Laser Welding of Automotive Transmission Components
Young-Nam Ahn, Cheolhee Kim
  In this research, laser welding of automotive transmission components was investigated to replace electron beam welding which is normally conducted under vacuum condition. Fiber laser welding was applied to the automotive transmission components - hub clutch and annulus gear. In the component welding, the laser welding parameters were optimized to eliminate spatters and the end crater. By applying laser welding to the transmission parts, the process time could be reduced up to 70% compared with the current electron beam welding process.
