EWF-ELW course in laser welding / laser hybrid welding

Published: 19 February 2019

Laser welding is a high-productivity joining method for the modern manufacturing industry, and the method replaces increasingly conventional welding methods.

Laser welding is the method of the future according to many experts and fits many materials and different production environments. The European Welding Federation, EWF, has developed an independent special course in laser welding and laser hybrid welding that Luleå University of Technology now provides in Swedish. An international diploma, the EWF diploma, guarantees top quality education.

Course dates:

Part 1: 10-12 December, 2019
Part 2: 14-16 January, 2020
Part 3: 11-12 March, 2020

The deadline for registration is October 18th 2019

The course includes

Theoretical part:
Laser welding process and their function, Materials and their weldability, Characteristics for laser welded joints, Manufacturing and applications, Laser hybrid welding process, Joint design, Quality assurance and laser safety. (Total 28 hours)

Practical part:
Process parameters and its impact on fiber, and Nd: YAG laser welding, Light and hard welded materials, Laser hybrid welding. (Total 30 hours and 10 hours home work)

The course is conducted on three occasions in 2-3 days in a three-month period. Theory and practice are combined and work together to achieve the best possible learning. The examination comprises three hours written knowledge control and approved laboratory reports. Passed students receive an EWF diploma as a course certificate.


Course coordinator is Jan Frostevarg, senior lecturer in Manufacturing Systems Engineering at Luleå University of Technology. Jan has an extensive experience in laser welding and has published several scientific articles in the field.
