Paper Abstract

The multikilowatt continuous carbon dioxide laser is an efficient, compact and robust system which meets many metalworking requirements. A brief account is given of important principles and characteristics of a range of lasers of this type developed at the UKAEA Culham Laboratory, and techniques are described for their use in welding and surface treatment operations. The underlying principles of these processes are summarised and results are presented which highlight the areas of manufacturing technology for which they are particularly suited.
