The article discusses the advantages of remote laser welding. Inorder to improve the fundamental of laser processing, being a noncontact operation, remote laser processing was developed to offer a standoff distance about 16 inches, and to maneuver the beam results in a comparatively large work area. In addition, the remote laser welding system is capable of producing butt, fillet, and lap welds.
