Environmental, EMI/EMC Test Facilities and Laser WeldingBy Astra Microwave Products
Laser welding is performed in an inert gas atmosphere using Argon and can provide spot, stitch and continuous hermetic (vacuum tight) weld in pulsed operation mode in a glove box. Any weld compatible metals can be laser welded and we commonly laser weld parts made from aluminum, i.e. Al Alloy 6061 T6 for Package and Al Alloy 4047 for lid. With their well-defined beams, lasers are excellent tools for welding thin materials with localised heating, without effecting the heat-sensitive components.
