Like traditional welding processes, laser welding aims to join two parts together. However, a CO2 laser will do it better, faster and with greater accuracy. CO2 laser are succesfully used as a heat source for welding operations. The laser beam heats the edges of two part to be processed: heat will melt the material, causing the two parts to fuse where they are contiguous. Its main field of applications are on plastic polymers and on metals. Through laser welding, you can also process all those regions that can't be reached ordinarily: difficult parts or joints won't be an issue anymore. El.En.'s RF CO2 laser sources coupled with Scanfiber (for fiber laser) or GioScan (for CO2 laser) laser scan heads, have the key features for great welding results. Beam quality and size, power range and components, all those parameters have been engineered to let you obtain great results for applications on metals and plastic materials in the automotive, lcd and packaging industries.
