How Laser Welds


This Bulletin_80 deals with Online Resources on Laser Beam Welding.

See also the revised issue of our website page on Laser Beam Welding.

Two related pages are Laser Beam Cutting and Laser Drilling.

Other resources were published in PWL#037B.

Articles related to this subject were published in Practical Welding Letter in issues:

In the Section 5 - Online Press: Recent Welding Related Articles, of our Practical Welding Letter, links to many Articles on Laser Welding are available in the following issues:

These can be found in the Index of Past Issues of PWL. Some of the published online resources referred here in this Bulletin_80 can be downloaded at no cost.

To benefit from the information there are no shortcuts: one should dedicate to learning the necessary time.

The references published in this Bulletin_80 are selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

Some of the sources are commercial companies, presenting their services or goods together with technical advice. No endorsement or recommendations of such offers is intended. Readers should check if such information meets their purposes and needs.

The addresses reported hereafter were live and correct at the time of their publication. There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).
If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines. In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.
