Abstract

Laser-Gas Metal Arc (GMA) hybrid welding is fast making the transition from laboratory to production, in industries as diverse as shipbuilding to automobile manufacture. However, many aspects of hybrid laser welding are not well understood. This work presents a summary of our continued experimental explorations into various practical aspects of hybrid welding, such as joint design, gap tolerance, welding through conventional tack welds, weld overlap for circumferential pipe welding, and others.
