Product designers and process engineers considering laser welding as an alternative to more conventional types of welding, such as MIG-MAG or/and TIG arc welding, will find each has its plusses and minuses. But for most applications laser welding is a cleaner, more precise, and more controlled method of welding and is especially much faster and better controllable.

THE MOST ECONOMICAL WAY OF WELDING
W = WATER Cooled
DUE TO ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMICAL IRRESPONSABILITY IF COMPARED TO OUR AIR COOLED SERIES, WE HAVE STOPPED THE FULL PRODUCTION OF WATERCOOLED LASER WELDING MACHINES
Due to the much higher energy consumption, lack of flexibility, the long heating-up time in the winter at start-up, the huge space requirements and the major big weight from the water cooled laser welding machines, we decided to stop the production of the water cooled laser welding machines. Our Air cooled laser welding machines with build in invertor driven heath pump outperform all the water cooled versions, which made it ecological and economical irresponsable to offer or sell still this old inefficient, space and energy eating devices. Although the purchase price of water-cooled laser welding machines is interesting, this investment is a very bad choice for our environment and your wallet.
Thank you for your understanding.
Lasers can weld many different types of materials together. Stainless steel, titanium,nickel, aluminum, molybdenum, and Inconel are just a few of the metals that are
well-suited to laser welding. What is important to note, however, is that not all metal combinations are weldable.
Aluminum, for example, can be laser welded. However,only dissimilar grades of aluminum can be welded together due to a high probability of cracking.
This is one area where laser welding differs from conventional welding. In conventional welding, the metals don’t bond directly with one another, but rather with the ﬁller material being used. This can be a major factor in determining whether or not a particular application lends itself to laser welding.
|Aluminum 1050, 3003 and 6061 to 4047||are OK. Continuous wave welding increases weldability of alloys such as 5052 and 5082.|
|Aluminum alloys should be tested thoroughly for crack sensitivity|
|Aluminum 1100||Welds well, but needs to be welded with dissimilar aluminum|
|Aluminum 2219||Welds well, but needs to be welded with dissimilar aluminum|
|Aluminum 2024/5052/6061||Requires filler material|
|Beryllium Copper||Low reflectivity so welds well - Potential safety hazard exists from the beryllium oxide fumes|
|Copper||High reflectivity creates uneven welds|
|Good to medium welds. High energy levels required to overcome surface reflectivity unless 532 nm wavelength welding laser used.|
|Cu-Zn Brasses||Out-gassing of Zn prevents good welds|
|Hastelloy-X||Welds well, with specific pulse rates|
|Molybdenum||Brittle weld but weld may be acceptable for low strength weld requirements|
|Nickel||Good weld, but must be cleaned|
|Nickel alloys||Good welds, especially with alloys such as Hastelloy-X, Inconel 600 and 718|
|Inconel 625 - Welds well, but some tendency for porosity in deep welds|
|Nitinol||Good welds. Care needed to avoid brittleness|
|Monel||Good weld, good penetration|
|Phosphor bronze||Good welds|
|Steel, Carbon||Good welds with carbon content under 0.25%|
|Carbon content should be less than 0.12% for pulsed welding, up to 0.2% for continuous wave welding|
|Steel, Galvanized||Porous, brittle weld|
|Steel Stainless||304 and 304L produce excellent welds|
|316 and 316L are OK provided Cr/Ni ratio is greater than 1.7|
|300 Stainless - Welds well|
|303 is not recommended due to cracking tendencies. Can be matched with friendlier materials such as 304. A CW laser can be used to increase weldability.|
|3030 and 303SE which cracks - no good welds|
|400 series require testing for crack sensitivity.|
|Steel, 17-4 PH Stainless||Welds well with post weld|
|Tantalum||Welds well but oxidation likely|
|Titanium||Welds well but oxidation likely|
|Tungsten||Weld can be brittle|
|Material 1||Material 2||Comments|
|Aluminium||Cold rolled steel||Can be bonded - brittle intermetallics are created at the interface. Fitness for purpose testing essential.|
|Aluminium||Copper||Can be bonded - brittle intermetallics are created at the interface. Fitness for purpose testing essential.|
|Stainless steel||Nitinol||Can be bonded - brittle intermetallics are created at the interface. Fitness for purpose testing essential.|
|Stainless steel||Inconel||OK with certain alloys (304 with 600/700), need to watch for cracking. When welding, offset into the steel to promote high Cr/N ratio in weld metal|
|Titanium||Aluminium||OK with certain aluminium alloys (1xxx & Ti-6Al-4V)|
