Why Are Laser Welding Machines So Expensive?

With the widespread application of laser welding technology, Hangao Tech (SEKO Machinery) found that it received many inquiries about stainless steel pipe laser welding production lines. More and more customers are interested in high-speed laser welding stainless steel pipe production lines. However, many customers who want to buy a laser production line will feel that the price of laser welding machines is generally higher after understanding the quotation. This is especially true for some brands that are slightly more famous. Many people don’t know why and even think that manufacturers are falsely reporting prices. In fact, there are many factors that affect the price of laser welding machines. You’ll understand after reading the content below!

From the perspective of hardware configuration, the laser welding machine is a device integrated with several systems. The main components are the laser, platform, gantry, and control system.

First of all, lasers generally use high-power fiber lasers. Even though high-power fiber lasers can now be produced domestically, the price of a single laser cannot be purchased at tens of thousands of yuan. Moreover, the laser welding machine needs to be equipped with a separate welding joint, and the price will become very considerable.

Secondly, the size of the platform and gantry also directly determines the price of the welding machine. After all, machine control and positioning can be completed on this.

Thirdly, although the field of control systems belongs to the field of software development, we as equipment manufacturers do not know much about it. However, there are only a few welding operating systems commonly used in the industry, and the copyright fee is a large expense. Some laser welding machine brands even have their own developed control systems and programs, and have applied for relevant patents, and the prices are quite astonishing.

Finally, plus taxes and reasonable profits, reserved after-sales maintenance costs, and transportation costs, the price will definitely be many times higher than that of traditional argon arc welding machines or plasma welding machines.

Analyze the reasons for the high price of laser welding machines at the welding process level:

1. Laser welding is non-contact welding. It does not require pressure during the operation. It has fast welding speed, high efficiency, large depth, small residual stress and deformation. It can be welded at room temperature or under special conditions (such as a closed space). Welding The equipment is simple and does not produce X-rays.

2. It can weld refractory materials such as high-melting point metals, and can even be used to weld non-metallic materials such as ceramics and organic glass. It has good welding effect on special-shaped materials and has great flexibility. It can be used for welding that is difficult to access. Non-contact remote welding is performed on the parts.

3. The laser beam can be focused to obtain a very small spot. Since it is not affected by the magnetic field and can be positioned accurately, it can be used for micro welding and is suitable for assembly welding of micro and small workpieces produced in large quantities.

4. The laser beam can easily split the beam according to time and space. The metal laser welding machine equipment features can switch the device to transmit the laser beam to multiple workstations. Therefore, it can perform multi-beam simultaneous processing and multi-station processing, providing more precise welding. Conditions are provided.

5. Because laser welding is a non-contact process, there are no problems such as tool loss and tool replacement. At the same time, it does not require the use of electrodes, so there is no concern about electrode contamination or damage, and it is easy to perform high-speed welding through automation. It can also be controlled digitally or by computer.

6. Technical requirements: As long as you have some basic computer knowledge, ordinary employees are enough. Unlike traditional welding machines, which require experienced and skilled masters. This once again saves a relative part of the company's funds.

In fact, the cost of a good quality laser welding machine is already very expensive. Coupled with factors such as training and after-sales, the price will naturally be very high. However, laser welding machines also bring stable and reliable economic benefits to enterprises.
