Laser joining processes, such as brazing and welding, are a common application in industry, especially in the automotive industry. These processes are the key to lightweight and efficient design with regard to the automotive industry. There, laser brazing is used mainly for visible joints due to the superior paint adhesion and surface roughness of brazed joints compared to welds. As laser brazing is applied in the automotive industry without using any fluxes or shielding gas, this leads to a difficulty in maintaining and ensuring the quality of brazed joints.
