Laser Welding

Lasers make exceptional welding tools. Products that require low heat input, tiny weld beads (.020 inches in diameter) or have inaccessible weld area are excellent candidates for laser welding. Some of the materials being welded today are aluminum, stainless steel, kovar®, inconel®, monel®, titanium and more.
Our welding engineers have years of experience in welding dissimilar metals, joint design, production tooling and welding applications. Multiple welding centers assure on time delivery and additional capacity for high volume jobs.
