As one of the most substantial advancements in modern welding technology, the laser welding process allows industry professionals to achieve much higher precision and speed in welding operations. Additionally, products manufactured using the process perform at least as well as those produced using MIG or TIG—if not better—with lower overall production costs and shorter lead-times.
- Learn how total weld cost encompasses much more than just labor, equipment, and supplies.
- Discover 4 often overlooked and unmeasured costs that accompany traditional MIG and TIG welding processes.
- Realize how most unmeasured costs, in the determination of total weld cost, are found in grinding or post-weld clean-up processes required after traditional MIG or TIG welding.
- Find that when total cost is factored into the evaluation of traditional MIG or TIG welding vs. laser welding, this aids in the determination that laser welding is the better process in cosmetic applications.
