Hybrid welding is our solution for all special cases:
Combining laser welding with another welding process creates synergy effects. They have a positive effect on the overall process in a wide variety of ways:
The clear advantages of laser welding, such as deep penetration and low deformation, are complemented by advantages of gas-shielded welding, for example. These include high gap bridging and gap tolerance. Another advantage of hybrid welding is altered metallurgical effects that enable previously inconceivable material pairings. In addition, greater material thicknesses as well as versatile additional materials can be processed.
At TM Lasertechnik, this process, some of which was developed in-house, is fully automated and robot-supported. Thus, we guarantee 100% reproducibility with consistently high quality.
What is hybrid welding?
Hybrid welding is the combination of several melting or heat conduction processes that run synchronized in the welding process. The laser always forms the center and basis of the overall process.
The advantages of hybrid welding:
The combination possibilities of the processes result in higher usable energy densities. This effect allows, for example, larger material thicknesses to be processed with consistently low material distortion.
A wide selection of filler materials is possible. Combinations that are not feasible in conventional welding can be processed in this process with unprecedentedly high results.
Hardly any spatter, weld bead or flash formation.
