Paper Abstract

In laser gas cutting an appreciable fraction of the required energy flow density is contributed by the chemical reactions. As known from autogenous gas cutting two different mechanisms are possible: direct chemical reaction at the gas/metal interface and diffusion controlled reaction within an oxide layer. The interdependencies of gas flow, chemical reaction process, laser power, cutting speed, and plate thickness are studied.
