Laser Welding with Max Photonics hand held fibre laser welding equipment


Wilkinson Star, one of the UK’s largest wholesale welding equipment distributors are proud to be the exclusive partner for Max Photonics hand held laser welding equipment in the UK and Eire.


Targeted at sheet metal fabrication industries, this technology has now been adopted into a growing list of applications including nuclear, aerospace, pharmaceutical and catering to name but a few.

Max Photonics fibre laser technology is a great supplement to conventional welding methods in most fabrication workshops. The technology can offer many advantages over conventional welding methods as below:


  • Fast welding speeds
  • Minimal heat affected zone
  • Minimal heat distortion
  • High precision and neat welding seams
  • Up to 4 times faster than TIG
  • Low consumable usage
  • High repeatability
  • Minimal training required
  • Uniform weld bead
  • Ability to weld various metals as well as dissimilar materials
  • Improves production efficiency
  • Reduced post weld cleaning times
  • Easy to use
  • Low application costs
  • Efficient energy usage
  • High welding strength
  • Excellent welding performance


Wilkinson Star Limited are committed to offering safe solutions and guidance to customers and users.


The new generation of Max Photonics hand held fibre laser welding equipment adopts advanced air cooling technology which ensure long term stability and reliability whilst maintaining a neat compact design. The series of machines are supplied with a 7” intelligent graphical user interface with 32 pre-set programmes and the ability to store a further 32 user defined programs. This allows quick, easy use and set up for multiple operators with high repeatability. The compact and ergonomically designed torch allows for comfortable welding for the operator whilst still being robust enough to withstand the pressures of use in most fabrication environments.

Wilkinson Star put safety as the priority when using laser welding machines. We also offer along with our integrator a full class 4 laser welding enclosure solution.
