                                                                                                   Descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.

 

Here are some descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.I would like to share with you some features and operation cost of the handheld fiber laser welding machine. It is easy to operate and the maintenance cost is also very low.

First of all,needn’t welding wire.

Compared with the traditional welding, like tig, it doesn’t need to use welding wire.Only when the gap more than 0.5mm, we should use the wire feeder.

Secondly,less quick-wear parts.

The quickly-wear parts for the  machine are only protective lens and copper nozzle.

What’s more,less electricity and gas.

Except the quick-wear parts, the machine also consume electricity and gas.
The power consumption of 1kw machine is 7.5kw/hour at full power situation. In fact, we usually just use 50%-60% power of 1000w to weld the metals.So the power consumption is small.The machine also need to connect with gas, argon or nitrogen.

The gas can isolate the air from the welding plate to prevent the 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.

Tips:The price of the gas is different in different counties and regions. If our customers think the cost of the gas is too high,they can use air compressor to produce air gas. But the welding effect will not very good.The welding surface of the metal may be black.So our customers should wipe the surface of the metal with ethyl alcohol.

Last but not least,easy to maintenance.

The machine is very easy to matain.When finish your welding work, turn off the power and clean the welding head, it can make the lifetime of protective lens and copper nozzle longer.

 

That is all my descriptation.Hope it is helpful for you. If you have any confused of machine,please feel free contact us.

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.

Advantages of fiber laser welding machine -Martin

Fiber laser technology is better than traditional hard optical path. What are the advantages of fiber laser welding machine?
First: stable performance, fast speed, large depth, small deformation, and good beam quality.

Second: The welding equipment is simple ,and can weld at room temperature or under special conditions.

For example, when the laser passes through the electromagnetic field, the beam will not shift;

The laser can  weld stably in vacuum, air, and certain gas environments, and can weld through glass or materials ,that are transparent to the beam.

The laser beam is easy to realize the beam splitting in time and space, and can perform multi-beam simultaneous processing and multi-station processing, so provides conditions for more precise welding.

Third : It can weld refractory materials such as titanium, quartz, etc., and can weld heterogeneous materials with good results.

Fourth : After the laser is focuse, the power density is high. When welding high-power devices, the aspect ratio can reach 5:1, and the highest can reach 10:1.

Fifth : Micro welding is possible. Not only can the laser beam  focuse to obtain a small spot, but also can  accurately and quickly position. So it is use widely in the assembly welding of micro and small workpieces in mass automat production.

sixth : can weld small parts that are difficult to access, non-contact long-distance precise welding, with great flexibility and stability. In YAG laser processing technology, adopt optical fiber transmission technology  , which brings laser welding technology to a higher level and is widely recognize and applie.

The advantages of the laser welding Martin

Hello everyone. Martin from XT laser.

Glad to communicate the advantages of laser welding with you.

As the development of technology, welding technology become better and better.

Although the laser welding machine price is still higher than TIG, MIG, etc. But the welding effect is better than traditional wedling.

In this article, I want to talk about the advantages of laser welding.

The theory of welding, I believe most people know that. Using high temperature let the materials melt.

After the temperature becomes low. Then Materials solidify together. Finally, it achieves to combine.

Comparing to traditional welding, the advantages of laser welding are as below:

Firstly, one of the most advantages is saving time.

Conventional welding takes 1 hour. Using a laser welding machine just about 15minutes do the same work. So it is about saving of 86% time.

Secondly, It can secondary processes e.g. grinding.

Third, complex weld seam geometries. It can weld complex weld seam geometries. Because the laser head is easy to move. S

Fourth, consistent and perfect weld quality. Using laser welding, the surface looks more beautiful. Because the laser has strong power.

And can melt metal easily. It can make the weld very small. So it is better than traditional welding.

Fifth, low material distortion and twisting

Sixth, Flexible joint geometries.

 

At last, introduce our company. Our company built in 2004, and we have 16 years’ experience in the laser industry.

So we could supply more professional laser welding machine.

Also, we have a laser cutting machine, laser marking machine, laser cleaning machine for the laser industry.

