The influence of joint geometry and fit-up gaps on hybrid laser-MIG welding
2006 (English)In: 10th NOLAMP Conference: the 10th Nordic Laser Materials Processing Conference, 17-19 August 2005, Luleå Sweden / [ed] Alexander Kaplan, Luleå, 2006, 371-381 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents the results of an experimental program to investigate the sensitivity of the hybrid laser-MIG welding process to gaps between the work pieces being welded. It was concluded that the minimum throat depth of the welds remained surprisingly stable for fillet welds as long as the MIG parameters were set high enough to fill the gaps involved (up to a gap size of approximately 3 mm). If the MIG parameters were insufficient then the welding process collapsed with increasing gap widths.
