Emerson’s Laser Welder Improves Manufacturing Efficiency and Quality of Smaller Plastic Parts

Technology and engineering company Emerson, St. Louis, Missouri, has introduced the Branson GLX Micro Laser Welder, supporting the need to manufacture smaller and more delicate plastic parts used in the medical and consumer electronics industries.

The benchtop version uses advanced laser technology and incredibly low clamp force to produce precise, clean and repeatable welds of superior aesthetic quality and performance.

The GLX Micro uses patented Simultaneous Through-Transmission Infrared® (STTlr®) laser welding technology, enabling manufacturers to achieve superior weld strength and quality with exceptional speed and flexibility. 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. This method is highly repeatable and stable, helping to increase production throughput.
