Laser welded tailored blanks - Technical delivery conditions
This European Standard describes the requirements for laser welded tailored blanks made of alloyed and unalloyed steels, of uniform or different steel grades and with or without metallic and/or organic coatings, having uniform or different sheet thickness. It applies only to the (Tailored Blanks) as-supplied condition of tailored blanks.
After the welding process, tailored blanks are further processed to pressed parts by forming operations under the responsibility of the processor. In the design of the component due consideration should be given to the fact that the weld seam is less formable in comparison to the base material.
