Remote Laser Welding (RLW) of zinc-coated steel sheets is a great challenge for the automotive industry but offers high potentials with respect to flexibility and costs. In state of the art applications, sheets are joined in overlap configuration with a preset gap for a stable zinc degassing. This paper investigates RLW of fillets without a preset gap and conditions for a stable process. The influence of process parameters on weld quality and process stability is shown.
