AcronymWEALSTELT

Proposal titleWelding of Aluminium to Steel by means of Laser Technology

AbstractWelding aluminium to steel can be used for many interesting possibili- ties. One of the

most important applications can be found in yacht and ship building and transportation

industries. Here, the welding of the two materials can lead to enormous weight savings and

conse-quently to reduction of gas emission and fuel savings. Until recently, it was

impossible to join aluminium to steel by means of welding. However, new possibilities arise

with the development of high-powered laser technology. This project aims to perform a

co-operative research to the development of methods and techniques to weld aluminium to

steel.A characteristic of such welding is that 3-D welding is required.  This requires the

use of a high powered Nd:YAG laser and robots.
