30 September 1996 Laser welding of diamond saw blades
Author Affiliations +
A specially designed folded quasi-sealed-off CO2 laser of 800W and TEMoo mode has been successfully used for welding of smaller diamond saw blades. Process parameters such as the relative position of the focal point to the joint edge are experimentally studied. The metallurgy aspect of the weld is also investigated. The bond strength and the loading capacity of the diamond saw blades under arduous conditions, e.g., in dry cutting are greatly increased by the laser welding.
