Titanova offers the benefits of both hot and cold wire feed laser welding

Titanova in its continuing effort to develop new laser process technologies for the benefit of the industry is offering both hot and cold wire enhanced laser welding.

This unique laser process application offers improve weld root reinforcement over laser autogenous welding.

The wire feed laser welding process is a very clean spatter free process that is similar to TIG welding but at a much faster weld speeds.   This leads to a much lower cost at a cheaper price for our customers.  So in addition to the low heat input leading to lower weld distortions one can get an excellent and almost perfect fillet weld using laser wire feed welding.

Opening up new opportunities

Since the laser is such a controllable heat source the wire feed laser welding technique allow for much smaller wire diameters and therefore much thinner gauges as compared to traditional MIG or TIG welding.
