Paper Abstract

Many types of CO2 lasers have been commercially available for processing not only of metals but also of non- metals such as acrylic, epoxy glass, ceramics, and glass due to the demands of industrial applications. CO2 lasers with a middle power range of approximately 200 W are attractively suitable for plastics materials processings because of the high absorption. Single-stroke drawing with focused beams has been generally used as a conventional method which requires high accuracy of processing. For sophisticated laser sculptures, various surface effects would be required which might be difficult to be realized only with the focused single-stroke drawing.
