequency in product manufacturing applications ranging from batteries and electronics packaging, to automotive components and consumer goods packaging. Laser welding aluminum, however, is more difficult than welding steels for three key reasons: high reflectivity, surface oxide layer, and volatile alloying elements.
Fiber lasers come in two flavors: single mode and multi mode. What are the differences and which should you choose for your fiber laser micro welding application?
