An explanation of ‘striation free' cutting of mild steel by fibre laser
2009 (English)In: Lasers in manufacturing 2009: proceedings of the Fifth International WLT-Conference Lasers in Manufacturing, LIM 2009 : Munich, Germany, June 15th - 18th, 2009 / [ed] Andreas Ostendorf, Stuttgart: AT-Fachverlag , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents the results of an experimental and theoretical investigation into the phenomenon of ‘striation free cutting', which is a feature of fibre laser cutting of thin section mild steel. The paper concludes that the creation of very low roughness edges is related to an optimisation of the cut front geometry when the cut front is inclined at angles close to the Brewster angle for the laser - material combination. For purely geometric reasons this particular type of cut front optimisation is not possible for CO2 laser cutting of mild steel.
