Abstract. The authors of this paper presented the results of research on mechanically-assisted laser forming of flat thin beams made of Inconel 627 and Inconel 718 alloys. The method of applying external forces to beams and the way of conducting this process will be presented. The deflections of beams depending on a given load will be presented. The research presented in this paper will be arranged to develop the technology of thin-walled spatial elements bending, e.g.: tubular elements, which are made of the tested materials.
