The welding additional material known as "Clearweld®" enables complete independence of the color design from the requirements coming along with the conventional laser welding process. The liquid material is applied in the welding plane prior to assembling the joining partners. Clearweld® absorbs the incident laser radiation, thus providing the desired cohesive junction. Unlike other IR-absorbing materials, Clearweld® becomes completely clear after being exposed to radiation, providing the possibility of color-independent design in the joining zone.
In addition to this new benefit, the Clearweld®-system offers interesting new possibilities for the geometrical design of the joining partners. Creating multi-layer joints becomes possible in one single process while maintaining a high processing speed.
LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, Plastics Welding Division is an official partner of Clearweld® and provides you with the necessary assistance for your product design and the process of implementing this highly innovative technology.
