Gain an Advantage with Robotic Laser Welding

Nov 16, 2010

Laser welding with industrial robots provides a wide range of advantages to manufacturing lines. They provide a cost-effective and flexible solution while also providing incredible precise results. Overall this produces a top quality product that keeps both the manufacturer and customer satisfied.

Welding manufacturing robots

Robot­ic laser weld­ing is a cost-effec­tive and flex­i­ble appli­ca­tion for achiev­ing high qual­i­ty weld­ments. The com­bined flex­i­bil­i­ty of the robot­ic arm and capa­bil­i­ties of laser weld­ing tech­nol­o­gy pro­duce very sophis­ti­cat­ed results.

In fact, laser weld­ing offers so many advan­tages that some com­pa­nies have switched their MIG and oth­er weld­ing appli­ca­tions over to laser welding. 

Fast, Pre­ci­sion-Dri­ven Welding:

The speed and accu­ra­cy pro­vid­ed by robot­ic laser weld­ing solu­tions is unpar­al­leled. The laser beam cre­ates a very deep and pre­cise weld, with­out inputting as much heat or ener­gy into the mate­r­i­al as is nec­es­sary for more tra­di­tion­al weld­ing appli­ca­tions. Because the heat-affect­ed zone is so much small­er, the weld­ment is more precise.

No Touch-Up Necessary:

Weld­ing with­out hav­ing to con­stant­ly rework or refin­ish? Most weld­ing process­es require a touch-up so the seam can look bet­ter. Not so with laser weld­ing.

Laser weld­ing is extreme­ly focused, which allows it to weld clean. There isn’t the dis­tor­tion in the base mate­r­i­al or seam that you often see with oth­er appli­ca­tions. The result­ing weld­ments are more attrac­tive, mak­ing this the per­fect appli­ca­tion for sheet met­al appli­ca­tions that require a clean fin­ished look. Final­ly, with less refin­ish / machin­ing work to be done, laser weld­ing is able to pro­vide faster pro­duc­tion times.


Laser weld­ing is an attrac­tive option because it is not lim­it­ed to a spe­cif­ic type of met­al. Instead, it is suit­able for a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent base mate­ri­als. This adds greater flex­i­bil­i­ty to the appli­ca­tion. In anoth­er way, robot­ic laser weld­ing offers extreme flex­i­bil­i­ty when it comes to weld­ing hard-to-access parts. The focused laser beam is more direct and less dam­ag­ing to the mate­r­i­al.
