Dukane Develops New Welding System
A new laser welding system from Dukane Corporation, St. Charles, Illinois, allows clear-to-clear plastic welding without the need of laser absorbing additives.
This system incorporates a recently developed 2-micron laser with a greatly increased absorption by clear polymers and enables a highly controlled melting through the thickness of optically clear parts. Proprietary LaserLinQ™ software provides users with the ability to break complex weld patterns into separate geometric segments, modify each segment independently and assign different welding parameters to each segment. This flexible welding system also allows rapid changeover of a wide variety of highly specialized tooling cassettes.