Share our laser welding machine with you. The picture is as below:

Take one minute to know fiber laser welding machine-Teresa

Take one minute to know fiber laser welding machine

In industrial manufacturing, laser equipments are popular in marking, cutting, welding and other fields. Fiber laser welding machine has become a major trend at present. This is because of the many advantages of fiber laser welding machine.

1. Advantages of fiber laser welding machine:

Firstly, good processing stability

The heat input can be reduced to the minimum required amount. The metallographic change range of the heat-affected zone is small. And the deformation caused by heat conduction is also the lowest.

Secondly, high processing efficiency

It can reduce the time required for welding thick plates and even save the use of filler metal.

Thirdly, less machine loss

There is no need to use electrodes, and there is no concern about electrode contamination or damage; non-contact welding process. This can make the wear and deformation of the equipment be minimized.

Fourthly, wide processing range

The workpiece can be placed in a closed space (under vacuum or internal gas environment under control). The laser beam will focus on a small area. It can weld small and closely spaced parts, can weld a wide range of materials, and can also join various heterogeneous materials. It is easy to automate high-speed welding and can also be controlled by digital or computer. When welding thin materials or thin-diameter wires, it is not as easy to have trouble like arc welding.

Fifthly, small processing conditions

It is can accurately align the weldment and not affected by the magnetic field. (arc welding and electron beam welding are easy to be affected by the magnetic field). It can weld two metals with different physical properties (such as different resistances). Don’t need vacuum or X-ray protection.

2. XTLASER handheld fiber laser welding machine:

 

Firstly, simple and easy to operate

Simple and easy operation, no deformation of the welding seam; stable laser output to ensure welding consistency; high power density after laser focusing; fast speed, large depth and small deformation; 360-degree micro-welding without dead angles.

Secondly, fast welding speed

It is more than twice that of solid YAG laser welding, and 3-5 times that of argon arc welding; it saves cost, is stable and worry-free.

Thirdly, beautiful welding process

Breaking through the limitations of the original workbench, it is suitable for all kinds of complex welding seams, and it is easy to weld any part of the workpiece at any angle. The humanized design and technology upgrade can produce beautiful welding seams.

Fourthly, swing welding head

The process that traditional magnetic head cannot complete, the swing welding head only needs to use 70% of the power, which can save the cost of the laser;
The swing welding method, the width of the welding point is adjustable, and the welding fault tolerance is strong, which makes up for the small shortcomings of the laser welding point, expands the tolerance range of the processed parts and the width of the welding seam. Thus obtains a better welding seam forming effect.

Fifthly, 360 degree micro welding

After the laser beam is focused, a small spot can be obtained, which can be accurately positioned and used for group welding of small and micro-sized workpieces to realize mass production. Mainly used for welding thin-walled materials and precision parts. It can realize spot welding, butt welding, stitch welding, sealing welding, etc. It has high aspect ratio, small weld width, small affected area, small deformation, fast welding speed. What’s more, do not need to process or simple handling after welding.

XTLASER the introduction of laser welding machine Martin

XTLASER the introduction of laser welding machine Martin

There are many kinds of welding machines: Single spot single function, Single spot double function, Single spot multifunction. Both of them only have one weld head. There are still have two spots, three spots, four spots, even six spots. Different welding machines have different functions. Also, the efficiency is different.

Now we just introduce the fiber laser welding machine.

Principle of the laser welding machine: The laser has high power. We use high power to heat the metal area that we want to connect. The power of the laser can reach the materials’ internal. And let the metal melt. When the temperature becomes low. The materials will solidify to make the connection.

 

This is the new weld way. It focuses on thin wall materials, precision parts, etc.

Advantage of laser welding machine:

First, laser welding gun weight is light, easy to move.

Second, compact size, save floor space, easy to move

Third, IPG/Maxphotonics laser source, good quality, 100000 hours life span.

Fourth, Environment-friendly, protect operator health

Fifth, Fashion outlook.

