Paper Title:
Porosity Formation Mechanisms and Controlling Technique for Laser Penetration Welding
  Abstract

The distribution and appearance characteristics of porosities in laser penetrated weld of aluminum alloy were observed, and the formation mechanisms of porosities were analyzed in detail, and the influences of twin spot laser energy distribution on porosities were investigated. It showed that there are two kinds of porosities, metallurgical and technologic porosities, in laser penetrated weld of aluminum alloy. The formation of metallurgical porosities is related to the separation, congregation and incorporation of hydrogen in the weld pool, while instantaneous instability of the keyhole is an essential reason for the occurrence of technologic porosities. Twin spot laser energy distribution can enlarge diameters of the opening and the root of the keyhole, improve fluctuating conditions of the wall of the keyhole, increase stability of the keyhole, and consequently decrease technologic porosities in number, but it has no obvious influence on metallurgical porosities.
