    The objective of this work is the design of a feedback control system for the laser welding process, which is able to control the penetration depth of the weld. Firstly the possibilities to control the penetration depth of a weld when only partial penetration is demanded, for instance in the case of overlap configurations, will be discussed. Furthermore a controller which is able to guarantee full penetration will be introduced. Full penetration is an important quality in the production of Tailor Welded Blanks.
