Laser Welding

Winbro offers a range of high-precision 5-axis laser welding machines. Continuous Waveform (CW) Laser welding offers a number of advantages over other welding techniques, including:

  • Up to 10 x faster and produces higher quality welds compared to conventional methods such as TiG, MiG, arc or brazing
  • More effective & consistent than pulse laser welding with flash lamp or solid-state sources
  • Much less expensive to buy and operate than Electron Beam
  • Laser is effective with dissimilar materials and bright metal alloys; welds plastics together and to metals
  • Winbro process is autogenous – no filler required

Laser welding is particualrly well-suited to high-value engineering sectors such as:

  • Automotive, especially powertrain and fueling
  • Electric vehicle components and fuel cells
  • Medical devices
  • Sensors and transducers
  • Valves
  • Hydrogen pipework and fittings
  • Power generation, esp. pressure vessels and pipework
  • Nuclear
  • Aerospace
