ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of Meyer Werft GmbH to expand its welding capability with the addition of two disk lasers TruDisk 10003s and a CO2 laser TruFlow 12000. The shipbuilder has been utilizing CO2 lasers from TRUMPF to weld its metal plates for a couple of years. Moreover, the company will employ the disk laser for their laser hybrid welding in thick sheet metals and will also gain from beam guidance via laser light cable. It uplifts the production versatility of the company.
