We do have some standard working parameters for welding with the
laser welder. I can send these to anyone who would like them.
You can contact me directly for this and I would be
happy to send them out. These may need to be adjusted according to
Rio also offers free training at our facilities here in Albuquerque.
You can come here for laser welder boot camp. This will get you
started welding. This training gets you moving in the right
direction. It does take some practice but the learning curve is very
low. We obviously can not cover every possible scenario that you
would run into when welding jewelry.
There are so many variables. Is the surface oxidized, is there
solder present. What material are you welding. Does the surface have
a high polish or asatin finish.
Some general rules apply when welding:
Welding - use a spot size of .3 -.4mm
Adding material - use a spot size of .6 -.7
For smoothing and polishing - use a spot size of 1.0 and up.
I always recommend starting out a little lower than you think your
going toneed for power and time.
You can always increase these setting easily but welding so deep
that you blow a hole in something or requires you to fix the damage.
Setting are easy to change and adjust.
The PulsePoint laser welder is the most user friendly machine on the
