CO2-laser beam welding of structural steel with a thickness up to 20 mm*
Soudage au laser CO2 de produits en acier de construction pouvant avoir jusqu’à 20 mm d’épaisseur
With the present laser technology, laser beam welding becomes attractive for relatively thick products. In order to improve the knowledge about the properties of the welded joints, tests have been carried out with different grades and thicknesses of steel plates. Strength, toughness and fatigue properties are found to be quite satisfactory, but further progress on weld quality and safety should be made.
Subject of a lecture at the 1995 ATS International Steelmaking Conference (Paris, December 6-7, 1995, Session 9).
The presented results mainly come from common investigations of the Institut für Lasertechnik, Aachen, and Thyssen Stahl AG, F-W-E, Oberhausen. Funds have been contributed by the Bundesministerium für Forschung und Technologie and the European Coal and Steel Community
