    Enhancing Performance and Energy Efficiency

    The MA1 range operates up to 4 times faster than traditional welding methods, offering potential energy savings of 80% to 90%. It's equipped with a state-of-the-art laser control system for high beam stability, consistently neat welding seams, improved welding strength, and minimal deformation. The cooling system boasts phase change heat conduction technology with self-adaptive fans to ensure long-term stability.

    Compared to traditional welding methods, providing:

    • Lower radiation and environmental impact
    • Increased speed
    • More aesthetic and sturdy welding seams
    • Easier learning curve
    • Smaller heat-affected zone
    • Less deformation
    • Better welding seam integrity
    • A wider range of weldable materials

    Comfort and Safety

    Our handheld welding torch is the lightest and smallest in the industry, weighing just 0.68kg. It's designed for comfort, stability, and easy operation, with multiple safety features that ensure continuous and safe welding operations throughout the day.

    Easy to Use

    With 24 pre-set modes for various materials, the range allows even beginners to operate the system effectively after just half an hour of training. These pre-set modes, including wobble parameters, make for wider welding seams and a high tolerance for workpiece assembly clearance. For advanced operators, additional process modes for different materials and thickness combinations can be created and stored.

    We also provide both the training and the safety equipment to accompany the laser welding solution - please contact our sales team for more information.
