The laser sources commonly used for brazing are fibered diode lasers. Applications are medical, automotive, electronics, aerospace and many more.
In order to carry out the brazing, a brazing head is used. This head incorporates wire feed systems and the optical system for focussing the laser beam. Optics should be carefully selected to have a laser beam that covers the filler wire and preheats the part to be soldered to ensure good wettability.
