The combination of laser beam cutting and welding is an innovative technology for producing material bonded connections with high quality and low tolerances. With laser beam cutting the formed sheet parts can be trimmed very accurately and so the following joining operation can be conducted failure free. Because of the accurate feeding of auxiliary wire an exact excess weld height can be adjusted and rework can be reduced compared to other joining technologies.
