Ohio Laser has expanded its welding capabilities with the addition of a robotic fiber laser welding cell. Robotic laser welding offers many cost-saving advantages to the customer. It can reduce the overall weld time, decrease secondary processes (grinding, straightening, finishing) and eliminate the use of filler material. Laser welding increases weld tensile strength which creates a higher quality part or assembly.
Our laser welding team can provide custom engineered solutions for your parts and assemblies. We have an extensive background in welding and can take any GTAW (TIG) or GMAW (MIG) designed part and make minor modifications for better laser welding processing. Often, laser welding can replace bending operations for a higher quality, faster and more repeatable process. This technology not only increases throughput but also improves accuracy. Laser welding improves form, fit and function while reducing labor, increasing material utilization and improving the aesthetics of your part or assembly.
