Paper Abstract

Technology advances are described which have led to improved 1 kW average power solid state lasers. These developments lead to genuine processing advantages in terms of manufacturing flexibility, and in the case of welding, metallurgical quality. Results of various brief welding trials are reported on a number of different materials, with some preliminary mechanical weld test results.
