The present work deals with the possibility to weld by laser (CO(2) and Nd:YAG) coated and prepainted sheets used in automotive and can making industries. In particular to verify:

- The laser weldability of the examined materials;
- The limits of the laser welding technology applied to the examined materials.

The activity was articulated in the following way:

- Material selection;
- Welding production;
- Metallographic, mechanic and corrosionistic characterization of the welded joints.
