Principles behind laser welding operation
Publish on 5/24/2010 10:05:46 AMThe present use of laser welding is rooted in the scientific discovery of the first laser in the 1960s, when the effects of an amplified light beam forced by radiation emission were put into practice. The working principle behind laser welding actually lies in the emission generated at the meeting point between light and metal, with the latter emitting force radiation.
Ansaldo Abu Dhabi workshop to offer welding techniques
Publish on 5/24/2010 10:05:23 AMAnsaldo Energia, Italy's industrial company for turbine manufacture, has inaugurated its first new gas turbine workshop at ICAD III of the Higher Corp. for Specialised Economic Zones (ZonesCorp.) in Abu Dhabi, bringing its latest innovative industrial technologies for the first time to the Middle East.

Laser welding technique
Publish on 5/24/2010 10:05:09 AMLaser welding is technique used to weld pieces of metal together. It uses a laser beam as a heat source, which limits the heat to small areas and raises the speed of both the heating and cooling processes. Laser welding is often used to make cars, airplanes and spacecraft. The laser beam used in laser welding is very thin and very concentrated. It forms when a medium is excited and emits photons. Laser beams can be either continuous or pulsed.
