MetalLaser marking, drilling, welding and cutting of metals
Laser marking is a versatile solution for making permanent marks on metal parts for traceability, identification or personalization. This non-contact, precise marking method offers many advantages over traditional mechanical marking techniques.
Lasers offer higher precision and better heat control compared to other welding methods due to the high-energy, focused nature of the beam. Accompanied by assist gases, laser welds have limited discoloration and require little to no post-processing. Metal laser welding typically utilizes high-power fiber lasers, which deliver the beam to the small laser output head—eliminating the need to excite crystals or gases. This feature lets us design flexible systems that can weld many different parts.
Thin Metal Cutting
Lasers enable high-precision cutting while making no contact with thin metal parts. The localized laser energy with on-axis air assist achieves cuts with minimal kerf widths and heat-affected zones. Depending on your application requirements, you can use either gas-assisted or galvanometer-steered cutting.
Laser drilling offers superior speed and lower operating costs compared to other drilling methods. Metal drilling is common in a variety of industries—from automotive to medical device manufacturing.
