LIGHT SOURCES FOR LASER-WELDING APPLICATIONS


Ambrus Kőházi-Kis

Abstract

In up-to-date industry laser welding has become a well-founded joining technology. High productivity, repeatability, low heat input, and fast welding speed are some of the main advantages of laser welding compared to conventional joining technologies. In this publication I give a short survey of the recent progress of the laser-welding technology.
