    In an ideal world, laser welds would always be made on perfect parts allowing no pre-weld gap, edge rounding or surface level offset. In the real world however, such deviations are not only unavoidable, but are subject to the cost/schedule/performance cons...

    Due to the high carbon levels of high-strength steels, laser beam welding of these materials generally leads to a substantial increase in hardness in the welding seam, which is often not acceptable. In order to achieve the required seam characteristics, process-technical solutions are necessary, which allow adaptation of th...

    The diode laser brazing of heat-resistant alloys with precious filler metals has been conducted using the tandem beam which consisted of preheating beam and main brazing beam. The 1mm thick plates of Inconel 600 and A286 alloys were butt-brazed using the 0.5mm diameter Au-18%Ni, Ag-10%Pd and Ag-21%Cu-25%Pd filler metals with a brazing flux. The processing parameters of the tandem laser powers and the ...

    Presented at ICALEO 2005

    The quality of laser beam welded seams is strongly influenced by hydrodynamic processes of the liquid material. One phenomenon with negative effects on the seam quality is the so called humping effect which occurs at high welding speed. New types of solid state lasers are allowing reduced focus diameters and consequently higher beam intensities. These improvements can be transferred into increased welding speed. Under the aim to optimize the high speed wel...

    Nd:YAG lasers with a double focus technique are usually used for welding of aluminium alloys, due to a low melt pool viscosity. For double focus welding, relatively high laser output powers and energy per section are necessary. Thus, techniques for reducing laser powe...

    Titanium is used as glasses frames because of its lightweight and good mechanical properties. On the other hand, a fiber laser with high beam quality is a promising heat source to produce a sound weld of satisfactory depth with good surface appearances, narrow heat-affect zones and high strength. Ther...

    Presented at ICALEO 2005

    Aluminium alloy 2024 is one of important heat treatable aluminium alloys with its strength gained from the precipitation hardening. Experiments were conducted on Nd:YAG laser keyhole welding of AA2024(T3) sheet of different thicknesses. It was found that the fusion zone of the weld becomes the weakest zone after welding due to the precipitate dissolution. The results obtained from the samples of different thickness show...

    Sensor Integration for Robotic Laser Welding Processes
    Authors:

    Presented at ICALEO 2005

    The use of robotic laser welding is increasing among industrial applications, because of its ability to weld objects in three dimensions. Robotic laser welding involves three sub-processes: seam detection and tracking, welding process control, and weld seam inspection. Usually, for each sub-process, a separate sensory system is required. This may lead to heavy and bulky tools, whereas compact and light sensory systems are needed to reach sufficient accuracy and accessibility. In out solution we will integrate all these functions in one compact mu...

    Presented at ICALEO 2005

    A new procedure of in-process monitoring and adaptive control has been developed for laser micro-spot lap welding of A3003 aluminum alloy sheets. The objective is to stably produce sound partial- and full-penetration welds without through-holes. In partial-penetration welds, the reflected laser beam and the radiated heat from the welding area were effective as in-process monitoring signals in detecting melting and though-hole formation in the uppe...
