The laser welding process utilises an amplified beam of light at a specific wavelength to create a solid and almost seamless weld in seconds. It sounds like a complicated process but is really very simple.
The beam of light emitted from a laser welder is concentrated, adjusted and controlled by the operator, in much the same way as the flame of a soldering torch is regulated by a jeweller. However, compared to soldering, laser welding is faster, cleaner, and more cost-effective for many manufacturing and repair applications.
This type of welding application is perfect for use on precious metals, which is why most jewellers in Australia use jewellery laser welding machines.
