Laser hybrid welding: the technology
The perfect combination: laser hybrid welding combines the advantages of laser welding with those of arc welding.
In this welding process, an advancing laser beam initially heats the surface of the workpiece to vaporization point. This results in deep and narrow penetration. The subsequent arc forms a wide focal spot.
