Laser welding is finding growing acceptance in field of manufacturing as price of lasers have decreased and capabilities have increased. Laser welding is unique since it offers non-contact autogenous welding process that is not affected by the electrical conductivity or magnetic properties of the materials being welded. Lasers can be used in pulsed or CW (Continuous Wave) mode. In pulsed mode, laser welds are similar to resistance spot welding and in CW mode they are similar to arc welding… CONTINUE READING
