ABSTRACT
The introduction of the high power fiber laser with brilliant beam quality has enabled the rapid development of remote laser welding (RLW). This paper presents a theoretical review of remote laser welding. As a promising technology, RLW offers increased flexibility, high operational speed, and reduced cycle time to process a wide range of workpieces. This study presents the typical characteristics of RLW with high power fiber lasers. It also investigates the influence of process parameters such as laser power, welding speed, shielding gas supply, beam inclination and focal position on the weld seam quality.
