Laser welding process is employed in the manufacturing of critical components where the final assembly units necessitate strict tolerances like low distortions and residual stresses. Laser beam welding offers several advantages like low heat input, very narrow heat affected zone, low residual stresses, low distortions and good mechanical joint properties in the weld joints when compared to the conventional techniques like Tungsten Inert Gas Arc welding processes. However, the implementation of…
