3D Laser Cutting – Laser Welding

3D Laser Cutting – Laser Welding

Our first 3D cutting and welding plant was created in 1999. We have gone a long way since then. Today, with our 2 plants, we can cut not only flat metal sheets but also curved ones, and perform punctures or trim pre-shaped pieces without having to create very expensive molds. We can make cuts into medium-large size tubes; tubes that cannot pass through the mendrels of the laser tube; or curved tubes. Thanks to our technology we can also perform laser weldings. In fact, in the last ten years, this type of welding has become more and more popular. It allows to weld even very thin sheets, which cannot be absolutely done with other welding methods. Whether you need to weld or to cut, we have the possibility of setting our plants in the office through our cam.

SGL 3D Laser Cutting and Welding Team

Our 3D cutting team can boast 30 years of experience in SGL!

In this department we have joined the experience of one our historical collaborators, who in 1999 accepted the challenge to create and follow this department, with the enthusiasm and curiosity of a young man. They have been working together for a few years and the elder one is training the younger one in the creation and processing of the various pieces!

Let's Talk About Your Ideas

3D Drilling allows to
  • create the holes needed on a convex back or curved tubes,
  • cut the machining allowance in stamped or deep drawn pieces.
3D welding allows to
  • Weld overlayed metal sheets
  • Weld the threaded bushings on the metal sheet pads without the need to re-process the threading deformed by the heat of a tig or mig welding.
Laser welding can be defined as the welding with the lowest possible thermal input, making it even more advantageous. The laser beam allows to reach where the operator cannot arrive, because the welding point is set at 300 mm from the head of the welding and doesn’t require bulky torches. SGL MIX: It’s one of the most versatile machines we have. It completes all our processes, especially when combined to the turning and stamping processes. You can decide up to the last moment, if and where to add holes.
