The article reports on hybrid laser arc welding. Detailed information on the history of hybrid laser arc welding (HLAW) is provided. It mentions the development of hybrid processing which includes the non-arc hybrid process which uses resistance heating between the part and tip of the wire feeding system to increase the temperature of the wire as well as the obstacles in the implementation of hybrid processes which is the main limitation in equipment cost.
