The combination of laser with conventional arc processes provides the advantages of both in a single welding process. We are leaders in the development of hybrid welding technologies. Laser welding can be combined with GMAW (MIG/MAG), GTAW (TIG) or PAW (Plasma) arc processes to create a process with the speed of laser but with improved fit up tolerances and joint properties. Fraunhofer has equipment for all of the above process combinations available at its Plymouth facility.
