The use of laser welding of automotive powertrain components is gaining momentum. Its advantages are weight, space and material savings compared to traditional assembly techniques. Due to its low-heat input attribute, laser welding provides nearly distortion-free welding at a high speed compared to other welding technologies.
This webinar gave an overview of a number of processes and production solutions to overcome existing challenges, along with guidelines defining realistic limits for these parameters.
