The GLX-3 laser welding system from Branson Ultrasonics (Danbury, CT) delivers clean, high-speed laser welding of large-format plastic parts with more complex geometries in automotive, appliance, medical, filtration, and other applications that require particulate-free welds. The company's Simultaneous Thru-Transmission Infrared (STTIr) process heats, melts, and joins the entire weld line of two or more parts simultaneously, delivering cycle times as fast as 0.5–5s on weld lines of 2.0m nominally, depending on part material and geometric complexity. The system yields weld depths of 1.0mm or more, yet holds tight tolerances on weld depths as shallow as 0.05mm or less. The system offers four levels of laser power (1250W, 1500W, 1750W, and a maximum 2000W), a wide range of clamping force (1-25 kN), and closed-loop, clamp-force control to meet demanding parts-welding requirements.
