Laser Hybrid Weld

Compared to traditional Tandem and MAG welding, considerable savings in production time and filler material are possible. Single pass weld seams can be welded without preparation even in the case of thick plate with material thicknesses of more than 10 mm. In addition, a high weld speed can be reached even when welding thin plate. It is not only the automotive industry that demands high-quality weld seams: due to the minimum rework required, the MIG/MAG LASER HYBRID WELDING Process is becoming more popular in companies that manufacture components for commercial vehicles, railway carriages and construction machinery.
