X-Pro® laser welder

Fast, safe, and successful welding of challenging steel grades

There are good reasons to decide for our welding machines. One major advantage is that they enable you to process – and cold-roll – even difficult-to-weld steel grades on continuous strip processing lines. Take for instance the pickling line and tandem cold mill at Hyundai Steel PLTCM. It’s a standard procedure there to weld together martensitic steel grades (MS-W1200) before rolling with high reductions. SMS welders also join steels with a silicon content of 1.2 % and higher. Further impressive advantages are the short machine cycle time of less than 60 seconds, plus simple operation with reproducible results. You also benefit from great flexibility because you can choose the welding source to suit your requirements. That could be a conventional CO2 or a solid-state laser source.
