ABSTRACT
The article discusses the specific performance characteristics of various laser sources that are applicable and available for laser welding. It explores the selection processes involving lasers that align with certain welding application categories in finding the best equipment. It suggests looking into the stability, tolerances, and accommodations of the welding equipment that should balance between penetration and speed.
