Laser Welding System in Action

Laser Welding System in Action

See the ins-and-outs of a standard, stand-alone laser welding system. Designed for heavy industrial use the, LPKF LQ-Power is a workhouse, but still lives up to the “velvet hand” precision laser welding is know for. The rotary indexing table allows for parts to be loaded during welding, reducing downtime.

Is Laser Plastic Welding Economical?

Is Laser Plastic Welding Economical?

Laser plastic welding is becoming well known for its ability to join complex and detailed parts. In fact, the technology is driving innovation for products that were once not possible in the medical, automotive and consumer electronics industries.

However, there still exists a stigma that laser technology cannot compete economically with other joining methods. Despite the technical advantages, the initial capital investment of laser systems has been a stumbling block for the technology.
