Title: Laser welding of thin cross sections

Abstract

The Laser Processing Facility of the Material Fabrication Division at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) currently has three pulsed Nd-YAG lasers dedicated to metal working activities. The lasers are used for precision cutting, drilling, welding, and brazing. The pulsed Nd-YAG laser has limited penetration capability for welding and therefore has been applied to welding cross sections generally less than 0.040 inches in thickness. At LLNL the process has proven particularly useful for welding cross sections less than 0.005 inches thick. Four examples of thin cross section parts fabricated with the laser are cited to illustrate the usefulness of the process.
