Paper Abstract

Plume generation and the effects of the plume on the welding process and three methods for suppression of the plume are discussed. An experimental nozzle for Nd-YAG laser welding is presented. The nozzle is used for welding experiments with Stainless Steel and Titanium. Results show that the nozzle is suited for creation of a shielding gas atmosphere and for protection of optic components. No significant effect of the plume suppression is found. This may be due to the low power densities used throughout the experiments.
