1. A method for establishing a plug connection, the method comprising:
combining a first terminal and a second terminal such that the first terminal and the second terminal overlap in a connecting zone;
sheathing the connecting zone with a plastic material which is transparent in at least one wavelength range; and
irradiating the connecting zone with a laser beam after sheathing the connecting zone, the wavelength of said laser beam lying in the at least one wavelength range, for the purpose of carrying out laser beam welding.
