Paper Abstract

Welding of thin metal sheet is an application, which is more and more often applied in the field of material processing with laser. In many of these applications it is necessary to weld the thin metal with high speed. A new coaxial high power CO2-laser concept offers the possibility to weld these metals. The presented welding has been realized with sheet steels, which are coated with a zinc layer. The results of the experiments are presented with pictures of the application station and pictures of the weldseam. What is furthermore demonstrated, are the quality and the cross section of the welded materials.
