Paper Abstract

This paper presents the experimental work and the results obtained in laser welding of chandelles, to the sommier plates of the Super Phoenix 2 (SPX2) reactor. The real dimensions of the sommier (m 7.70 diameter) and the high number of chandelles to he fastened to the plates (1200 chandelles) impose very strict tolerances. The laser technology is particularly useful for the very low deformations induced in the welded component and for the possibility to manipulate the energy beam using flexible optical systems.
