Laser welding, perhaps the most prominent tool for modern manufacturing systems, enable the performance of safe and sound weldments with operational reliability. Thus, the use of lasers provides economical efficiency via quantitative increase of production with quality improvement, and shortening the required welding process time. Laser welding can readily be used at pulsed and continuous mode with assisted systems. It may be time for a paradigm shift and for an exploration of new viewpoints with regarding its distinctive features. In the present investigation, we go beyond current classical approach by presenting novel features of laser welding included in these experiments. Thus, the purpose of this manuscript is to consolidate a proposal for reducing the time for pulsed laser welding with a novel design approach which can be called "vertical dimensions". This method can facilitate the human processes of making decisions for setting unknown parameters and shorten their process time by actively reducing operations with creating a unique approach. We characterize our resultant weld morphology of laser welds as a function of these vertical dimensions.
