Multi-Axis Welding

LaserWeld 4-Axis: Standard, Compact and Micro

The 4-Axis Workcells are highly cost-efficient tools for welding of a wide range of metal components, enclosures and fabrications. The high peak power of the QCW laser provides deep penetration in highly reflective materials. With a rugged industrial construction, these systems are designed for thermal and mechanical stability and are easily programmed for maximum tool flexibility. Within the LaserWeld 4-Axis Series, the standard LaserWeld 4-Axis system is configured with enhanced-accuracy stages up to 500 mm travel, while the LaserWeld 4-Axis Compact and Micro systems provide motion system options at a lower cost-point for less demanding applications.
