G.H. Tool adds laser welding

G.H. Tool & Mold, a Tooling Tech Group company, invested in an AL500 mobile laser welding system from Alpha Laser for making die repairs and engineering changes to mold cavity surfaces, as well as refurbishment of critical wear surfaces. The accuracy of the laser beam allows for focusing into deep cavities and recesses in complex molds. Pulsed laser welding employs lower temperatures than other welding approaches, resulting in a much smaller heat-affected zone, which has a positive impact on how a repaired or modified mold will perform over time.
