    Abstract :

    - Hybrid laser-arc welding, originally proposed in the 1970s, but more recently of renewed interest, combines deep penetration keyhole laser welding with an arc welding process in a single process zone. The hybrid process offers the benefits of the separate processes, and overcomes some of their respective drawbacks, such as the lower tolerance to joint fit up of laser welding, or the higher heat input of arc welding, which increases distortion and subsequent re-work costs. These costs have been estimated to be up to 15-30% of the total labour cost for new construction. Consequently, hybrid welding is already applied in some industries, including shipbuilding, as well as being extensively researched for a variety of materials and industrial applications. For hybrid welding of steel plates, high power output CO2 lasers have typically been used.This paper presents an investigation about hybrid laser-MIG welding in construction steels .An introduction about welding processes involved
