Branson’s Laser Welding product line, the Radiance 3G and 3I, are unmatched in performance and flexibility with a completely modular system approach. Laser welding of plastics is an innovative welding technique based on the STTIr™“(Simultaneous through Transmission Infrared) principle where laser energy is passed through one plastic component (transmissive part) and absorbed by the second component (the absorptive part). This absorption results in heating and melting of the interface, and, with the application of a controlled clamp force, the parts are joined.
The major breakthrough in Laser technology is the ability to illuminate the entire welding surface simultaneously as compared to other techniques that rely on scanning of the weld joint
Applications where Laser has been used successfully include automotive sensors and control modules, filter assemblies, electronic enclosures, irrigation systems, and medical products.
