    Presented at ICALEO 2008

    Laser engraving is becoming an appealing option for those applications where previously Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) was the only choice because of its advantages with practicability, time and cost. Laser engraving technology removes material in a layer-by-layer fashion and the thickness of layers is usually in the range of a few microns and it is depending on several parameters such as the specimen material, laser power, Transverse Electromagnetic Mode (TEM), and beam traverse speed. The crucial ...

    Presented at ICALEO 2008

    Wood products such as MDFB (medium density fiberboard) have become extensively used today in the furniture and sign industries among other applications. CO2 laser cutting of MDFB has also been successfully applied due to the fast cut speed response of the process. Nonetheless, laser cutting of MDFB having thickness greater than 8 mm, keeping focal position fixed at the surface of th...

    Fiber lasers offer distinct advantages over established laser technology with respect to power efficiency, beam guidance and beam quality. Consequently, the potential of these new laser beam sources will be increasingly exploited also for laser cutting applications that are conventionally carried out with CO2 lasers. However, theoretical estimates of the effective absorptivity at the cut front suggest...

    Presented at ICALEO 2008

    High average power is not always the answer for laser material processing. Processing speeds can be increased with more average power however; there is no gain in efficiency meaning that costs and/ or distortion can be greatly increased. A better solution would be to get more from the laser output i.e. a more efficient beam- material interaction. In recent years, GSI Group, Laser Division has undertaken a number of research initiatives to optimize lamp ...
