By Keven Tremblay on May 15, 2024

With the rapid growth of EVs in the automotive industry, battery welding has become an important challenge to keep up with demanding production requirements. At Laserax, we have developed a laser welding cell that addresses these challenges.

Automated Laser Welding: What You Need to Know
By Keven Tremblay on May 14, 2024

Not so long ago, CO2 lasers were the only lasers available for laser welding—and they had important limitations for automation. The arrival of fiber laser technology has drastically changed the landscape, offering high speed, high precision, low maintenance, and rock-solid stability through movements and vibrations.

Laser Welding Copper: Fiber, Blue, or Green Lasers?
By Catherine Veilleux on April 30, 2024

Industrial laser welding of copper is in growing demand. One reason is the electrification of the automotive industry, where various electrical components are made of copper to improve electrical and thermal conductivity. 

Robot-Assisted Laser Welding for Emerging Applications
By Keven Tremblay on April 24, 2024

Lasers and robotics are both used by manufacturers for their speed and precision. It’s natural that these two technologies frequently work hand in hand in production lines to perform laser welding.

What is Laser Welding and How Does It Work?
By Catherine Veilleux on April 16, 2024

We’ve reached a time where laser welding is not only viable for high-volume production lines, but also for all types of manufacturers. With laser welding being so accessible, now is a good time to explore this proven process that promises precision, speed, and cost effectiveness. 

Fiber Laser Welding: Advantages, Systems and Applications
By Stéphane Melançon on May 05, 2023

Fiber laser welding is a welding process that uses a laser beam as the heat source. As non-contact tools, fiber lasers are low maintenance and offer fast welding speeds. The laser beam is highly precise and has a low heat input, which minimizes damage to the material

How Laser Weld Monitoring Systems Work
By Stéphane Melançon on April 07, 2023

Laser welding needs to be controlled to detect bad welds and ensure quality. Ensuring good weld quality is getting more challenging, as laser welding is increasingly used for micro welding applications that demand more precision, like battery tab welding in the automotive industry. 

Laser Spot Welding & Laser Seam Welding in 2024
By Stéphane Melançon on February 14, 2023

Laser spot welding is a welding process that uses the power of a laser beam to join two metal surfaces at a single spot. Laser seam welding is when surfaces are welded over a long, continuous surface.
