Superior Joining Technologies adds new laser welding system

March 25, 2019
The new laser powder welding system can be equipped with 300, 450, 600, or 900 W laser sources.

Superior Joining Technologies (SJTI; Machesney Park, IL), which offers highly technical and precise welding services, has acquired a new modular laser deposition technology (LDT) system to close a gap in its precision welding services offering.

The new laser powder welder can be equipped with 300, 450, 600, or 900 W laser sources to provide a wide range of objectives and focal lengths for unique welding jobs that feature varying geometry and fit characteristics. Filler metal is introduced into the laser weld joint, allowing greater control to depth of weld penetration, limited distortion of the substrate, and reduced additional corrective machining for thinner materials and small- to mid-sized assemblies.

"The addition of a fiber laser power source is a necessary step in the modernization of our equipment and the effort to upgrade the technology we use in the service of our clientele and compliance with the high standards of NADCAP accreditation for laser welding," says Thomas Shelow, vice president of new business development at SJTI.

The system acquisition provides the company's staff with a higher level of competence in the service of their existing customers and known prospects. It also allows them to revisit more conventional applications previously abandoned with better solutions that fit each customer’s unique design specifications.

With this newest addition, Shelow says that SJTI now has the capabilities to join materials that otherwise could not be welded, and to create complex geometries that were once difficult to produce—providing a valuable design advantage to a variety of industries.
