AlphaLaserCampaign MachineLaser Powder Welding

Laser powder welding directs a laser beam through a processing head with focusing optics. The processing head delivers a powdered metal alloy substance in a conical shape directly into the beam path. The powder then liquifies at the precise location of the laser beam and generates a small pool of molten base, or filler, material with minimal heat input. This advantage limits distortion of the substrate and reduces additional corrective machining on thinner materials and smaller assemblies. 

The 900 watt fiber laser power source fills the gap between our micro laser welding systems (5 - 140 watts) and our large format CO2 laser (500 - 5,000 watts).

Our large format CO2 laser (500 - 5,000 watts) provides deep penetration welds and the joining of different materials, but the lack of heat input control can produce inconsistent parts. Our smaller micro lasers produce a minimal heat input that narrows the heat affected zone (HAZ) necessary for thinner materials and smaller assemblies, but they fail to achieve the depth of penetration that some of our customers require.

The laser powder welder fills that void by combining the high-powered laser of the large format CO2 laser with the controlled heat input of the micro laser welding system to provide. 

Our ability to introduce filler material into varying geometries and fit characteristics allows our customers to produce tight tolerance components required for laser welding and compensation for poor-fit assembly details.

Multi-Axis Laser Cutting & Welding

5-axis Trumpf Laser

Multi-Axis Laser Cutting and Welding Center

Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. provides multi-axis precision laser cutting, drilling and welding to meet the tight tolerances required by the aerospace and other industries. We also work with three dimensional parts that require drilling & cutting on difficultly curved surfaces or at extreme angles for fabricators, metal spinners and hydroformers.

Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. utilizes the 5000 watt TRULASER CELL 7040 from Trumpf. With a working range of 13 feet X, 5 feet Y, and 30” in the Z axis, and maximum simultaneous axis speeds of 98 inches per second, it is the most advanced system of its kind in the Midwest.

With the ability to construct a cutting and welding program from a CAD model, the prep time is greatly reduced.

The use of its integrated rotary axis makes processing of tubular components highly efficient.
