How to Choose the Most Suitable Handheld Fiber Laser Welding Machine?

June 17, 2021

There are different levels of fiber laser welding machine suppliers on the market. It is very difficult to figure out which one is good or not. Some suppliers are professional laser factories, while some are just small trading offices without laser technical support.

How to demonstrate the handheld fiber laser welding machine professionally? That it is important that customers get clear before purchasing and finally buy a satisfactory machine without worrying too much about after-sale service.

Best Laser aims to explain the machine details from the manufacturing aspect in the hope of helping customers find the most suitable handheld fiber laser welding machine.

1. Power

To choose the right handheld fiber laser welding machine, first need to consider the power, because it directly decides whether it welds your material. Different laser power welds different thickness materials. 1000w, 1500w, and 2000w are the most common power. Below is the welding thickness table form for reference.

2. The Brand of Fiber Laser Source

Handheld fiber laser welding machine adopts a continuous fiber laser source as a core component, which directly decides the whole machine’s stability and durability. Most welcomed brands are JPT, Raycus, and Max, which have been tested by the market to be stable performance, so the cost is a little higher than other unknown brands.

3. ,

As a key component of the machine, the handheld welding gun greatly affects the laser output beam quality and efficiency. There are two kinds of welding guns on the market: single-swing welding and double-swing welding. Single swing generates spot or line mode of laser, while double swing generates spot, line, circle, double circle, triangle, double triangle 6 kinds of lase mode. Especially triangle mode, it has big help on the welding strength and effect. 

4. Other Key components

A. Water Chiller

It is very important to choose a strong chiller because the cooling effect or the accuracy of temperature control directly affects the working efficiency of the laser output components. In addition to the cooling of the fiber laser source, the laser IQB output head and the handheld welding head require water cooling too.

B. Stability of the control circuit: such as the brand of switching power supply, the use of relays and contactors

C. Nozzle type configuration: usually for inner corner, outer corner, flat corner, wire feeding, cutting

D. Software and touch screen function types and ease of use.

5. Detection software and multiple protection functions

Continuous fiber laser auxiliary detection software, if a failure occurs, the cause of the failure can be quickly detected and eliminated quickly, because the detection software is a powerful assistant.

I hope that the above sharing will help users who are preparing to buy a handheld fiber laser welding machine. Should you any questions or problems, please feel free to contact us!
