Laser welding has grown in popularity because of the numerous ways it can produce tools critical to industrial and manufacturing machines. This process is excellent for cutting carbon, aluminum alloys, and stainless-steel material in gauge thickness and plate. It also provides a cleaner edge with improved perpendicularity than other forms of flame cutting, along with a smaller kerf and fewer heat-affected areas. Difficult profiles, tight tolerances, and precision-based high-speed cutting requirements are all great candidates for laser cutting.

The Laser Welding Process
Laser welding generates a highly concentrated beam of light to produce a metal-to-metal weld with no filler material needed. The beam of light is amplified and directed on the material seams until they reach a melting point that fuses the two surfaces together. Gas, solid-state, and fiber are the most common types of laser welding technologies. Laser welding automation results in quality, repeatability, and a high level of productivity. The laser welding process is excellent for cutting carbon steel, low alloy steel, aluminum, and stainless steel materials.
A Commitment to Quality
OMS offers vertically integrated turnkey manufacturing processes including extensive in-house 2nd and 3rd step processing capabilities. Our fully automated laser welding equipment represents the most current in technology. Each facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified offering significant capacity and manufacturing redundancies. We practice collaboration on new and existing products using our Value-Analysis/Value-Engineering (VA/VE) process. This allows us to validate the manufacturing process prior to production, saving development time, reducing costs and delivering on schedule every time.
