Paper Abstract

A system has been built for the fast control of the laser welding process in conduction regime. Based on a traditional Proportional Integral Derivative analysis, the system can regulate millisecond laser pulse. Besides, the interaction in this regime has been monitored with different diagnostics. Visible signal above target, IR signal from surface and visualization from CCM camera have been correlated as function of laser power density to distinguish the different phases of interaction. With this experimental set up, the detector used for control process could be calibrated. The integration of the system is shown for watch parts assembly.
