Laser welding technology
High quality and precision plastic joinings with Panasonic’s laser welding method
The new laser welding system of the VL-W1 series is based on the technology of quasi-simultaneous welding. With this method, plastic layers can be welded together by laser emission and heat build-up at the adjacent surfaces without the need for adhesives. One of the characteristics of the quasi-simultaneous welding is that the laser beam is directed very fast (quasi-simultaneously) around the component to be welded. Main advantage: the component is joined together regularly so that no warping occurs. Furthermore, using the laser guarantees a high flexibility of the welding seam geometry.
