Handheld laser welding system has been trending laser welding equipment in the past few years. It focuses on large work pieces that are placed in long distance. It is so flexible that the space limitation is not a problem any more and it replaces the traditional light path. Therefore, handheld laser welding system makes outdoor mobile welding become reality.
The principle of handheld laser welding system is to post high energy laser light on the surface of the work piece. The laser and the material will interact with each other so that the inside of the material will melt and then cool down to become a welding line. This kind of welding features delicate welding line, fast welding speed, easy operation and no consumables required. In thin metal welding, handheld laser welding system can perfectly replace traditional TIG welding.
There are a few advantages of handheld laser welding system
1.Wide welding range
Generally speaking, handheld laser welding system is equipped with a 10m extension fiber line, which enables long-distance non-contact welding;
2. High flexibility
Handheld laser welding system is often equipped with caster wheels, so users can move it wherever they want;
3 . Multiple welding styles
Handheld laser welding system can achieve welding of any angles and also perform small power cutting as long as users replace the welding brass mouthpiece with cutting brass mouthpiece.
4. Excellent welding performance
Handheld laser welding machine features small heat affecting zone, high depth of weld, delicate welding line without post-processing.
Comparing with TIG welding, handheld laser welding system is able to perform welding of different metals with fast speed, little deformation, high precision, applicable to welding tiny & precise parts. And these can not be achieved by TIG welding. As for energy consumption, handheld laser welding system is only half of TIG welding, which means the production cost can reduce by 50%. In addition, handheld laser welding system doesn’t require post-processing, which is also cost saving. Therefore, it is believed that handheld laser welding system will replace TIG welding and becomes more and more widely used in metal processing industry.
Most of the handheld laser welding system is powered by fiber laser of 1000W-2000W. Fiber laser in this power range tends to generate a big amount of heat. To guarantee the normal running of the handheld laser welding system, its fiber laser source must be properly cooled. S&A Teyu develops RMFL series water chillers specifically designed for handheld laser welding system and features rack mount design. These rack mount chiller
s are equipped with an easy-to-read level check and convenient water fill port, which provides so much convenience to the users. The temperature stability of these laser chiller units is up to ±0.5℃.
