Influence of Welding ParamatersPenetration profiles of MIG welding of beads on plate with different fillers.
Laser Weldingvery high energy densities, about > 10e6 W cm-2.
The photograph shows a car door panel being subjected to laser welding (right) and laser hybrid welding (left) processes. Various benefits can be achieved by using laser technology to complement more traditional welding techniques. In this case a significant speed advantage is gained.
A braze is a filler metal with a melting temperature above 450C. According to this definition, brazing is performed at temperatures above 450C.
Example: Al heat exchanger
SolderingIf the temperature is below 450C, the process is called soldering
