Laser welding head and laser cutting heads are two important components in two laser applications. So, some people may ask, what is the difference between laser welding heads and cutting heads? In fact, these two kinds of work are completely different. Actually, the difference between laser welding head and cutting head is different. Laser welding machine use for weld metal, laser cutting is used to cut crafts.
Laser welding head
1. The laser welding head mounted on the laser welding machine. This is a new type of welding method. In fact, It is mainly use for the welding of thin-walled materials and precision parts. It can realize spot welding, butt welding, stack welding, sealing welding, etc., with high aspect ratio. Small weld width, small heat affected zone, small deformation, fast welding speed, smooth and beautiful weld seam, no need for treatment after welding or simple treatment, high weld quality, no porosity, precise control, small spotlight , high positioning accuracy, easy to achieve automation. The laser welding machine uses a high-energy laser pulse to locally heat the material in a small area. The energy of the laser radiation spreads to the inside of the material through heat conduction, and the material melte to form a specific molten pool
Laser cutting head
Second, the laser cutting head mounted on the laser cutting machine, which uses a high energy density laser beam to heat the workpiece, so, the temperature rises rapidly, reaches the boiling point of the material in a very short time, and the material begins to vaporize to form a vapor. These vapors ejected at a high speed, and a slit is formed in the material while the vapor is ejected. With the continuous development of the front storage tank industry, more and more industries and enterprises have applied laser-cut storage tanks, and more and more enterprises have entered the storage tank industry. However, due to the reduced cost of subsequent processing, It is still feasible to use such equipment in large production.
The above is the difference between the laser welding head and the cutting head. So, I hope this article will help everyone.
