Laser Welding is ideal for applications requiring pin-point accuracy at high production rates. It’s non-contact, doesn’t require a vacuum, and is excellent for joining thin materials and small components.
Cost Effective and High Quality
EB Industries is a leading laser beam welding service provider delivering high quality, mission critical parts to customers all across the US. We have laser welded millions of parts and assemblies for customers in a multitude of industries, including critical medical and aerospace applications. We are ISO 13485:2016 and AS9100 certified, have full engineering and metallurgy capabilities, and our extensive pre and post processing services make us an excellent subcontractor and value added partner to our customers.
Application Advantages of Laser Welding
Deep Weld Penetration – Weld penetration can be closely controlled, and ranges from a minuscule 0.005 inches to a depth of up to 0.25 inches.
Micro Part Welding – Given the small and precise nature of the laser beam, very small and very thin materials can be easily joined. This includes welding of foils, stents, sensor diaphragms, and surgical instruments.
Low Heat – Pulsed lasers can minimize the amount of heat applied to a part, thus helping to keep critical electronics and other components cool.
Dissimilar and Crack Sensitive Material Welding – Laser welding can join dissimilar materials and also crack sensitive materials.
No Vacuum Requirement – Laser welding does not require the parts be in a vacuum, which can result in faster production cycles.
High Feed Rates – Laser welding can occur at feed rates up to 200 inches per minute, which is much faster than conventional welding processes such as MIG and TIG. High feed rates mean faster welds and lower costs.
A comparison of welding processes:
Typical Weld Cost
Limited to vacuum chamber size
None if done manually
Good w/stir welding
Depth (max penetration)
Shallow wout multipass & notch
Width to Depth ratio (min w/d%)
Low (pulsed) / High (CW)
Purity (no electrode/filler)
Limited based on process
Highly with CNC
Highly with CNC
Limited / manual w/out CNC
Hard to reach area
Good – gas coverage concerns
Capital Investment (barrier to entry)
