The MEL Laser Welder™ is designed and engineered to be the most technically advanced laser welder on the market. The fully automatic welding machine requires very little operator involvement. This welding machine is also much more maintenance friendly than other laser machines on the market.


The MEL Laser Welder butt welds two coil ends together using an American built fiber laser system. This system is designed for use on either start/stop lines or continuous lines such as:

  • Pickling
  • Rolling Mill
  • Anneal & Pickle
  • Coil Prep
  • Galvanizing
  • Tube & Pipe Mills
  • Others

These machines can be used on a wide range of weldable alloys including carbon steels, stainless steel, silicon steels and aluminum.

MEL Laser Welder Advantages:

The Guild MEL Laser Welder requires far less maintenance than other competitor machines. This is derived from a fully solid state laser which has no moving parts and requires no special high price optics. The laser does not require any special gases, mirrors or special consumable parts to operate. The Guild MEL Laser Welder only requires one fiber optic cable that connects from the laser power supply to the laser welding head. This laser system makes welds that are equal to any other laser weld and the welds are fully rollable. The Guild MEL Laser Welder can shear and weld material ranging from .015″ (.381mm) up to about .400″ (10.0mm) thick and almost any strip width.
