Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, laser welding machines are very effective at welding stainless steel. Stainless steel is one of the most commonly welded materials with laser welding techniques. Laser welding offers several advantages when working with stainless steel, making it a popular choice for a variety of industrial applications. The stainless steel laser welding machine utilizes fiber laser technology to produce a focused and precise laser beam. This concentrated energy enables deep penetration welding of stainless steel, ensuring a strong and reliable weld.

At present, laser welding has become the preferred method for joining stainless steel parts in automotive, aerospace, medical equipment, kitchenware, electronics, and other industries. Whether it is precision welding of small stainless steel parts or high-speed welding of large structural components, laser welding machines provide efficient and reliable solutions for the processing of stainless steel materials.

Stainless steel is a versatile material, available in a variety of grades and alloys, each with its unique properties. Laser welding machines can typically weld a variety of stainless steel types, but specific capabilities may depend on the machine’s power, settings, and type of laser used. Here are some common types of stainless steel that can typically be welded using a laser welding machine:

  • Austenitic Stainless Steels: These are the most common types of stainless steel and include grades like 304 (18-8 stainless), 316 (marine grade stainless), and 321. They offer good corrosion resistance and are often used in applications requiring high strength and excellent formability.
  • Ferritic Stainless Steels: Grades such as 430 are part of this group. They are magnetic, have good corrosion resistance, and are often used in automotive applications, appliances, and architectural trim.
  • Martensitic Stainless Steels: These stainless steels are known for their hardness and are often used in applications requiring high strength and wear resistance, such as knives and turbine blades.
  • Duplex Stainless Steels: These steels combine the properties of both austenitic and ferritic stainless steels, offering high strength and excellent corrosion resistance. They are commonly used in chemical processing, oil and gas, and marine applications.
  • Precipitation Hardening (PH) Stainless Steels: These stainless steels can be strengthened by heat treatment, offering high strength and corrosion resistance. They are often used in aerospace, nuclear, and petrochemical industries.

When considering a stainless steel laser welding machine, you must ensure that the machine is sized appropriately for the specific grade of stainless steel you wish to weld. Some stainless steel alloys may require specific welding parameters for optimal results. You can consult with an AccTek Laser engineer to determine compatibility with the types of stainless steel you plan to weld and get advice on setup and techniques for achieving high-quality welds.

The cost of a stainless steel laser welding machine can vary widely, depending on various factors such as the machine’s specifications, power output, features, brand reputation, and the supplier you choose. Generally, a stainless steel laser welding machine is considered a great investment in an industrial setting due to the advanced technology and features involved.

According to a rough estimate, the cost of a stainless steel laser welding machine can range from several thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. For example, the cost of a 1500w laser welding machine is between US$4,500 and US$13,000, while the price of a 3000w laser welding machine integrated with an automated robot is between US$15,000 and US$50,000.

It should be noted that the purchase cost of the machine is only a part of the overall investment. Other factors to consider include installation, training, maintenance, and ongoing operating costs such as power consumption and consumables such as shielding gas. In addition, it is recommended to consider the long-term return on investment (ROI) in terms of increased productivity, improved weld quality, and reduced operating costs.

In stainless steel laser welding, shielding gas is used to protect the weld pool and prevent oxidation and contamination during the welding process. The choice of shielding gas affects weld quality and overall weld performance. The gases most commonly used when laser welding stainless steel are:

  • Argon (Ar): Argon is the most widely used shielding gas for laser welding stainless steel. It is cost-effective, readily available, and provides good protection against atmospheric gases such as oxygen and nitrogen, which can negatively affect weld quality. Argon helps prevent oxidation of the molten metal during welding, reducing the risk of weld defects and improving overall weld quality.
  • Helium (He): Helium is often used in combination with argon or as an alternative shielding gas for laser welding stainless steel. Helium has better heat dissipation and higher energy density, making it beneficial for higher-power laser welding applications or welding thicker stainless steel materials. However, helium is generally more expensive than argon, which may affect its use based on cost considerations.
  • Nitrogen (N2): Nitrogen can be used as a shielding gas for laser welding stainless steel, especially ferritic stainless steel. While it’s not as common as argon or helium, it offers good protection against oxidation. It helps reduce the formation of chromium carbides during welding, which leads to the depletion of chromium and reduces corrosion resistance. Nitrogen is sometimes used in certain applications to achieve specific welding characteristics.
  • Oxygen (O2): While oxygen is not typically used as a shielding gas in laser welding stainless steel, in certain specific cases, controlled amounts of oxygen can be introduced to enhance the cutting or welding process. However, excessive oxygen content will lead to increased oxidation and adversely affect the welding quality and corrosion resistance of stainless steel.

The choice of gas depends on the specific requirements of the welding application, the grade of stainless steel being welded, and the desired weld quality and penetration. In some cases, gas mixtures such as argon-helium or argon-nitrogen can be used to achieve the desired welding results.

Proper gas flow rate and nozzle design are also important factors to consider to ensure effective gas coverage of the weld pool and avoid excessive turbulence during welding. Welding parameters, including gas flow rate and focus position, are typically adjusted during laser welding to achieve the best results for specific materials and joint configurations.

The maximum thickness of stainless steel that a laser welder can weld depends largely on the power of the laser. Here is a general breakdown based on laser power:

  • 1000W Laser: can weld stainless steel with a thickness of 0.5mm to 1.5mm.
  • 1500W Laser: capable of welding stainless steel from 0.5mm to 2mm thick.
  • 2000W Laser: can weld stainless steel with a thickness of 0.5mm to 3mm.
  • 3000W Laser: capable of welding stainless steel from 0.5mm to 4mm thick.

These specifications outline the thickness range over which stainless steel can be effectively welded at each laser power level. It is important to note that these are general guidelines only and actual performance may vary based on factors such as material composition, joint design, welding speed, and other process parameters.
