The feasibility of a combination of two CO2 lasers was demonstrated by the use of two 5 kW lasers. The diagnostics have shown that an interference of the two single laser beams in one common focal point did not occur. The technological potentials for welding and surface treatments were investigated for different conditions of focusing and laser parameters. In welding a higher top bead quality and process stability is obtainable at approximately constant geometric seam parameters.
