There is a difference between the molten pool formation location due to the arc alone in TIG-YAG hybrid welding and YAG-TIG hybrid welding but, in both cases, when the YAG laser was irradiated onto the moltenpool, easily formed by the action of the arc alone, a deep penetration could be formed, except that all the welds were not fully penetrated welds [25].
