Paper Abstract

The possibility of producing laser welds by the so called "deep" penetration welding mechanism similar to the well established electron beam welding technique has been known for almost ten years. However, unlike electron beam welding, the beam metal interaction mechanisms can have a serious effect on the weld depths achieved in a single pass. The relevant laser process and material parameters will be discussed in terms of their effect on welding performance and compared with other welding methods.
