Laser welding with inert gas produces excellent quality contamination-free welds in a variety of materials with much less heat distortion than any other technique. Laser welding is ideally suited for hermetically sealed, vacuum, chemical, and aerospace parts. It is also excellent for medical parts in which no contamination or dissimilar materials are allowed.
The precise heat control provided by CNC laser welding enables us to weld foils as thin as 0.001" and hypodermic tubing with walls as small as 0.005", or less. Good heat control also allows us to routinely weld very thin foils to large housings.
We have special expertise in welding stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, tungsten, inconnel, nitinol, hastelloy, kovar, copper, alloy 20 and a variety of other metals including unusual and high hardness alloys. We can helium leak test your hermetic parts and we can cut and section weld samples for your critical parts.
Laser welding is the only technique for some products, and it is cost and quality competitive with TIG and MIG for many others.
