Abstract
Laser-arc hybrid welding processes are meanwhile recognised for their robustness, efficiency and flexibility. Especially the coupling of a deep-penetrating laser beam with the heat and molten metal supplying gas metal arc (GMA) is a proven hybrid technique. It significantly expands the original welding application range of lasers. The "Integrated Nozzle" is a consequent hybrid solution of Fraunhofer ILT with successful industrial implementations sine the year 2000. It reliably avoids air entrainment into the interaction zone, ensures proper propagation and coupling of laser and arc and enables a compact and slender welding head design. Actual versions of this key component for hybrid systems and results of investigations and applications in steel and aluminum with CO2 and Nd:YAG lasers are presented.
