Paper Abstract

Copper vapor laser (CVL) was designed on the basis master oscillator (MO) - spatial filter - amplifier (AMP) system which is placed in thermostable volume. Processing material is moved by means of CNC system GPM-AP-400 with +/- 5 micrometers accuracy. Several cutting parameters are considered which define the quality and productivity of vaporization cutting: efficiency, cutwidth, height of upper and lower burr, roughness, laser and heat affected zones. Estimates are made for some metals with thickness 0.02 - 0.3 mm and cutwidth 0.01 - 0.03 mm. The examples of workpieces produced by CVL are presented.
