Since 2007, Rofin-Baasel UK has been supplying an extensive range of laser welding wires to go alongside the laser welding systems which lead the market in laser repair of injection mould tools, and are also the laser systems of choice for medical device manufacturers in the manual welding of surgical instruments. A new pricelist is available highlighting the improved range of materials and diameters currently held in stock and new prices are lower due to supply chain improvements.
Having supplied over 75km of wire to customers in the UK, Rofin-Baasel UK is now shipping to many customers throughout Europe. Wires are available with Certificates of Conformity, to ensure traceability and quality standards are met – all batches are marked with a reference number which can be compared against the chemical analysis of the batch from the material supplier.
Commonly used tool steels including H13, P20 and 420 stainless are in stock as well as some alloys with very high hardness for use on D2 or similar tools. In addition there are a wide range of other stainless steel alloys for use in the medical device industry. Aluminium, copper, titanium and nickel alloys are also available and more specialist alloys can usually be sourced on demand if they are not in stock.
Wires typically come in packs of 100 straightened rods in 320 mm lengths and the most commonly used diameters range from 0.2 to 0.6 mm which are ideal for deposit welding by laser. Larger diameter wires, used for TIG welding, can also be sourced on demand.