Sixth, It can weld stainless steel, middle steel, carbon steel, aluminium sheet, iron plates, brass, steel, galvanized sheet and plates, other sheet metals and metal tubes.

 

The disadvantage of laser welding machines:

First, The position of the weldment must be very precise. And it must be within the focus range of the laser beam.

Second, The weld bead solidifies rapidly.

Third, The equipment is expensive. It is the biggest disadvantage.

Although there are many disadvantages. As technology develops, the price of laser source becomes lower and lower. So there will become more competitive compare with others’ welding machine.

How to use auxiliary gas correctly in laser welding-Teresa

How to use auxiliary gas correctly in laser welding

The role of auxiliary gas

In laser welding , auxiliary gas will affect weld formation, weld quality, weld penetration depth and penetration width. In most cases, blowing auxiliary gas will have a positive effect on the weld, but it may also cause damage. Come unfavorable effect.

Positive effects of auxiliary gas

1) The correct blowing of auxiliary gas will effectively protect the weld pool to reduce or even avoid oxidation;

2) The correct blowing of auxiliary gas can effectively reduce the spatter generated during welding;

3) The correct blowing of auxiliary gas can promote the uniform spread of the weld pool during solidification, making the weld shape uniform and beautiful;

4) The correct blowing of auxiliary gas can effectively reduce the shielding effect of the metal vapor plume or plasma cloud on the laser , and increase the effective utilization rate of the laser;

5) The correct blowing of auxiliary gas can effectively reduce weld pores.

As long as we choose the correct gas type, gas flow rate, and blowing method, we can get the perfect effect. However, improper use of auxiliary gas will also adversely affect welding.

Negative Effects of auxiliary gas

1) Incorrect blowing of auxiliary gas may cause deterioration of welds:

2) Choosing the wrong gas type may cause cracks in the weld, and may also reduce the mechanical properties of the weld;

3) Choosing the wrong gas blowing flow rate may cause more serious weld oxidation (whether the flow rate is too large or too small). It may also cause the weld pool metal to be seriously interfered by external forces and cause the weld to collapse or form unevenly;

4) Choosing the wrong gas blowing method will cause the welding seam to fail to achieve the protection effect or even basically no protection effect or have a negative influence on the welding seam formation;

5) Blowing in shielding gas will have a certain effect on the weld penetration, especially when welding thin plates, it will reduce the weld penetration.

Types of auxiliary gas

Commonly used auxiliary gases for laser welding are mainly N2, Ar, He, and their physical and chemical properties are different, and therefore their effects on the weld are also different.

1. Nitrogen N2

The ionization energy of N2 is moderate, higher than that of Ar and lower than that of He. Under the action of laser, the ionization degree is moderate, which can reduce the formation of plasma cloud and increase the effective utilization rate of laser. Nitrogen can chemically react with aluminum alloy and carbon steel at a certain temperature to produce nitrides, which will increase the brittleness of the weld, reduce the toughness, and will have a greater adverse effect on the mechanical properties of the weld joint. Therefore, we don’t suggest to use nitrogen to protect aluminum alloy and carbon steel when welding.

The nitride produced by the chemical reaction between nitrogen and stainless steel can increase the strength of the weld joint, which will help improve the mechanical properties of the weld. Therefore, nitrogen can be used as a shielding gas when welding stainless steel.

2. Argon Ar

The ionization energy of Ar is relatively low, and the ionization degree is high under the action of laser, which is not conducive to controlling the formation of plasma cloud, and will have a certain impact on the effective utilization of laser. However, the activity of Ar is very low and it is difficult to chemically interact with common metals. Besides, the cost of Ar is not high. In addition, the density of Ar is higher. It is beneficial for sinking to the top of the weld pool and can better protect the weld pool, so it can be used as a conventional shielding gas.

3. Helium He

He has the highest ionization energy, and the ionization degree is very low under the action of laser, which can well control the formation of plasma cloud. The laser can act on metals very well. And it has very low activity and basically does not chemically react with metals. It is a good shielding gas for welding seams, but the cost of He is too high. Generally, mass production products will not use this gas. He is generally used for scientific research or products with very high added value.
