  • VERSATILE: Wide range of materials – up to 1/4 in. (6.35 mm)
  • EASY: Optimized presets reduce learning curve
  • CONSISTENT: High-quality, repeatable results
  • FLEXIBLE: Simple and challenging applications
  • PRODUCTIVE: Pre- and post-weld cleaning capability

Laser Welding

High speed, low heat input, and a small HAZ make laser welding thick, thin, reflective materials, and materials with dissimilar thicknesses far less challenging for all skill levels.

LASER PRE-CLEANING

Pre-weld cleaning removes rust and other contaminants from materials and increases weld quality. This is much faster than manual cleaning and uses no chemicals or abrasives.

LASER POST-CLEANING

Post-weld cleaning removes heat discoloration and improves visual finishes without post-weld grinding.

Three LightWeld Models Available:

LightWeld-XR.png

LightWELD XR

Delivers a higher brightness beam for welding an extended range of materials and thicknesses up to 0.250” (6.35 mm), including reflective materials. Welding and cleaning materials such as titanium and copper are easy with LightWELD XR.

Laser power up to 1500 W is easily adjusted with intuitive controls to quickly dial in optimum weld settings for various materials and thicknesses. With 74 stored preset and user-defined process parameters, novice welders can be trained and welding in a matter of hours. Select stored modes provide up to 2500 W of high peak power for even greater welding capability. MWSCO is your LightWELD authorized dealer, sales and service for Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, in areas including Decorah, Mankato, Red Wing, Rochester, Winona, Altoona, Hudson, La Crosse, Madison, Marshfield, and Rothschild.

Unlike traditional methods, welding fixtures are simpler or not needed with LightWELD. Metals do not need to be pre-brushed or ground completely clean, and even novices can reliably weld materials with dissimilar thicknesses and high/low electrical conductivity. LightWELD welds dissimilar metals of different thicknesses with ease and creates aesthetic high-strength joints with minimal or no consumable wire.
