Making the case for laser welding
Since the Industrial Revolution, manufacturing processes have become safer, more efficient and more profitable due to advancements in manufacturing technologies. No single technology has been more impactful to the world of sheet metal manufacturing than the laser. Its influence can be witnessed across the entire spectrum of manufacturing processes when it’s used not only as a tool for cutting, but also for welding.
Laser stir welding continues to advance
Laser stir welding is increasingly being utilized to improve weld quality, properties, and reliability for a wide range of industries – automotive, aerospace, and fabrication to name a few Improvements in laser beam quality and delivery capabilities are helping to spur this growth.
A little light construction—laser welding in three acts
Welding is said to be more art than science. In part, this is a nod to the vital, skilled work that welders perform. It’s also recognition of the fact that the physics of the process is really, really difficult to understand.
