ABSTRACT
The article reports on a laser welding experiment which was carried out using 30kW laser power and a metal active gas (MAG) process in Germany. The experiment resulted to a production of a welding speeds of up to 2.5 meters per minute (m/min) with a maximum wire feed rate of 24 m/min. In addition, the experiment also revealed that gaps of up to 0.35 millimeters were welded in order to demonstrate the good gap bridging ability at such thicknesses. The gap helps improve the quality of the root.
