Easy To Use Handheld Laser Welding

With IPG’s new LightWELD Handheld Laser Welding Systems, productivity is the watchword.

  • In speed terms, it welds up to 4x faster than traditional methods.
  • For ease of use and minimising learning time, it couldn’t be simpler to operate.
  • Intuitive controls allow laser power up to 1500W to be easily adjusted to quickly dial in the optimum weld setting for various materials and thicknesses.
  • With 74 stored pre-set and user defined process parameters, welding beginners can be trained and ready to weld in a matter of hours.

Further enhanced productivity comes from high quality, consistent welding of thick, thin and reflective materials. A minimal heat affected zone means minimal distortion, undercut or burn through so less scrap and lower cost-per-part.

Ergonomic laser gun

LightWELD Handheld Laser Welding  System

At the sharp end of LightWELD is its ergonomically designed laser gun with built-in wobble welding functionality. Proven to be the most comfortable and easy to use laser gun, it has a 2-step trigger and part control sensor to ensure operator safety.

Purpose-built nozzle tips are available for various weld joint types and pre- and post-weld cleaning applications.

The system can quickly switch from laser welding to wire welding and from laser welding to laser cleaning.

Fast set-up

Clearly labelled connections at the rear of the base unit make getting started fast and easy.

An ethernet computer connection gives access to advanced parameter settings allowing operators to fine tune these parameters and then save them.

CE approved

Carrying the CE mark, LightWELD is compliant with EU legislation and meets EU safety, health and environmental regulations.

Operator safety has been a priority in LightWELD’s development with a range of protective features. These include a key switch control to secure the system from unauthorised use.

As well as the 2-step weld gun trigger there’s an emergency stop button for immediate shut down.

A door switch interlock circuit shuts down the laser if anyone other than the operator enters the welding area.

A safety interlock verifies the integrity of laser delivery to the welding gun. A part contact electrical interlock turns off the laser power if the welding head is not in contact with the welded parts.

Fast, easy and versatile with consistent high quality results, the IPG LightWELD laser welding system is ready to revolutionise the Welding Industry.
