YAG laser welding for body in white has been developed and applied to the joint of the roof and body side of new L-class car. By comparison with the resistance spot welding, which is conventional joining method, the laser welding has some advantages, such as one-side welding and continues welding. So the joint structure can be improved to lightweight with high strength and stiffness. And the appearance of joint also is improved.We use two 3KW YAG lasers and robots with fiber optics. The roof and body side panel are galvanized zinc coated steel, and lap welded. The most critical factor for mass production is the gap control technique, and we developed the gap control system with special pressure device. And in-process monitoring system is also developed which analyzed the intensity of plume and back reflection of YAG laser.

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
