Learning about the characteristics of microwelding lasers, such as ND:YAG and the different types of fiber lasers, can help fabricators determine which is the best option for a particular application.
As the move toward part miniaturization continues, more and more companies are turning to microwelding for the precision joining of copper and other highly reflective materials, in particular, employing laser welding with a green wavelength.

By providing time-based waveform data on current, voltage, resistance, power, force, and displacement—as well as peak and RMS values—external weld monitors are able to provide the necessary data that can be used to understand, optimize, and benchmark the resistance welding process and verify accompanying equipment
