Abstract
A 45 kW laser system was recently installed at 'Institut de Sourdure' in France in order to evaluate the possibilities of such high power beams in welding. Some results of welding various materials, different thicknesses and large components are presented. Some recent installations of high power laser equipments already integrated into production site or under development in ship building and steel fabrication are described. Finally, the objectives of an important research and development program launched recently for exploring the different aspects of laser welding in thick section steel fabrication is outlines.
