The advancements in the laser technology has resulted in its wide usage and laser beams a “commonplace”. The laser welding process is used for welding a wide range of materials. Laser welding equipment finds its application on the materials with high heat conduction and higher melting point. The method aids the joining of components that needs high speed welding and low thermal distortion. The laser welding process has majority of its application in exotic applications where no other welding process would be suitable.
The product is highly demanded by the essential growth sectors such as photovoltaic, entertainment electronics, medical device technology etc. The continued growth in the photovoltaic demand and succeeding its production is greatly responsible for the growth of global laser welding equipment market. The equipment provides with high precision, flexibility and productivity which allows mass production of innovative products.
