Abstract The effects of heat input on the quality of laser-welded Mg-rare earth alloy NZ30K were studied. Using a 15-kW high-power CO$_{2}$ laser, the microstructure and mechanical properties of welded joints under different heat inputs had been analyzed and tested. It is found that the welding heat input plays an important role in laser welding of NZ30K. Good welded joint without macroscopic defects can be obtained using the proper heat input. With the increasing heat input, welding penetration gets deeper, the width of the heat-affected-zone becomes larger, and the distribution of precipitates changes concentration. Tensile tests display that the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of the welded joint tends to increase at first with the increasing heat input. After the welded joint gets full penetration, the UTS remains almost the same, although the heat input is increased.
