Laser In-Line Welding for Stainless Steel Strip & Slit Coil

Laser In-Line Welding for Stainless Steel Strip & Slit Coil


As we continue to increase manufacturing automation, the demand for larger and longer running stainless steel slit coils and spools is a common requirement.  To produce these larger traverse or ribbon wound coils during the slitting process, the strip is welded end to end.  This lengthening, allows the coil to run without continual supervision for longer periods of time.

Not all welds are equal and a poor weld can create havoc in the manufacturing process.  A quality weld is uniform, consistent, smooth, and includes no burn-out on the edges of the strip.
