THE INFLUENCE OF CUTTING PARAMETERS ON SURFACE QUALITY AND NITROGEN CONSUMPTION DURING LASER CUTTING

Abstract

Unconventional machining methods, or also progressive machining methods, such as laser cutting, waterjet cutting, ultrasound machining, etc. are undergoing a very rapid development. Laser cutting machines often evaluate even 80 parameters in real time. Their advantage is the significantly higher productivity. Many values are defined by the machine manufacturer and can not be changed for a given laser. For custom laser cutting there are 2 essential parameters, adjustable depending on the process gas employed. The aim of this article is to find the setting that will reduce the consumption of process media while maintaining or improving the quality of the machined surface.
