Laser Welding with Optical Fibres
Fibre optics for the transmission of high energy pulses has greatly expanded the scope of using lasers in material processing, especially welding. There is a cost reduction factor if one uses one laser for several welding sites at the same or at different machines. Also one can remove the laser from the machine itself and replace it by a fibre and a small optic. This gives greater accessibility to the machine and allows for a simpler construction.
