Taylor-Winfield’s new Eclipse X1 is the most technologically advanced laser welder for metals finishing and galvanizing lines to date, eclipsing all other current systems on the international market. Made in the USA, the Eclipse X1 joins steel grades from LCS through AHSS and UHSS, as well as other metals such as aluminum and copper. Our laser welding system overcomes variation in strip shape and presentation and offers real-time feedback to ensure the highest weld quality. Download the Exclipse X1 brochure here

Taylor-Winfield has a long and substantial history of providing the highest quality coil joining welding machines to the metals processing industry. Our new Eclipse X1 solid-state fiber laser welder is no exception. The development of this machine evolved from our vast experience manufacturing coil joining welders and the shortcomings we have seen from laser welding machines on the current market. After collaborating with the world’s top laser welding experts on its technical design, the Eclipse X1 is the most modern fiber laser welding system for coil joining applications.
