Body-in-White

Apply fiber laser technology to "challenging" materials like welding galvanized steel, aluminum, and HSS.


  • Reduce Postprocessing Accomplish zero-gap welding of galvanized steel without spatter or weld pores.
  • Eliminate Filler Avoid "center line cracks" when welding aluminum 6000 alloys - without the use of filler wire.
  • Prevent Cracking Weld high-strength steels at rapid feed rates with no subsequent cold cracking.

Aluminum Welding

Use the ARM laser for welding of 6XXX without filler wire, avoid centerline cracks, and minimize spatter. Plus, adjust weld depth while keeping seam width constant.

Zn Coated Steel Welding

ARM lasers enable high-quality, zero-gap, overlap welding of galvanized steel without blowouts, and open up new possibilities in production.

Laser Welding of High-Strength Aluminum to Cast Aluminum

Both high-strength and cast aluminum deliver proven benefits for automotive construction, but also present challenges to laser welding. In particular, both are prone to hot cracking and spattering. These problems are solved utilizing a welding system based on the Coherent ARM laser and the new thyssenkrupp LSK06 laser clamping head.
