EVALUATION OF THE PROPERTIES OF LASER BEAM WELDING PROCESS
1Mohan Babu R, S. Suresh Kumar
This article is all about evaluating the laser beam welding process using the stainless steel samples using the recent mechanical testing methods. Here firstly the stainless steel workpieces (SS304 & SS410) are cut to the required dimension of (8cm width * 15cm length * 4mm thickness). Then the cut workpieces are welded using the laser beam welding machine on both the top and bottom layer respectively. After being welded the samples are tested with the mechanical testing methods like bending test, tensile test, etc. Then finally the results are taken from the test and they are to find the properties of laser beam welding process.
