Laser welding of all metals
Laser welding can be utilised for many different purposes on all sorts of metals - not only Titanium. All metal frames - and e.g.jewellery - can benefit from the minimal impact the laser welder performs. Welding as close as 1mm away to surrounding plastic without heat damage is one of the advantages compared to traditional soldering. Remember how fried a frame can look after being torched by the soldering flame??
These days only about 1mm around a weld is affected by heat leaving paint, plastic and diamontees un-torched or damaged.
