Paper Abstract

The interaction between laser beam and metal, and micromachining technology for small-diameter metal tubes by means of a copper vapour laser are considered. The quality and productivity of cutting have been analysed from a point of view of the laser beam intensity distribution in the treatment zone. The divergence of laser beam and its power have been selected to ensure a minimal cut wall roughness with the maximal production rate being preserved. A stent cutting technology for cardio surgery is presented. The technology equipment has been described for precision cutting of products with a cylindrical surface. Tiny devices being cut out from non-metal material
