In this paper, laser welding of 316L and AISI 4340 steel is studied. Studies are focused on the effects of laser parameters on the depth and width of the welds. The results show that increasing in pulse energy and frequency will increase the weld depth and the weld width. The calculation of effective peak power density related to the welded joints results in optimum operating welding parameters with full penetration and proper dimensions and strengths. The tensile strength values of the full penetrated weldments are greater than the tensile strength values of AISI 316 base metal. The effects of laser parameters on weld grain size and HAZ size were investigated. The results show that the weld grain size and HAZ size increase with pulse energy and frequency.
Key words: Laser parameters / tensile test / grain size / HAZ size / microhardness
