Emerson Automation introduced its Branson GLX-Micro laser welder that delivers precise, clean, and repeatable welds of delicate and intricate plastic components.
This benchtop welder uses the patented Simultaneous Through-Transmission Infrared® (STTlr®) laser welding technology. With STTIr, all lasers are fired simultaneously to heat, melt, and bond the component parts along the entire weld surface in 0.5 to 5 seconds, depending on material and geometric complexity.
This method is highly repeatable and stable, helping to increase production throughput.
STTlr also eliminates the use of friction which may generate flash and particulates, thereby ensuring smooth and barely visible weld lines can be incorporated into product designs. With STTlr, highly complex 3D contours can be accommodated, allowing designers to create parts for maximum functionality and ergonomic appeal.
The GLX-micro offers a very low clamp force of 1 Newton, enabling the joining of small and very delicate parts, including those with embedded electronics and sensors.
This laser welder is cleanroom compatible, having a stainless-steel design, requiring no lubricants, and being powered from a remote electrical cabinet that can be positioned outside the production area.
