Modelization and characterization

Modelization and digital simulation of laser welding

Modelization and digital simulation are used to understand, predict, control or master the thermomechanical behaviour of the welded joints. The laser thermal supply, the experimental conditions and the metallurgy are information to take into account for the anticipation of defects and the definition of good operating conditions.


  • Prediction of distortion into the welded joint
  • Reduction of induced residual stress 
  • Reduction of the number of trials during the development period
  • Optimization of the part design
  • Optimized tooling
  • Cost reduction
  • Shorter development times

Advantages of the process

  • Time and material savings (material & parts) for R&D
  • Prediction of thermomechanical behaviour of the welded joints
  • Lowest level of distortion
  • Decision support (selection of welding sequences)
  • Optimal clamping
  • Position de pointage efficace
  • Controled heat cycle
