Abstract [en]

A means for selecting the optimal process parameters for the laser cutting of recombinant bamboo, based on the design of experiments (DOE) approach, was presented. Recombinant bamboo of thicknesses of 5, 10, and 15 mm was cut with a CO2 laser. The parameters investigated were the laser power, air pressure, and cutting speed. The results were compared using a number of process responses which define the efficiency of the cut, including the upper kerf (UK) width, lower kerf (LK) width, and the ratio of upper-to-lower kerfs. Mathematical models were developed to establish the relationship between the process parameters and the kerf parameters; special graphs were drawn for this purpose. Finally, a numerical optimization was performed to find out the optimal process settings at which the upper-to-lower kerf ratio would be minimized.
