What Is the Difference Between Laser Welding Vs Arc Welding

There are many types of welding machines in the laser welding market. How to choose the right welding equipment has attracted people’s attention, especially the difference between laser welding vs arc welding. This article will introduce it in detail.

DOWEL portable laser welding machine is simple to operate, easy to carry, greatly accelerates the welding speed, lightweld 1500 handheld laser welder is easy to learn and operate, and provides higher quality consistent results in a wider range of materials and thicknesses without deformation or undercut Or burn through.

Difference between laser welding vs arc welding

  1. Laser welding: laser radiation heats the surface to be processed, and the surface heat diffuses to the inside through heat conduction. By controlling the laser parameters such as the width, energy, peak power and repetition frequency of the laser pulse, the workpiece is melted to form a specific molten pool.
  2. Argon arc welding: On the basis of the principle of ordinary arc welding, the metal welding material is protected by argon gas, and the welding material is melted into liquid form on the welded base material through high current to form a molten pool, so that the welded metal and A welding technology in which the welding material achieves metallurgical bonding. Due to the continuous supply of argon gas during high-temperature melting welding, the welding material cannot be in contact with oxygen in the air, thereby preventing the oxidation of the welding material.

Laser welding vs arc weldingapplication fields

  1. Laser welding: Laser tailored welding technology has been widely used in foreign car manufacturing; laser welding has been widely used in the electronics industry, especially in the microelectronics industry.
  2. Argon arc welding: Argon arc welding is suitable for welding non-ferrous metals and alloy steels that are easy to oxidize (mainly welding of Al, Mg, Ti and their alloys and stainless steel); suitable for single-sided welding and double-sided forming, such as bottom welding Welding with pipes; argon tungsten arc welding is also suitable for thin plate welding.

Laser welding machine and the argon arc welding process

  1. Laser welding: no need to use electrodes, there is no concern about electrode contamination or damage. The laser beam is easy to focus, align and be guided by optical instruments. It can be placed at an appropriate distance from the workpiece, and can be guided between tools or obstacles around the workpiece. Other welding methods cannot be used due to the above-mentioned space limitations. .
  2. Argon arc welding: The arc combustion of argon arc welding is stable, the heat is concentrated, the arc column temperature is high, the welding production efficiency is high, the heat affected zone is narrow, and the welded parts are welded with low stress, deformation and crack tendency; argon arc welding is obvious Arc welding is convenient for operation and observation.

How to increase conversions with a hand held laser welder

The efficiency of laser welding may be improved by choosing the right welding process. The higher frequency or infrared lasers are more efficient for elongated parts. They are more likely to keep the depth consistent when compared to the CO2 process.

How much does a portable laser welding machine cost?

Owning a powerful industrial-grade laser machine may cost you a lot of money! Fortunately, we have some excellent industrial-grade high-quality lightweld handheld laser welding system in DOWELL. They are affordable from US$9410 to US$14,000 and will be an excellent investment for your business.

Portable handheld laser welding machines have many advantages, including their ability to quickly produce strong, consistent joints on essentially any metal thickness. The lightweld 1500 laser design also makes them easy to use by almost anyone in manufacturing plants around the world. Very suitable for people who want to weld more!

The main laser welding advantages :

  1. Fast speed, large depth and small deformation.
  2. It can be welded at room temperature or under special conditions, and the welding equipment is simple. For example, when a laser passes through an electromagnetic field, the beam will not shift; Laser can weld in vacuum, air and some gas environment, and can weld through glass or materials transparent to the beam.
  3. It can weld refractory materials such as titanium and quartz, and can is required. Welds magnetic materials also. Aspect ratios mean depth-to-width ratio of the order of 10:1 are attainable in LBM.
