A unique method for bonding cylindrical components whereby a mirror deflects the laser beam such that it impinges radially on the outside symmetrical surface of the component. The tight fit between the joining parts ensures the clamping pressure required for the welding process. The component remains in a fixed position during the circumferential, continuous welding process.
Characteristics and application:
• Suitable for different diameters
• No rotational movement
• High throughput
• No clamping device required
