It’s a good alternative to resistance spot welding in many applications. The main power includes 1kw, 1.5kw and 2kw. In this article XTLASER will share the running cost of fiber laser welder with you.

Running cost of handheld fiber laser welder

The running cost of handheld fiber laser welding machine mainly includes 3 parts: power consumption, quick wear parts and auxiliary gas.

1. Power comsumption

In fact, we usually use 50%-60% power to weld the metals.
1kw total power consumption is 7.5kw. The real power consumption is only 3.8-4.5kw/h.
1.5kw total power consumption is 8.5kw. The real power consumption is only 4.3-5.1kw/h.
2kw total power consumption is 10kw. The real power consumption is only 5-6kw/h.

fiber laser welding machine

2. Quick wear parts

Quick wear parts for handheld fiber laser welder are only protective lens and copper nozzle.
Protective lens: lifetime is 240 hours, about 40-50pcs per year
Copper nozzle: lifetime is 360 hours, about 20-25pcs per year
Better environment, better operation, longer using time.

3. Auxiliary gas

The gas mainly plays a protection role, its consumption is very small. Nitrogen (N2) or Argon both are OK. But for materials easy to be oxidized, Argon is better. The gas can isolate the air from the welding plate to prevent reaction with the air. So the welding surface of the metal plate will be white and beautiful. The gas also can protect the lens from welding dust.

Handheld fiber laser welding machine-Teresa

Handheld fiber laser welding machine

Fiber laser welding uses a high energy density laser beam as a heat source for efficient precision welding. However, laser welding requires high precision for workpiece pre-machining. So the position of the beam on the workpiece cannot not deviate significantly. If the assembly accuracy or beam positioning accuracy of the workpiece does not meet the requirements, it is easy to cause welding defects. This limits the process capability of laser welding to a certain extent. Because the spot size is small and the weld is narrow after laser focusing.
In response to the limitations of the above laser welding technology, the market has gradually introduced a laser welding method with double wedge laser vibration.  There’s a special wobble vibration module on the welding head. The application of wobble welding technology can make laser welding more widely used. And it can achieve high-efficiency laser precision welding for larger or wider welds workpieces.

Laser Welding Technology

In conventional laser vibration welding, the collimated beam is vibrated by a uniaxial galvanometer. And the spot focused by the focusing mirror is moved with the welding head to move relative to the workpiece. Thus forms a weld having a certain amplitude, frequency and offset.
Compared to the first two vibration welding modes, the double wedge mirror rotational vibration welding produces a spiral weld seam by the vibration module mounted between the collimating mirror and the focusing mirror, so that the focusing spot moves while the welding head moves. When the focal length is the same, the larger the torsion angle, the larger the vibration amplitude. When the torsion angle is the same, the larger the focal length, the larger the vibration amplitude. Therefore, double wedge vibration welding allows the weld joint to be wider while achieving better weld formability.

Shielding gas of handheld fiber laser welding machine-Ariel

fiber laser welding machine

This article is about shielding gas of handheld fiber laser welding machine.

 

In laser welding, shielding gas will affect the weld formation, the weld quality, the weld depth, and the weld width, etc.In most cases, the blowing of the shielding gas will have a beneficial effect on the weld, but bad use may also bring adverse effects.

FIBER LASER WELDER

The positive effect of shielding gas on laser welding

laser welding machine

●Proper blowing of the shielding gas will effectively protect the weld pool from oxidation and even avoid oxidation;

FIBER LASER WELDER

●Laser welder,Proper blowing of the shielding gas can effectively reduce the splash generated during the welding process and protect the focusing mirror;

laser welding machine

Proper blowing of the shielding gas can promote the uniform spreading of the weld pool during solidification so that the weld more  formed and beautiful;.

FIBER LASER WELDER

●Laser welding machine,proper blowing of the shielding gas can effectively reduce metal vapor or the shielding effect of the plasma cloud on the laser so that the laser energy reaching the surface of the workpiece, and thereby increase the effective utilization rate of the laser;

laser welding machine

●Proper blowing of the shielding gas can effectively reduce weld porosity.

Choose right gas type, gas flow rate, and blowing , it can achieve good result.However, improper use of shielding gas can also have adverse effects on welding.

laser welding machine

Adverse effects of improper use of shielding gas on laser welding

laser welding machine

●Improper blowing of shielding gas may cause the weld to deteriorate;

●Choosing the wrong type of gas may cause cracks in the weld, and may also lead to the reduction of weld mechanical properties;

●Choosing the wrong type of gas may cause the weld to be more oxidized (whether the flow is too large or too small), or it may cause the weld pool metal to be seriously disturbed by the external force to cause the weld to collapse or form unevenly;

●Choose the wrong gas blowing method will result in the weld not achieving the protective effect or negatively affecting the weld formation;

●Insufflation of the shielding gas will have a certain effect on the weld penetration, especially when the thin plate is welded, the weld penetration will be reduced.The commonly used laser welding shielding gas is mainly N2(nitrogen), Ar(argon), He(helium), and their physicochemical properties are different, so the effect on the weld is different.

FIBER LASER WELDER

●Nitrogen N2—can be used for welding shielding gas of stainless steel

laser weldER

The ionization energy of N2 is moderate, higher than that of Ar, lower than that of He, and the ionization degree under the action of laser is general, which can better reduce the formation of plasma cloud, thereby increasing the effective utilization of laser.Nitrogen can react with aluminum alloy and carbon steel at a certain temperature to produce nitrides, which will improve the brittleness of welds and reduce the toughness, and have a great adverse effect on the mechanical properties of the weld joint.Therefore, it is not recommended to use nitrogen to protect the weld of aluminum alloy and carbon steel.The nitride produced by the chemical reaction between nitrogen and stainless steel can improve the strength of the welded joint and improve the mechanical properties of the weld. Therefore, nitrogen can be used as a shielding gas when welding stainless steel.

laser welding machine

●Argon Ar— high-cost performance, the most conventional shielding gas

FIBER LASER WELDER

The ionization energy of Ar is relatively low, and the degree of ionization is high under the action of the laser. it is not conducive to controlling the formation of the plasma cloud. And will have a certain influence on the effective utilization of laser.However, the activity of Ar is very low. And it is difficult to react with common metals, and the cost of Ar is not high.Besides, the density of Ar is large, which is conducive to sinking above the weld pool and can better protect the weld pool. Therefore, Ar can be used as a conventional shielding gas.

FIBER LASER WELDER

●Helium He—the best but also the most expensive shielding gas

laser welding machine

He has the highest ionization energy and low ionization under the action of laser.

It can control the formation of the plasma cloud very well, and the laser can work well on metal.

Moreover, it does not chemically react with metals.  So it has a good marking effect. However, the cost of He is too high. It is not  suitable for mass production products.

Most of time it use for scientific research or products with very high added value.so 

Hope this information is helpful for you.If you have any questions of machine,please contact to us.
