What is Laser Welding?

Laser welding technology enables us to extend our services further into the field of microfluidic plates and manifolds for prototypes, small batches and production quantities, in a range of materials such as; acrylic, polycarbonate and Ultem.

For cleaner, safer, more accurate bonded components with long-term stability, laser welding joins layers of thermoplastics, without additional chemicals or materials.

At IPFL, laser welding is more than a service – it’s a commitment to providing advanced, precise, and hygienic fabrication solutions. Our state-of-the-art laser welding capabilities are at the forefront of plastic fabrication technology, ensuring that every project we undertake meets the highest standards of quality and efficiency.
