Emerson, Danbury, Connecticut, has introduced the Branson GLX laser welders to the Americas.

The GLX laser welders are available in two sizes, the GLX-2/ GLX-3, and deliver clean, high-speed laser welding of medium-format and large-format plastic parts with more complex geometries to meet the growing needs of automotive, appliance, medical, filtration and other applications that require particulate-free welds with superior aesthetic quality.

The laser welders can deliver cycle times as fast as seven seconds. Their STTIr technology enables the welders to accommodate variable weld widths and deliver weld depths of 1.0+mm, yet hold tight tolerances on weld depths as shallow as 0.05mm or less.

The GLX-2 and GLX-3 are designed for easy use, with a 12" color HMI screen based on a common global architecture that simplifies training, setup, adjustment and diagnostics. Both welders are housed in compact, Class 1 laser-safe enclosures that meet CE and ISO.
