Abstract: Alloy metal has received special attention in the aerospace and defense areas. The AISI 4130 alloy steel had been also considered, since it is applied in landing gears, small aircrafts engine cradles, and besides general industries. The Laser Beam Welding of high strength metals obtained small Weld Zone and better quality with good appearance. In this research work, a Laser Beam Welding (LBW) is used to weld AISI 4130. The experiments are conducted accordingly combination of Taguchi L25 based 5 levels of Laser Power, Speed, Angle, Focal Length and Focal Point Position. The AISI 4130 weld joint Bead Width and tensile strength are measured and analysed by ANOVA. Microstructure and SEM with EDAX are using to analysis the AISI 4130 weld joint. 
Keywords: Laser Beam Welding, AISI 4130, ANOVA, WOA, SEM, EDAX.
