Laser Welding - A Status Report 670211

The laser welder and particularly the pulsed ruby laser welder has evolved into a specialized tool for specialized applications in the same class as the ultrasonic welder. Laser welders will not replace present welding equipment, but rather will supplement it and will not revolutionize the welding industry but rather extend its potential.
We have learned to recognize the limitations of this device in the welding field while at the same time we have acquired the necessary skills to better exploit its unique capabilities. This paper will serve to up date present information and to indicate some of the laser welding processes which appear promising.
