Laser plastic welding

Principle of laser plastic welding

Most thermoplastic materials can be welded by laser in different configurations : butt welding, by transparency or by conduction.

It can be found in many industrial sectors (aeronautics, automotive, packaging, health ...)

Advantages of the process

  • Easy to use - Simplified part geometry 
  • Contactless and clean process
  • No move of the parts
  • No size limit
  • Process applicable to 3D parts
  • High mechanical resistance : few residual stresses
  • Perfect sealing, even on large parts
  • Spot heating - no interaction with peripherical components (ex. electronics)
  • Cycle time & costs

Materials : PE, PP, PA6, PA6.6, PA11, PA 12 ..., ABS, PC, PMMA, PEEK, PET, plastic composites …
