Laser Welding / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
A Comprehensive overview of the theory and applications of laserweldingThis complete and up-to-date overview examines both the state ofthe art and likely future directions of laser welding technology.Paying particular attention to manufacturing, where applications oflaser welding range from vehicle assembly to the joining ofmicroelectric components, this comprehensive volume reviews thefundamentals, examines the latest research data, and offersdetailed coverage of practical applications. The emphasis is onoptimizing laser welding techniques to achieve defect-free resultsat high speed and under reproducible conditions. Author Walter W.Duley also discusses design issues, material properties, and theefficient delivery of laser radiation in welding applications, aswell as the practical aspects of joint design. Other importantfeatures of this book include:* Comprehensive data on real-world laser welding applications,including the new application of tailor blanking* Performance criteria for numerous laser welding systems* A review of available welding data for various metals and othermaterials* A section on laser welding diagnostics and monitoringtechniques* Over 160 illustrations* Extensive references and a bibliography for specific industrialapplications.Laser Welding is an indispensable resource for engineers andscientists using laser welding technology and a useful text forstudents in physics, material science, and mechanical engineering.It is also a valuable reference for researchers and designersdeveloping new laser welding systems and studying the laser weldingprocess. Walter W. Duley is a professor at the University ofWaterloo in Ontario, Canada, and is the founder and former chairmanof Powerlasers Limited. His previous books include UV Lasers:Effects and Applications in Materials Science, Laser Processing andAnalysis of Materials, and CO2 Lasers: Effects and Applications.
